The Quiet Room is a place of silence, which all passengers may use for free regardless of their worldview, culture and religious affiliation.
The Quiet Room is located in Terminal 1, Area Z, Level 3 and is open daily to 10 p.m.
Travelers looking for a place to unwind can enjoy a few moments of stillness and contemplation in the Quiet Room at Frankfurt Airport. In this age of constant availability, many people long for a place to take refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and turn inward. Located in Concourse Z of Terminal 1, the Quiet Room may be used by all passengers regardless of their worldview, culture and religious affiliation.
The design of the Quiet Room is entirely neutral and does not contain any cultural or religious characteristics. One highlight is the gold-plated undulating ceiling in combination with a special lighting concept. A golden gleam attracts passengers to the room. The atmosphere of the room changes with the weather and time of day: the darker it is outside, the warmer and more golden the room becomes.
Harry Gatterer, a trend researcher and futurologist who leads the Zukunftsinstitut (“Future Institute”) in Frankfurt and Vienna, explains why havens like this are so important in today’s fast-paced world: “In the 21st century, we are constantly bombarded by masses of information and bathed in the glow of screens with hardly a break. The so-called information society is now reacting to this overkill with a countertrend: mindfulness. It’s therefore safe to say that in the future, people will actively seek moments in which to reflect and reconnect with themselves. This type of everyday spirituality is poised to become an essential survival technique. The principle of ‘strength in serenity’ has never before been so relevant.”
