Dresden International Airport is an attractive piece of industrial architecture, only 9km (6 miles) from the city centre. Once an aircraft hangar, the building's interior is large and open, and is designed to be accessible and easy to navigate, with the different terminals and facilities all very close together.
Dresden International is a great place for children. The Departures Terminal has two play areas: one before and one after the security and check-in areas. If you're bringing a baby carriage with you, you'll be given another to use in the airport free of charge after you check yours in. Just ask at the oversized baggage counter.
Most travellers agree that Dresden International is well maintained, convenient and perfectly functional – just as airports should be.
