Frankfurt Airport Amenities

Frankfurt Airport Amenities

My wife and I have a 10 hour layover in Frankfurt. Are there showers airside open to the public (i.e. not in a lounge accessible to specific frequent flyers) and is there comfortable seating in the public areas? Or do we have to pay for lounge access at non-exclusive lounges like the Sky Lounge? Any info would be greatly appreciated. And does anyone have any info on the Sky Lounge at FRA? I have not really been able to find any info on it.

For me a very uncomfortable and crowded airport. Wouldn't know about showers, never looked for them (luckily my layovers were usually short there). Some of the seating worst in public areas...

Thanks, I missed that portion on their website. It seems like there are showers, which will be good.

Have you from anyone or do you have first hand experience using the Sky Lounge? If possible I would rather find out if it's worth the $30-$60 my wife and I will have to spend to enter it, or if there is not much of a difference from sitting in the public area.

The below PDF file should give you all the info you need. Besides the Sky Lounge, there's also a Luxx Lounge available for all travelers and Day Room options at various hotels.

The Sheraton across the rod from the main terminal has both showers (ask about a day room) and good seating.

How did you make out? I've been through Frankfurt several times and based on my experience, if you had a 10 hour layover, the day room is a great option though expensive. I just got a new oorp card that gives me access to the Luxx Lounge of Skyy Lounge and would be interested in hearing which is better. I also have access to United via my USAir club card but I haven't been too impressed with the United Club in Frankfurt. Lufthansa Lounge is decent.....

We just came in on a flight from the U.S. and upon arrival the airline handed us a card that allowed entry into the LUXX narrivals lounge. The lounge is spacious, has some decent food and drink offerings and gives away free Internet. A sign outside offered day passes for 30 Euro. In my opinion much more reasonable than a day room at either the Sheraton or one of the Hiltons.

Free showers are available, always important if you arrived after a long flight.

By the way the lounge is landside.
