A nice thing about the third-party airport lounge in Hamburg called simply ”Airport Lounge” is that they have a fridge full with cold Flensburger Pilsener beer, produced in Flensburg in northern Germany, around 160 km from Hamburg and not far from the Danish border. And it is not bad at all.
And the old-style bottles with the traditional flip-top (swing-top) closure are pretty cool as well. You can even buy a small ”beer bag” with three bottles of your choice at the reception to bring home at a cost of 10 euro.
The “Airport Lounge” is the only third-party lounge and pay-in lounge at the airport located airside on the top floor of the transit hall. It is used by a large number of airlines including most airlines from the Skyteam and OneWorld alliances. It is also possible to enter by paying at the reception or by using a number of different credit cards and lounge cards.
