Official Spotting Locations
Other Spotting Locations
The platform for the aircraft is located directly to the left of the terminal. This platform offers very nice opportunities for photography (both during the day and after daylight). Just follow the signs to the airport and the platform will turn up. You can park your car on the official parking lots (which are cheap, compared to other airports).
- Terminal building
From the restaurant of the terminal building your view on the platform (and the major part of the airport) is great for photography and reading.
The taxiway right of the terminal building is also a good spot for photography. Just position yourself to your liking on the right of the building.
- East side approach
The approach of runway 27 is pretty good for photography and reading. To get here, turn left after you exit the airport and the approach lights will turn up automatically. You can park your car beside the road opposite of the airport.
- West side approach
The approach of runway 09 can be reached as well and again offers a good spot for photography. To reach this spot, you drive towards Weeze from spot 4 and turn left on the Baaler Strasse at Hees (towards Well and Baal). After about 3 kilometres you can turn left just before the airport fence stops. You can park your car here and walk along the fence. You will find yourself between the fence and a large sand/stone quarry. It is also possible to drive just inside the airport (outer) fence but this road is not always open. Beware: officially this spot is off-limits! (the best way is to go to help desk in terminal and report your self that you like to take some picture's then it is 99,9% ok to go there)
- Take off
The next spot mentioned here is the threshold of runway 09. This spot is OK for take off shots when runway 27 is in use. Due to the distance you will need at least a 300 mm lens. You can reach this spot by walking (or driving) from spot 5 and keep following the fence.
Beware: officially this spot is off-limits!(the best way is to go to help desk in terminal and report your self that you like to take some picture's then it is 99,9% ok to go there)
- North side view
The final spot is in the former RAF shelter area on the northern side of the airport. Standing on top of a bunker you have a great view of the runway and are close to the Northern taxi track. Great spot for photos (but you are facing the sun). To get here, 'enter' the airport from the Baaler Strasse and follow the signs towards Vertical Vision. If you pass their location you can turn right towards former guard towers and position yourself there.
Beware: officially this spot is off-limits! (the best way is to go to help desk in terminal and report your self that you like to take some picture's then it is 99,9% ok to go there)
