The Visitors’ Terrace Is Reopening!

It’s been a long wait – but we’re now happy to announce that part of our Visitors’ Terrace has been open for you, while work to renovate the rest continues.

In a first step, the Visitors’ Terrace has already been renovated and provided with new flooring on an area of about 700 square meters. The entrance and welcome area have also been completely redesigned and given a more modern, brighter look.

The second modernization phase is currently underway; new flooring is being laid on another 1,800 square meters and new, attractive seating installed. Thanks to a tall see-through viewing panel and a protective wall with barred overhang, there will no longer be a need for visitors to pass a security check. This will speed up the admission process and create an even more pleasant experience.

We apologize for the constraints imposed by the construction work.

You can access the Visitors’ Terrace from the redesigned Food Plaza in Terminal 2, which features Europe’s largest McDonald's Restaurant and McDonald's Playland.
