Like Google's much-hyped California HQ with its communal creativity areas, Lufthansa's HQ includes open areas away from desks, where colleagues from many departments can mingle, have a free cappuccino, chat, and perhaps develop new work relationships and ideas. It's an extremely health place, both socially and environmentally, and despite the fact that the place was full of workers while we were there, it seemed almost empty and pleasantly calm.
Although public visitors are not allowed, you can marvel at the gorgeous building in a couple ways. It's visible in the distance while you're on your plane at FRA, you can drive by on one of the country's busiest autobahns, the A3, which runs right alongside the structure (see how closely here), or you can whoosh past it on an ICE train headed north from Frankfurt's Hauptbahnhof, since the tracks run parallel to the A3. Keep a look out for it on your next trip to Germany, and be sure to blow a kiss over to Lufthansa CEO Wolfgang Mayrhuber for us, hm?
Disclosure: We were guests of Lufthansa while in Germany and that's how we got in here. However, all views expressed here are completely our own.
