Sleeping inside Düsseldorf Weeze Airport Overnight

The Security checkpoints at Düsseldorf Weeze Airport may close from 12:00 AM – 3:30 AM, though it seems if you’re already inside the terminal before closing time, you are allowed to remain inside the pre-Secure area. Be safe by having a backup plan ready!

Locations & Seating

Airport Sleep GuideThere’s a decent amount of seats and benches that have no armrests, so you can spread out a bit if you arrive early enough to snag one. Depending how many travellers are staying the night, though, there may not be enough to go around. If you’re really planning ahead, bring along a sleeping bag, sleep mat, or something warm and soft for sleeping on the floor.

Rest Zones

At the time of this update, there are no rest zones within the airport.

Temperature

The airport gets cold at night, even in the winter months.   Arrive prepared with a blanket or even a sleeping bag. A hoodie provides extra warmth if the terminal gets even colder.

Lighting

Airport lighting stays on all night, but it may not be too bright to prevent sleeping.  Come prepared with eyeshades or something else to cover your eyes, such as a shirt or towel.

Noise

The airport generally quiets down overnight, with no flights coming or going for a few hours. As a precaution, you should come prepared with earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones.

Pro-tip: If you chose a spot near any eateries, keep in mind that the staff arrive early and they can get pretty loud in the kitchen.

Showers

Unfortunately, there are no showers available to freshen up.

Food & Drink

With no 24-hour food concessions available, stock up on food and water before eateries close for the night. A few vending machines are located throughout the airport.

Security & Safety

Security staff are quite tolerant of airport sleepers, even overnight, as long as you keep to yourself and aren’t disrupting others.

At the time of this update, we have no reports from travellers commenting on safety issues at Düsseldorf Weeze Airport. As a precaution, here are a few tips to ensure you have a safe airport sleeping experience:

  • Know Where Security is Located. Whether you are sleeping in the airport by yourself or with friends, it is good to know where security is. Know where their office is located and look for video cameras in the spot you decide to stay the night. Ask security where it is safe to spend the night. They’ve probably seen many airport sleepers before you and they will direct you to a safe spot.
  • Don’t Seclude Yourself. If you are travelling alone we recommend that you sleep near other travellers. If you are sleeping in the public zone, make sure they are actual travellers and not homeless people – it is sometimes hard to tell in certain airports.
  • Hide Your Valuables. Don’t leave all your mobile devices out in plain view. We have received reports from people who woke up with earphones and no ipod and a laptop bag strap and no laptop bag (or laptop). Same goes with important documents and money. Keep these secure on your body, so that no one can get them without waking you up.
  • Secure Your Bags. If you are a deep sleeper, you may want to padlock your bag to something. If your bags have zippers turn the bag upside down (zippers to the floor) or sleep with your bag up against the wall, so that it would be hard for someone to access.
  • Choose to Stay Alert. If you don’t feel safe, drink coffee and stay awake and be alert. You can always sleep on the plane!

Pro-tip: If you are sleeping in the public zone, don’t be surprised if you receive an early morning wake-up call. Security is known to make the rounds waking people up as travellers begin to arrive for morning flights.
