Lufthansa Senator Lounge TXL design
Physically, the Senator Lounge is a long and occasionally narrow room, which seems to stretch forever. For a lounge at a non-hub location, it is surprisingly large, and therefore reasonably quiet, unlike many Senator Lounges worldwide which tend to get crowded. Windows on both sides let plenty of natural light in, with views on the grim concourse on one side and of the airport grounds on the other side.
The design is typical of previous-generation Senator Lounges, which is to say that it focuses on efficiency more than on visual appeal. Ample seating is available, with lamps and power outlets at every seat. Seats towards the back of the room tend to offer additional privacy, but the seating arrangenent is spacious enough throughout. Towards the center of is a dining area with café-style seating, while immediately upon entering is a small business center with six work cubicles.
Lufthansa Senator Lounge TXL amenities
The highlight of the lounge is the extensive food and beverage offering. The buffet features a selection of appetizers, a salad bar, cold and hot entrees, and desserts. In addition, seasonal carts offer cooked to order German specialties. On the drinks front, beer is on tap and the selection includes prosecco. This strong offering puts the Lufthansa Senator Lounge at Berlin Tegel airport in line with Lufthansa‘s clubs at major hubs such as Frankfurt and Munich.
Other amenities include a luminous smoking room with a window; newspapers and magazines, and coat hangers throughout. The bathroom is a lowlight, especially by Lufthansa‘s standards — the facility is pretty tired looking and was hardly clean when we visited. There are no showers at this location.
Lufthansa Senator Lounge TXL bottom line
Overall, the Lufthansa Senator Lounge at Berlin Tegel airport is a haven of comfort and service, away from the ugly concourse and depressing gate areas. While it doesn’t have the panache of the latest Senator Lounges at the Frankfurt and Munich hubs, it offers a spacious place to sit as well as a generous food and beverage selection.
Note that the lounge is located landside, so be sure to allocate time to go through security.
