German Airports

Germany is a very popular tourism destination and transport into and around the country is easily accessible. There are many international and domestic airports throughout the country so there is no need to spend hours on the road before you can go and explore. Lets have a look at a few of the main airports that you may use on your visit to Germany.

The Munich International Airport can be found about 28km northeast of the city of Munich so transport in and around the city is essential if you are going to get around. Hamburg also has an international airport named after the city it resides in, whereas the Frankfurt-Hahn, a commercial airport, is 130km west of the city of Frankfurt and is in fact closer to the town of Kirchberg, 10km away. Berlin-Schonefeld, is an international airport in Schonefeld, a town in Brandenburg, which caters mainly for international charter flights.

Cologne/Bonn International, one of Germany’s few 24-hour airports, is interestingly located in the Wahner Heide nature reserve so all that is required from you is to step out of the airport and your holiday begins. The Cologne/Bonn airport, the sixth biggest airport in Germany, is 16km northeast of Bonn and 15km southeast of Cologne. In Berlin you can find two international airports, the Berlin International Airport in Tegel and the Tempelhof International Airport just south of Tempelhof-Schoneberg. The Tempelhof International mainly has commuter flights within the country, as the runway cannot support large airliners like the Boeing 747.
