Brussels Airport has inaugurated two observation platforms for aviation enthusiasts, offering a perfect view of runways 01/19 (in Zaventem) and 07R/25L (in Steenokkerzeel) for landing and taking off.
Dozens of aviation lovers go near the airport each day in order to see different airplanes arriving and taking off. The first platform is located near the transit centre of Steenokkerzeel, where the parking has been enlarged/extended* with several places reserved for the spotters. The second is located along runway 01/19 for landing and taking off in the zone of le Vliegbos where Brussels Airport has installed an outdoor playground and information panels about the airport, the types of planes and the observation buildings from this spot. It’s worthwhile going there.
