Official Spotting Locations

Spottersweg

The only official Spottersweg (literally Spottersroad) in existence, it runs below the approach to runway 22. A parking has been created here from where you have an overview of the airport, but the best spot for taking photographs of landing aircraft is probably walking a bit back towards the terminal into the dead-end road which runs towards a gate.


Terminal

On top of the new terminal an observation deck has been created, but with high glass walls.


Other Spotting Locations

Long Term Car Park

Walk into the long term car park. In the far corner you can stand and have a view over the platform in front of both the aircraft paint fascility nearby and the terminal a bit in the distance. At the other side the cargo apron and the military air base can be seen, albeit with a lot of clutter. The entire parking lot is ringed with fences so bringing a step ladder is advisable.
