Berlin’s lounge in Brandenburg Airport is a nice, new, and shiny space that’s on a different floor, but there’s clear signage to take you to the lounge.
- Business Class travelers on Lufthansa or another Star Alliance Carrier
- United Club Members and Air Canada Worldwide Maple Leaf Club members
- Star Alliance Gold members traveling on a Star Alliance airline (+1 guest), these travelers can use the superior Senator lounge
- American Express Platinum Cardholders on Swiss, Lufthansa, or Austrian
The entrance had clear signage where the lounge was.
Now Lufthansa lounges generally have a business side and a senator side. Star Alliance Gold members have access to the Senator side of the lounge, but in the case of Brandenburg Airport, it wasn’t even built yet, so there was only the Business class lounge for everyone.
Upon having boarding passes scanned, we were let into the lounge. There was a magazine rack first thing that could be seen with some world clocks as well.
The first room had table-like seating around the bar area.
The seating was very fresh and modern, unlike many of Lufthansa’s larger hubs where the lounges are older and dated.
There were also seats facing a window, but as it was pretty early in the morning in the wintertime, it wouldn’t be light outside for at least another hour.
There was a tucked away hidden area that had more seating as well.
Power ports were generally ample throughout the lounge which I value as an important feature of any lounge.
There was a separate room that had additional seating and this was also where all the food was, though we’ll have a closer look at that in a bit.
I quite liked this table-like seating: the seats were pretty comfy, there were power ports for each seat, and views facing the tarmac.
By the buffet section there was another table with more ports and another table further behind that.
Food and Beverages
The first room had a wide section with a couple of different kinds of wines. It was literally 5:53 AM when I took this photo, so there was no chance of me having any this early.
There was also a larger bar table that had other drinks like spirits, beers, and other snack items as well.
The main buffet rooms had non-alcoholic items like teas, coffees, cold drinks, and water.
There were also 2 beers on tap, but it was way too early.
The main lounge room had some chocolates and cookies by the front entrance.
The main buffet had a small, but decent selection of cold items here. I had each of these and they were pretty good.
On another table, there were pretzels.
Towards the end of the long table, there were eggs.
Below were the toppings for the eggs and they were all good addons. We have chili flakes, chives, and Italian seasoning.
There were also baked beans though they didn’t look as appetizing.
There were bathrooms right beside the main breakfast area, and they were fresh and modern as well and clean.
Overall, I think this lounge is fresh, clean, and does the trick for an airport with primarily short-haul and some medium-haul flights. I like the abundance of amenities, though this lounge could do with a few more hot options. Otherwise, I cannot wait for the Senator side to open for Gold members and see what additional features and food that side will have.
