Is The FRA Observation Deck Open?

Is the viewing gallery at Frankfurt open? If so, do a lot of people in Germany go spotting like at LHR?

In Arsene we trust!!

Yes, it is open.
It's a little hard to say if there are MANY people spotting. Anyway, you wouldn't find too many on the observation deck, most of the people are at the perimeter of the airport.
You want to ge there?

Afaik, only the observation deck on Terminal 1 is open. Terminal 2 is still closed, I think.

Jetset is right, if you have a car, you don't visit the observation deck for spotting, you'd better go to a small platform near "Cargo City Süd", which offers you a really nice view on Runway 18 (aka "Startbahn West").
