2/3 June: Fun Days for Kids

Awaiting our youngest visitors are an exciting airport tour and all manner of fun and games.

Illustration: Fun Days for Kids at Dresden Airport

To mark International Children’s Day, Dresden Airport is organising two fun days for 3- to 14-year-olds and their families. The highlight will be a series of exciting tours with lots of attractions for kids between 09:00 and 18:00.

On the 90-minute airport tour, children will find out lots of fascinating facts about flight operations at the airport. The tour starts with an introductory talk at the airport information desk. Then you’ll pass through security and board an apron bus which will take you out onto the tarmac to watch aircraft being handled and the ground support equipment in operation. At the fire station you’ll get to see a range of firefighting vehicles, including a real Panther and a demonstration of how it fights fires. The highlight of the tour will be a simulated house fire.

Depending on the weather, this will be followed by various indoor or outdoor activities: face painting, arts and crafts, table football, an exhibition featuring a historic police helicopter and the legendary Baade 152 – the first German passenger jet aircraft – along with lots of other surprises. Refreshments will be available.

  • Discounted parking: €5 (have your parking ticket discounted at the airport information desk)
  • Children up to age 14: €10, adults: €12

Exhibition: STASIS and MOVEMENT, the peace before the flight


Thomas Reichstein presents his figurative, life-size sculptures embodying “inner peace” at various points throughout the Dresden Airport terminal. A particularly interesting example is the life-size “Das Liegende Paar” (The Reclining Couple). Other works include abstract mythical creatures that also appeal to children.

The Dresden-based artist explains his intention thus: “The airport is a place where the journey pauses, is put on hold. You set off full of vigour at home, get to the airport, check in and drop off your baggage. And then, once you have completed all the formalities, you experience a unique phase of relaxation. You can stroll around, meditate or enter into a dialogue with artworks.”
