Frankfurt airport has opened a new outside roof terrace within the transit zone at Terminal 1.

Dubbed the “Open Air Deck”, the 138 sqm space is open daily between 0500 and 2300, for all non-Schengen passengers.

Features of the €1.5 million terrace include “comfortable seating surrounded by plants”, views of the airport with a telescope which can be used free of charge, a stand which “provides information about what’s going on down on the apron”, and a screen detailing the weather forecast provided by the German Weather Service.

The airport also highlights that “you’ll find fresh air and natural light – from the south, no less – to help overcome jetlag”.

The new rooftop terrace adds to the existing Visitor’s Terrace which is located in the publicly accessible part of Terminal 2, on level 4 next to the Food Plaza.
