Sky Lounge Frankfurt Location

This is sometimes a problem limited Schengen visa holders.

Checking in to Sky Lounge Frankfurt
Accessing this lounge is as simple as presenting your airport lounge membership and a same-day boarding pass.
The staff was helpful when I checked in. Not so much with cheerfulness though! I was the first guest to check in at 6:15 a.m., so I didn’t expect cheery people anyway. It’s too early for this!
This Priority Pass Lounge in Frankfurt accepted my membership card with no issues.
Sky Lounge Frankfurt Layout
The main lounge area has an open design concept with a few partition walls to create smaller areas. Big windows allow natural lights to come into the lounge.
We wish it had better view to the outside though, instead of the SkyTrain platform and a busy highway in the distance.
But still, it was nice to have natural light.
As you can see, there are many different seating configurations and comfy sofas to suit your needs.
There are so many seats available, and it would be hard to imagine not to get your own spot when you’re visiting the Frankfurt Sky Lounge, even in a busy day.
The official lounge capacity is 70 people.
Food and Drink at the Frankfurt Sky Lounge
I visited the Sky Lounge in the early morning, so it was breakfast during my stay.
The Sky Lounge in Frankfurt opens at 6:15 a.m.
Although there’s not much of a hot food breakfast selection at this lounge this early, I was surprised to find many other options in Sky Lounge.
A continental breakfast is available until 10 a.m. After 10, the Sky Lounge menu includes hot German sausage and hot soup daily for lunch and dinner.
During my breakfast visit, however, I found hot sausages inside the hot pot jar.
You can grab a hotdog bun + condiments and help yourself.
Regular breakfast food, such as yogurt, fresh fruit, and certain cereals are available.
Hot and Cold Drinks at Sky Lounge
Sky Lounge in Frankfurt has a self-serve bar and beer cooler.
Anything from Baileys, Jack Daniels, Aperol, and Martini mis is available.
You can find a selection of the German beer, Krombacher, inside the cooler. They also have Pilsener, Weizen (Wheat beer), and even alcohol-free beers. The local Frankfurter Apfelwein, or applewine, is also available.
As a good resident of Atlanta, Georgia, I was happy to find a soda fountain with Coca-Cola products and sparkling water as an option.
It is worth mentioning that the Sky Lounge Frankfurt coffee machine makes an excellent Latte Macchiato with the milk foam and coffee layered to perfection.
Use the real glass, not cups, for this wonderful coffee.
I love how they very neatly label their tea selections.
Sky Lounge Frankfurt Amenities
Here are some of the amenities available inside the Frankfurt Sky Lounge.
Sky Lounge Frankfurt doesn’t offer a Wi-Fi network to its costumers; however, that’s not really a problem. You can still use the Frankfurt Airport Wi-Fi network from inside the lounge. I
t is free, reliable, and fast, and covers the whole airport.
Showers in Frankfurt Airport Sky Lounge
Shower stalls are available inside the Sky Lounge FRA; however, there is an extra charge 8.00 € to use them. No exceptions.
You will get towels and a toiletries kit after purchasing your shower pass from the front desk.
Sky Lounge Frankfurt has two computers and a printer. Staff can assist you with your basic printing questions.
Other than that, you can sit down in available work stations with your own laptop, or use their other high table station for your computer.
I thought this was pretty cool. They have game boards in this lounge and it’s the first time I’ve seen this!
If you want to kill some time, just ask the attendant and check out your favorite game.
One of the nicer touches people will appreciate is the designated quiet area towards the back of the lounge. It has large recliners where you can take a nap.
There are plenty of outlet inside the room to charge your electronics.
Unfortunately, the light here is as bright as it is in the main area. It would be nice if they could dim the room for a perfect power-nap!
Electrical outlets in FRA Sky Lounge
There are plenty electrical outlets throughout the lounge area to charge your electronics. They come in the standard European two-prong outlets.
Magazines and newspapers
Sky Lounge Frankfurt offers complimentary newspapers and magazines. Some of the options include Cosmopolitan, GQ, Die Welt, and Frankfurter Allgemeine.
There are also Korean publications and English ones like USA Today.
You’ll find them in the main lounge area.
