Watch, film, photograph
Dresden International Airport is a popular destination for day trips for grown-ups and children alike. If you would like to watch, film and take pictures of planes, we can recommend the viewing platform (gallery level) in the Dresden Airport Terminal. It is open 24 hours a day and there is no charge for admission.
During private events the visitor platform is not open to the public. It may also be closed for setting-up before and dismantling after such events. You can check whether the visitor platform is open before your visit by phoning the airport information desk on +49 (0)351 881-3360.
You can also watch planes on the tarmac being handled between landing and take-off through the panoramic glass wall in the airport forecourt. The Customer Services department runs exciting guided tours which give you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the airport.
Our tip: Why not combine your trip to the airport with a stroll through the shops and Dresden’s biggest travel centre in the terminal.
