The first platform can be found at the terminal. It offers view over the terminal area and planes taxiing. When planes come in from the west you can see the planes line up on the nearby runway, and land at the far runway. A nice aviation store can be found just outside the platform.
+
Dusseldorf International has 2 premium box-seats to watch the show of aircraft traffic at Dusseldorf International Airport. You can experience the airport activity live from the terminal, from the railway station or both!

From the observation deck on the roof of the new concourse B you can watch the air traffic on the apron and the aircraft dispatch procedures. You get to the observation platform from the third floor of the terminal.

The second platform can be found at the long distance train station (not to be mistaken with the local train station in the terminal!). Here you are just as close by to the planes, but there is no clutter at all. Therefor this place is preferable. When planes come in from the east they land on the far away runway, and take-off from the nearby runway. Lining up is very close by as well.

Just one ticket gives you admission to both observation decks. Because the rail station and terminal are quite far apart, the airport recommends using the Sky Train service to get from one ovbservation terrace to the other. The ticket for the observation deck is also your ticket for the Sky Train.
