I slept with my suitcase as a pillow, and I got woke up a couple times by a couple surges of arriving passengers. But after midnight it was dead quiet. – Cybrie

FRA Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Frankfurt Airport.

What to Expect

Frankfurt Airport (code: FRA) is massive, and its layout can be confusing. Terminal 1 services Concourses A, B, C and Z, while Terminal 2 hosts Concourses D and E. Passengers can transit between terminals free of charge via SkyLine train or shuttle bus. There are plenty of shops, duty-free outlets, dining and assorted services throughout the airport (see guide below), including some 24-hour eateries. The airport provides free WiFi to help pass the time. Shower facilities are available for a fee in both terminals. Economy class passengers can access a few lounges by purchasing a day pass for additional comfort. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and access information.

Sleeping in Frankfurt Airport

Reviewers rate FRA airport as safe and generally sleep-friendly. However, safety is likely a result of heavy security presence, which may mean being woken up for a passport/ticket check. Seating is a mix of armrests or no armrests. You may need to explore a bit before settling in. There are also reclining lounge-style seats with footrests in rest zones throughout the airport. Terminal 1’s Concourse B appears to be the most popular spot for sleeping, though this may be because Concourses A, C and Z close at night. At least one reviewer cited Terminal 1’s “Movie World” as comfortable. Terminal 2’s landside has been cited as having comfortable armrest-free seating. Cots have been spotted in Terminal C, Airside near Gate C. Staff don’t tell travellers about these, so you may need to ask. Explore our guide to sleeping in Frankfurt Airport or read traveller airport reviews for more tips. If none of this sounds like an experience you would like to have (and you don’t mind paying for privacy and comfort), there is a transit hotel in Terminal 1 that allows international passengers (with at least one Non-Schengen Flight) to check in without leaving the transit area. Three on-site airport hotels are connected to Terminal 1 and several other nearby airport hotels within a quick shuttle ride. See the Airport Hotels section below for more info.

To help us keep this guide up-to-date, you can add or update information or write a review to submit airport tips and photos. You can also visit the airport’s website for current information. For more airport information, continue scrolling down to explore more in our Frankfurt Airport Guide.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
