I love FRA for spotting. Especially the A-gates are great, as you are close to the taxiway and runways are parallel to the A-gates. Terminal 2 has a very nice terrace. What I escpecially love about FRA is the diversity in airlines and aircraft.

And last but not least; they also offer complimentary tea and coffee (airside)

Edit: I never had any problems making photos of aircraft.

Quoting FEDEX35 (Thread starter):

Lots of info on http://www.spotterswiki.com/index.php?title=FRA

Terminal 2 has a very nice terrace.

Entrance fee applies; security check is performed like going airside w/o boarding pass though.
This place in general is facing south, making photography a bit difficult.
Summer sunshine in Germany often comes with decent humidity producing haze in long shots.

Apart from getting to the platform along runway 18, a car is not recommended, as there hardly is any free parking around the airport (certainly not around the terminals).

Not as long as you do not enter any restricted areas or break some other law.
Even the use of airband scanners usually is tolerated.

Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !

I also like the spot in front of the 25 when they come in directly over you.
