Before Taking Off to Your Holiday Destination: Shop and Dine at Frankfurt Airport!

Many shops and restaurants have reopened at Frankfurt Airport – Tim Mälzer’s “Pezzo di Pane” gives you an authentic taste of Italy

Welcome back to Frankfurt Airport! More and more people are longing to travel again, and passenger volumes at the airport are expanding as a result. Numerous shops and restaurants are also reopening to serve them, and will be ready to welcome you in Terminals 1 and 2 right on time for the start of the summer school holidays in the German state of Hesse on July 16.

“Finally we’re able to offer our passengers a full range of shopping and dining opportunities again,” says Anke Giesen, Fraport AG’s executive board member responsible for retail and real estate. “Together we’re gradually returning to normality after the the pandemic-induced dry stretch. And we have every reason to look ahead with optimism.”

There’s a broad range of attractive offerings at FRA, from leading German and international brands to locally popular proprietor-led shops and restaurants. In Terminal 1, passengers and visitors can visit the “Shopping Boulevard” and “Shopping Avenue” malls. Brands including Boss, Falke, Llyod, and Gant beckon with summer discounts and glimpses of the new winter collections. You can also head for one of seven recently reopened Travel Value and Duty Free shops to find an exquisite perfume or gifts for your loved ones at home, or any of a wide range of other attractive products.

How about a tasty latte macchiato before taking off? The teams of some 80 cafés and restaurants are overjoyed to be serving guests again. If you wish to dine inside a restaurant, you need to present evidence that you are fully vaccinated or recovered or have recently tested negative. However, all foods and beverages can also be ordered to take away. The Food Plaza on the top level of Terminal 2 offers guests a breathtaking view of the action out on the airfield and airport apron.

There are also new additions at Frankfurt Airport. For example, Tim Mälzer and his partners have teamed up with Tellerrand Consulting to create and launch a new Italian restaurant dubbed “Pezzo di Pane” in Pier A of Terminal 1 on July 6. Overflowing with La Dolce Vita, it invites guests to enjoy authentic Italian pinsas, fresh salads, or of course pasta “come dalla nonna” (like grandma’s). In this spacious locale sprawling over 170 square meters, you’re spirited away to 1960s Italy with plenty to please your eyes and palate.

You’ll also find an extensive selection of beauty products in the new Duty Free store opened by Frankfurt Airport Retail GmbH & Co. KG in the non-Schengen transit area of Pier B in Terminal 1. Located right after the security check, it carries more than 30 products from brands including Kiehl’s, Tom Ford, NARS and Gucci, as well as luxury skincare products from La Mer and La Prairie and niche brands like Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Acqua di Parma, Jo Malone, and Creed.

The new Press & Books store in the Airport City Mall carries not only a huge selection of books, newspapers, magazines, and journals but also all important items that you might need for your trip. E-services for your smartphone are available, and the new shop also offers all popular postal, DHL, and Postbank services.

For the time being, store business hours are based on passenger volumes in the various areas used by passengers. A basic supply of food and beverages as well as medications and services like money changing and car rentals is also ensured. For an up-to-date overview, please visit

After checking in, you can relax and shop to your heart’s content. After arriving at the airport, travelers should first proceed to the check-in counter and show all required documents on vaccinations, proof of recovery, or test results, check their luggage, and then keep an eye on how much time is left until their flight departs. The measures currently in force to prevent infections must be observed, including wearing a medical-grade or FFP2 facemask and distancing yourself from others. You may take the mask off to eat or drink.
