Observation Decks In Europe - Still Closed?

Thu Oct 11, 2001 7:27 pm

I know that several (or all) observation decks in Europe were closed directly after the tragic events of September 11th.
Now my question is, which observation decks have been opened again or when do airports plan to reopen them?
I guess FRA is still closed, but what about other airports like AMS, LGW, ZRH or DUS?

Kind Regards,
Daniel

I seriously think I just creamed my pants without any influence from any outside variables.

I don't know as of now, but last week (after 11 sept but before the attack on Afghanistan) Amsterdam Schiphol was closed, but London Gatwick was open.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

In Duesseldorf, only the observation deck on Terminal B is open. New are the secure procedures at the entrance.
The observation deck at the airport train station is still closed.

Thank you all for your kind replies. Does anybody have further information about LHR, FRA or ZRH?

Regards, Daniel

I don't think Zurich ever closed. I had heard AMS was open, but I stand corrected. (A friend told me it was open. Confirmation?)
