It depends very much on the airport. As I know at Zurich airport an hour for a European economy class flight is enough. At LHR or FRA you probably need more.

this is quite different... in FRA almost every airline have a deadline of 30 (some have 45) minutes prior do departure, but sometimes this time is too less because of the long ways to the gates and the double-security checks...

You don't say which airline you are flying with. Since I believe you are flying KLM, this is from their website:

Quote:
Important: Due to possible waiting times we recommend that you arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to departure.

There are further options here:
