For those travelling by S-Bahn, please note:

From 15th to 26th July 2024, the S-Bahn line between Stuttgart-Vaihingen and the airport will be closed. Passengers are recommended to inform themselves about the train replacement services and to use the tram U6.

The observation deck offers a unique view across the airport. Experience at first hand the many impressive take-offs and landings and see how the big jets dock with the passenger boarding bridges.

Watch the many steps that all mesh together when it comes to the tasks of loading and unloading, cleaning or refuelling the aircraft or delivering the food and drink. The observation deck offers exciting views for everyone – and in every season, too!

And children will enjoy the mini-airfield and pedal-powered aircraft. The little pilots can find their parking position by following taxiways drawn on the ground and copy the big machines on the apron.
