Lounge Review: Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf
The Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf is one of the older Lufthansa lounges in Germany. The interior is a little past its prime and the atmosphere isn’t great either. Read why I’m not really a fan of the lounge in our extensive review!
While I generally like Lufthansa lounges very much, my experience in Düsseldorf was rather disappointing. Maybe it was not my lucky day anyway as the Lufthansa Senator Lounge was closed due to renovations.
Yet, I don’t see too big of a difference between Senator and Business lounges anyway. Yet, the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf just lacks atmosphere.
Seating in the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf
After passing the reception desk, you find yourself in a long room. Sadly, this one is everything but inviting and looks sort-of missmatched. There are several different floorings, which do not exactly make the lounge more atmospheric.
In addition, there are no outside views, but much rather strange indoor views. As it’s the norm for Lufthansa lounges, the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf comes with several different seating areas.
There are more comfortable armchairs, high-top tables, dining tables and a few working cubicles. While not bad in theory, the lounge in Düsseldorf comes with the old design.
This does not only mean that the lounge doesn’t look especially fresh, but also that the condition of the armchairs isn’t the best anymore.
Catering in the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf
The buffet usually is the biggest difference between Senator and Business Lounges. In this instance, I didn’t really spot too much of a difference to Senator Lounges at other airports.
However, it’s worth noting that the Senator Lounge was closed, which might have led to better offerings in the Business Lounge. In the evening, there were two hot offerings, which didn’t look too good, but were totally edible.
In addition, there were a couple of cold options including salads and cold cuts. When it comes to the drinks, there is a great choice of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages including spirits and wines alongside a decent coffee machine.
Overall, I’d say the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf is fine to grab a snack, but not the place to have a proper meal.
Entertainment in the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf
All Lufthansa lounges offer great entertainment options. That’s also true for the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf, which comes with a display of several German and a few international newspapers.
Additional magazines are available at reception. Something that makes Lufthansa lounges great when it comes to entertainment is the great Wi-Fi service, which is provided by Deutsche Telekom. The log-in is easy and the speed is amazing.
The Lufthansa Business Lounge in Düsseldorf also comes with a couple of computers and work cubicles, which allow proper working while waiting for your departure.
Bottom line Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf
Overall, I was a little disappointed by the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf. While the entertainment options were great as usual and the food display was okay, I just found the lounge to be rather unatmospheric.
The long room comes with old and worn out furniture, lacks daylight and just doesn’t feel like a place to hang out for longer. However, the Lufthansa Business Lounge Düsseldorf is still a good place to get some work done or grab a snack prior departure.
