Another highlight is waiting to be discovered in the airport’s outside area: A huge string of pearls made of red and white glass balls is wrapped around the passenger boarding bridge where the A380 wide-body aircraft docks. The balls wrap around the bridge like a bracelet and signal whether it is currently in use or not: The frequency of the lighting changes depending on whether the boarding bridge is not being used, is currently being used or is ready for take-off.
