New Visitor Center at Berlin Brandenburg Airport

10.07.2012

Today the new Visitor Center at Berlin Brandenburg Airport opened to the general public. The fence around the airport building site has been moved to allow visitors to access the Airport City direct by car. The airport operating areas, the terminal and all buildings that will be inside the future security zone will remain behind the building site perimeter fence.  

Inside the Visitor Center, an exhibition informs visitors about Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The new center also includes a lounge and conference area. Events can be held in the new Visitor Center and can, for instance, be combined with a tour of the airport. The Visitor Center and a range of modern conference suites in a choice of sizes in the new office building can be hired for events.
