Passenger observation decks

Fresh air prior to departure

The passenger observation decks offer travellers a chance to enjoy some fresh air before departure. Breath-taking views at the heart of flight operations will delight not only aviation fans.

Dock E passenger observation deck

Relax on passenger observation deck E before departure, a great place to enjoy some fresh air and watch the activity. The deck is situated in the middle of the three runways and offers a spectacular view of flight operations. Experience arriving and departing aircraft, mainly long-haul flights, live and up close.

The telescopes on the observation deck enable you to get an even closer view of activity on the apron. The A380 is a highlight and not only for aviation fans. Currently the world’s largest aircraft, it docks in immediate proximity to the observation deck several times a day. Play areas also make the time on the deck fun for children.
