A piece of Bavaria is coming to Frankfurt Airport! This year again, the spirit of Germany’s best-known popular festival will also come alive in the shops and restaurants of the departure areas for passengers from around the world to enjoy. The marketplaces are decked out in traditional white-and-blue, offering travelers lots of promotions, activities, and offers attuned to the occasion.
Frankfurt Airport is about to gain yet another culinary highlight: “Best Worscht in Town”, a German fast food chain that has achieved cult status, is opening its first airport restaurant. From humble beginnings as a family-run sausage stand that opened in Frankfurt in 1970, it has blossomed into an international franchise.
Fiddlesticks! The family has just settled into their seats in the plane and are full of excitement about their holiday. When suddenly the youngest child cries, “my teddy bear is gone!” Now what? It’s a shame that she’ll have to do without her favorite cuddly animal during the trip. But it would at least be great to know that it will be in safe hands in Frankfurt Airport’s lost & found office until they return―it would be a huge relief, in fact.
Frankfurt Airport’s newly introduced Infogate service provides passenger information with a unique twist. Questions are answered directly via video call. After pushing a button, an airport employee who is ready and willing to help appears promptly on the full-sized screen.
Passengers, employees and visitors of the Muslim faith now have another place to pray and worship at Frankfurt Airport. On February 1, a new Muslim prayer room opened in the public area of Terminal 2. The multi-functional space has a foyer with a storage facility for shoes and coats. The prayer room itself is at the rear and constitutes a quiet area for Muslim prayer. A curtain divides the space in two so that men and women can pray separately. In the entrance area, separate washrooms for men and women are available for ritual washing.
Those who travel to the airport by car know to appreciate a reserved parking space. This applies in particular to drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) who need their car to be charged up when they return from a vacation or business trip. Thanks to Frankfurt Airport’s new "eParking" product, an advance booking function is now also available for electric vehicle parking. The offer includes a reserved EV parking space, plus free battery charging.
