Spotting point „The Dune“. An all-metal platform enables visitors of taking photos from „above“ the fence to landing aircraft using RWY07L or RWY 25R and the taxiways. Alongside the fence there are positions for usage of ladders. Ladder-positions are „L“-marked on the aerial photograph and easy to find.
Usage of steps or ladders is no problem, as the ladders are positioned ca. 1,5m or 2m away from the fence.
Car Parking RWY 25R / 07L 50.039326, 8.522219
Disadvantage: Lamp posts, heat distortion possible. Low traffic in noon / afternoon. The Dune can be reached by car, bike or bus. If you have no car, you can take bus line 751 to Darmstadt Mathildenplatz at Terminal 1 and leave it at Tor 26. After 300m turn right, walk over Autobahn bridge and turn right again at the fire department training area. Distance from there to the Dune ca. 200m.
