It is extremely rare to find a decent airport lounge outside the secured area of an airport, but LuxxLounge Frankfurt is one of them.
Located prior to security area (and German Immigration) in Frankfurt International Airport, LuxxLounge provides a rare comfortable waiting area right before your flight!
Frankfurt Airport is huge – it is one of Europe’s busiest – and you can find a great selection of airport lounges within the two airport terminals.
LuxxLounge is the only one outside the secured area. Here’s our review of the LuxxLounge in FRA Airport.
LuxxLounge Frankfurt Location
Frankfurt Airport LuxxLounge is located in Terminal 1, between Concourses B and C. Lufthansa flights leave from Frankfurt’s Terminal 1.
It is located on the mezzanine level, next to the Airport Reisemarkt (The Airport Travel Market). Don’t be too excited about the travel market, it is just stalls, offices, a travel bureau, and money exchange desks.
If you happen to stay at Sheraton Frankfurt Airport, which is not too far from the hotel’s entrance, this lounge is the perfect place for you.
You can use its facilities, including food and drink, for free.
LuxxLounge Frankfurt Access
Frankfurt LuxxLounge is one of the Priority Pass lounges in Frankfurt International Airport.
When we fly, we always take our Priority Pass to get into over 1,200 lounges at airports around the world (and get discounts at several restaurants!) If you travel, consider getting a Priority Pass Membership and stop paying for drinks and food at the airport!
If you don’t have access to a Priority Pass lounge in Frankfurt, you can purchase a three-hour pass for €30, or a full-day pass for €50.
You can also purchase a reduced price pass for €15 for children ages 2-6.
If you pay the annual fee of €799, you can get in at any time of the year, and you will be able to bring in one guest per day.
You can purchase the pass at the front desk. For more information, check out Frankfurt LuxxLounge official shop page.
LuxxLounge Frankfurt hours are 6:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Checking in to LuxxLounge Frankfurt
Accessing LuxxLounge is simple. You just need to present your airport lounge membership. Since it is outside the secured area, you don’t even have to have a same-day boarding pass.
On that note, if your membership allows you to bring in guests, they can come in with you, even if they are not traveling and don’t have a valid boarding pass!
If your final destination is Frankfurt, you can access LuxxLounge as an arrival lounge. This allows you to have a few refreshments, as well as a comfortable restroom and shower facility before even leaving the airport.
This Priority Pass Lounge in Frankfurt accepted my membership card with no issues.
LuxxLounge Frankfurt Layout
Frankfurt LuxxLounge has a series of rooms to both left and right side of the main desk. Some areas are off limits for certain memberships, such as Priority Pass.
You will be directed to the right side which you can access with Priority Pass (and most other airport lounge memberships).
The left room is a dedicated Private Lounge, which you can reserve for an additional cost of 35.00 €. Ask at the front desk.
Although the size of the private lounge is almost exactly the size of the common lounge area, it is definitely much quieter.
The rooms are dimly lit, giving visitors a calm and subdued lounge feeling. There are no windows or openings to the outside world. My guess is that it could feel a bit cramped at times, especially with the average ceiling heights.
“Can” lights provide the only illumination in the rooms. Dark wood walls and trimmings give it a luxurious interior.
There is plenty of seating, mostly in the form of individual lounge sofas. They are very comfortable! And there high-top tables, along with cafe style.
Food and Drink at the LuxxLounge
Food at LuxxLounge
LuxxLounge doesn’t offer many options on their hot bar, but as in many other German lounges, the German frankfurter, or brätwurst (pork sausages) are available all day long.
You can also find condiments, such as ketchup, mustard and pickles.
Other than that, expect small snacks and cake as food. Don’t expect much food from LuxxLounge.
Drink at LuxxLounge
Coffee and tea are always available. There is an espresso machine as well as a tea selection to choose from. You can also find big jugs for juice, and Coke products (Coke, Coke Light, and Coke Zero Sugar). You’ll find sparkling water bottles inside the cooler below the counter.
Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beer are also available. They have two brands to offer: the Kombacher and Binding Römer Pils.
There is a self-service bar where you can find a few familiar selections of liquors Bacardi Rum, Johnnie Walker and Jim Beam Whiskey, Gordon’s Gin, Martini and Campari.
For Vodka, they serve German Wodka Gorbatschow.
LuxxLounge has two premium wine and champagne display cases inside both the Private Lounge and main lounge areas. You can find the drink menu, as well as the price, on top of the case.
For example, you can purchase Champagne Taittinger Brut Reserve for 44 € (0.75l) or 29 € (0.375l).
Wines, including several choices of Sparkling Schloss Vaux, Red and Wine Piemond selections, range from 18 € to 27 € for 0.75l.
LuxxLounge Frankfurt Amenities
LuxxLounge Frankfurt offers a WiFi network to its costumers with no password required. But you can still use the very fast and reliable Frankfurt Airport Wi-Fi network from inside the lounge.
Sky Lounge Frankfurt has a printer which also serves as a copier. Staff can assist you with your printing questions.
Other than that, you can sit at available work stations with your own laptop, or use their other high table station for your computer.
Electrical outlets in FRA LuxxLounge
There are plenty electrical outlets throughout the lounge area to charge your electronics. They come in the standard European two-prong configuration.
Shower stalls are available inside the Luxxlounge; however, there is an extra charge 5.00 € to use them.
These are small shower stalls, and there is nothing luxurious about them. A a small plastic chair is available inside the shower to lay your belongings while showering.
Things to know about Frankfurt Airport
Frankfurt International Airport is big!
Frankfurt Airport is one of largest and most complicated airports in Europe. There are two terminals with different concourses, and almost every single one of them has Schengen and non-Schengen areas.
Travelers can easily go in the wrong direction, which can complicated your immigration and security experiences.
If you are flying to, or transiting through, Frankfurt Airport, it is worth it to check where you will land, as well as where you will depart.
