Renovation works completed for Frankfurt Airport’s Visitors’ Terrace

Airport operator Fraport reopened its Visitors’ Terrace at Frankfurt Airport in Germany today (July 28) following a recent renovation project to improve visitor facilities.

Located in Terminal 2 (T2), the 19,400ft² terrace has been redesigned to include a modern reception area for welcoming guests, attractive new flooring in the outdoor area and comfortable seating to make the time spent on the terrace even more enjoyable. A new stainless steel wire mesh fence with apertures for taking pictures has also been installed meaning that guests no longer need to clear a security check before entering the terrace.

Dr Matthias Zieschang, chief financial officer, Fraport, said, “Since its inauguration in 1994, our Visitors’ Terrace in T2 has been a magnet for tourists, local residents, and aviation enthusiasts alike, attracting up to 2,700 guests every day. The terrace is a major feature of the airport, proving that it’s much more than simply a transportation facility.

“Frankfurt Airport is a real experience, a tourist attraction in its own right and always worth a visit. Our guests enjoy the fascinating world of aviation, witnessing aircraft from all over the world take off and land, and the action on the apron, as well as the atmosphere in the terminals. Now, the look and comfort of the new, improved Visitors’ Terrace will further enhance their experience.”

The Visitors’ Terrace will be open from Monday to Friday between 10:00am and 6:00pm, and until 7:00pm on weekends. A day pass costs €3 (US$3.30) per person, with children younger than four and disabled persons with proof of status being admitted free. Families and other groups can purchase five day passes for €12 (US$13.30).
