After a few nice nights in Dusseldorf, it was time to fly Condor’s A321 business class to Athens. While I’ll review the flight and general airport chaos in the next installment, in this post I wanted to review the Hugo Junkers Lounge (named after the German aircraft engineer), which is the Priority Pass location we visited during our time at the airport.
Hugo Junkers Lounge Dusseldorf (DUS) location & hours
The Hugo Junkers Lounge is located airside in Terminal B of Dusseldorf Airprot. Once you clear security, just turn right and take the stairs or elevator up a level, to the second floor.
Once on the second level you’ll see the entrance to the Hugo Junkers Lounge right there.
While this lounge is located in the Schengen area, you can also access it if traveling from non-Schengen gates. Just leave enough time to go through passport control.
The Hugo Junkers Lounge is open daily from 5:15AM until 9PM. We arrived at the lounge right as it opened, as we had a 6:20AM flight, so we didn’t have much time there.
Hugo Junkers Lounge Dusseldorf (DUS) entry requirements
The Hugo Junkers Lounge is primarily a contract lounge, so it’s open to Priority Pass members (there are lots of premium credit cards offering Priority Pass memberships).
Airlines departing from the terminal that offer lounge access to their passengers will send travelers here, so if you’re in business class or an elite member, you can expect you might receive an invitation to this lounge.
Lounge access can also be purchased for a fee of 28 Euro per person.
Hugo Junkers Lounge Dusseldorf (DUS) seating & layout
The Hugo Junkers Lounge is around 800 square meters (~8,600 square feet), and it’s spread across two floors. During our brief visit everyone was using the first floor of the lounge, as it seemed most people didn’t realize there was even a second floor. The two levels also have very different decor.
The first floor has lots of dark tones, with furniture you’d almost expect to see in a cigar bar. The first floor largely has seats in rows facing one another, plus some dining tables with more chairs. There are also a few booths with high-top seating, as well as some communal tables.
The lounge has (nearly) floor to ceiling windows with great views of the apron.
The second floor of the lounge is much more modern, and arguably a bit more cheery, based on the lighter colors. There’s one main room upstairs, with communal high-top seating, as well as a long bench with dining tables. There’s also some cool airplane art here.
There are a few smaller sitting areas around that main room, and there are drapes of sorts that provide a bit of separation between zones.
Hugo Junkers Lounge Dusseldorf (DUS) food & drinks
The Hugo Junkers Lounge has a self-serve food & drink selection on both the first and second floor. As you’d expect from a contract lounge, there’s no chateaubriand or top shelf liquor.
The main buffet was on the first floor, and during our early morning visit included a coffee machine, soft drinks, juice, and water. As far as food goes, there was cereal, cold cuts, cheese, veggies, bread, and croissants. There was no hot food at the time, but maybe that’s served later in the morning, as there was a heating plate.
The second floor had a similar drink selection, but a more limited (though different) food selection. This included hardboiled eggs, veggies, snack mix, and cookies.
Hugo Junkers Lounge Dusseldorf (DUS) bathrooms & showers
The Hugo Junkers Lounge has bathrooms on both the first and second floor, and they were pretty basic.
There are also shower rooms, though I didn’t have a chance to check them out during my very brief visit (they were locked, so I couldn’t just peek in).
The Hugo Junkers Lounge Dusseldorf is a pretty solid Priority Pass lounge, as it’s quite large, and has two levels with very different designs. The lounge also has lots of natural light with great apron views. As an avgeek, I also appreciate the lounge’s name, plus the aviation themed art.
The food and drink selection isn’t terribly exciting, but that’s kind of what I’d expect from a contract lounge accessible with Priority Pass. Still, this isn’t a bad place to kill some time.
If you’ve visited the Hugo Junkers Lounge, what was your experience like?
