From the visitor's terrace on Dock E you can photograph as follows:

- Take off on RWY 16 (300-400mm lens required)

- All aircraft parked on the northern side of Dock E

- All aircraft parked on the P-parking areas

Notes for Spotters:

- The terrace on Dock E is located north of almost all flight movements, which means all-day backlight. Except for the aircraft parked on the north side of Dock E, which can be photographed in the best light until 5:00 PM an early visit is recommended. For Regi Spotter, the terrace on Dock E is the best choice. Here, the visitor escapes almost no flight movements.

- Photographing is possible without a ladder.

- Catering is available.
