No really, I bet ZRH, AMS and LHR are fun...

LHR you can use the free shuttle bus.
LTN is completely do-able on foot apart from 1 spot.

AMS has the panorama deck with views of most of the gates. The runways are kind of far away, though. The McDonald's spotters lot/viewing area can be reached by bus, or taking the Ibis hotel shuttle bus, which is free, runs on a regular schedule, and they don't ask whether you're staying at the hotel. Then walk about five minutes to the viewing lot.

London Heathrow is great without a car - I actually had a car last time and it was almost a liability! Parking is expensive and difficult to find!

See my homepage for a comprehensive guide to spotting and photography at HKG

FRA is OK unless you want good photos (into the sun most of the day from the obs deck).
DUS would be a better choice (both terraces)
The hill in MUC can be reached by foot or one stop on the train, but it's too far away for most photos.

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...
