Services for visitors
Experience something different at Cologne Bonn Airport! An attractive destination for a day trip, with an exciting guided tour behind the scenes of the Airport, or a sightseeing trip by night.
The observation decks offer our visitors an unrivalled view of the main runways, aprons and the cargo and military areas. Here, they can get the blast of the turbines and watch the aircraft take-off and land. An ideal destination for technology enthusiasts, but also for the whole family.
How about another cappuccino? Or something to eat? We look forward to welcoming you in the Airport’s cafés, bars and restaurants.
The visitors’ terraces are in Terminal 1 at "Stern C". They are open every day from 5.00 - 0.00 hours, and entrance is free.
Visitors with limited mobility can reach our observation terrace on the fifth floor via the lift at Staircase 4
For safety reasons, the visitors’ terraces are not open in the event of bad weather, storms or black ice.
Guided tours of the Airport
Our team at the Visitor Centre can give you a close-up view of the really big aircraft. Every group has their own individual guided tour. The visitors’ bus takes you on to the apron where you can see at first hand how the baggage is stowed and what else happens during the ground handling of an aircraft, and lots more.
Our team is there for visitors from Monday to Friday - 09:15, 10:00, 10:30, 11:45, 12:15, 13:30 and 15:15 – so make the most of it and enjoy a guided tour of the Airport. The tour lasts about 1½ hours and you do have to register.
