Good and clean restaurant with tasty menu, offering salads, steaks and various German specialties
Great and uncomplicated airfield but with worn taxiways and apron (ex-military airbase). Good to visit Wiesbaden, Mainz and the Rhine wine region.
Uncomplicated IFR pickup upon departure if Frankfurt 25 runways are in use. Although no clearance can be obtained on the ground and departures do need to be officially in VMC, AFIS notify Langen Radar of the departure and pass on the squawk code obtained from Langen Radar. If Frankfurt 25 runways in use, one normally gets an immediate IFR pickup and climb. If Frankfurt 07 runways are in use, then Langen will provide advisory vectors but will not be able to give an immediate climb as traffic on to ILS approaches to Frankfurt 07 runways are only about 1000 ft above the base of controlled airspace and go straight over EDFZ.
