Lufthansa has more than 10 lounges at its hub in Frankfurt Airport. This review covers its lounge near gate B24 in Terminal 1 (non-Schengen area), which is close to the Condor boarding gates for the Condor Business Class flight departing to the Seychelles.
The lounge is located up a spiral staircase, one floor above the terminal’s main concourse. Boarding passes are checked by a security point below the staircase. The lounge itself is quite large and has the size of a donut: the food stations are placed at the center of the donut while the seating areas make up the outside of the donut. Although the lounge has large floor-to-ceiling windows, it does not have a view to speak of since there is a large corridor between the windows and the tarmac. With its soft and relaxing colors, the decor has a corporate, contemporary look, featuring a combination of designer seats and more comfortable loungers. The lounge has been built with the business traveler in mind since large portions of the space feature tables with power outlets and small work cubicles.
I visited the lounge in the early evening, and the food offerings were quite decent (see pictures). The buffet offered plenty of cold and hot items, such as salads, sandwiches, broccoli cream soup, and beef stew, to name a few. In addition, some Lufthansa staffers walked through the lounge with trolleys and handed out small bites (e.g., Wiener schnitzels) to guests, a highly appreciated feature. Wine offerings were limited, although there was no shortage of other alcoholic drinks, including German beers.
Interestingly, we have also reviewed Lufthansa’s Business Class on the A350 which is the airline you are most likely to take from this lounge.
