Good news! Is this official already? The platform was closed after 9/11 & has never been reopened ever since.

I don't think you will be able to reach it with public transportation.
You can reach the Rwy 25 spot with buses departing from the terminals. The bus stop is air base, from there it's a 5-minute walk.
That's a very optimistic estimate for the Rwy 18 platform. I've never tried walking there from terminal 1, but I reckon it takes about an hour.

Does anybody have info or directions on some of the more provincial airports such as Friedrichshafen, Nuremburg, Dresden, & Leipzig?
How about Berlin Schoenfeld & Templehof too?
Photography-wise Leipzig is one the worst airports you can get in Germany. Although the southern runway must be closed now for construction, traffic is still very slow on the northern runway. It's mainly charter & domestic flights. So you get small planes there, but you can't get close to them because the airport area is so vast. (The whole northern section was built at the end of the 1990s.) There is one obervation hill on the north side, which can only be reached by car or bike. They actually charge money to climb this hill—50¢ if I remember correctly. As a reward you can view the runway facing the sun almost all day.
Tempelhof is a fascinating airport located right in the heart of Berlin. It will definitely close in the near future. So get there while you can. There are small planes only (the largest is a 737), but you get closer to the action west & east of the airport. There are morning & evening rushes on weekdays but barely any traffic on the weekend.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
