Would you like to have a look behind the scenes at Frankfurt Airport? This 45-minute tour gives you an incredible opportunity to witness the ground handling of aircraft from all over the world and marvel at takeoffs and landings.
Café de Luxe
At Germany’s largest aviation hub   A genuine window on the world
The oldest fans still recall going on Sunday outings with their families to enjoy coffee and cake in a locale right next to the apron with a closeup view of colorful aircraft from faraway countries almost close enough to touch.

A new offering of the Frankfurt Airport’s Visitor Services has now revived some of this nostalgia: a tour dubbed “Café de Luxe”.

Lasting 45 minutes, it takes visitors around the apron to acquaint them with the ground handling operations at Germany’s largest aviation hub. It includes live narration by a seasoned guide who regales them with a steady stream of interesting facts.

To top it off, the group is taken to the tradition-steeped Käfer’s Restaurant in Terminal 1 to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea or a soft drink plus their choice of a large selection of homemade pies and cakes.

Giant panoramic windows provide an excellent view of aircraft being serviced right next to the building.

The first beverage and piece of cake are included in the price. The tour can be booked for individuals or groups and costs 16 euros per person.
