Hi,

Taking photos at the Meteo and a bit further at the firebrigade station (near the crossing over the motorway) is not possible anymore due to a second fence.
Taking photos near the VIP terminal is still possible. It is also possible to take pictures at the hill near the two parallel taxiways and at Terminal9 ( which will be called Aerogare 3)

regards,
Marcel

About the best place you can go is the famous spot (see pictures below), near the Hilton Hotel.

When standing in front of terminal 9, you need to go to your left, go through the underpass and make a right. Keep walking till you see the hilton Hotel. (about 15 minutes). Across you will see the Sofitel where many shots have been taken. The best time is in the morning when the sun is in your back.

Hi Marcel,
thanks a lot for that.The hill near the 2 parallel taxiways is where I'll go first(went their last time)How do I get to the other side of the taxiway so the hotel is behind me?Also,where abouts is the VIP terminal and is it reachable on foot and how is it possible to get shots of planes at T9?
Thanks again,Alex

Hi Alex,

This map tells it all
http://www.kerozen.org/cdg/s_cdgspotg.html
To get at the spot where the hotel is in the back (spot 10 on the map) just use the tunnel to get at the other side of the parallel taxiways. Terminal T9 is close to the parallel taxiway spot as well.
The VIP terminal is at spot 7

regards,
Marcel
