LH Business Lounge access on award ticket?

While on an award Business class ticket, can you get the lounge access? I saw something like non-revenue tickets do not qualify for LH Business lounge, but not sure how it works in reality. Considering non-elite status.

No difference for award tickets and paid tickets for lounge access on LH.

Awesome. Do you know by chance if Business lounge in FRA is better than LUXXELOUNGE (by loungeclub) in Terminal 1?

I would say that it would very much depend on which Business lounge you are going to. The two in Non-Schengen B are really rather nice, the Tower Lounge isn't bad, the Business lounge at A26 can be very horrid at peak times.

Most likely in B, which one is better and how`s the process work-just show them the boarding passes? What kind of refreshments do they have? Food?

To be honest, pick the one nearest your gate, the B Non-Shengens are pretty similar. The boarding passes will get you in. Plenty of things to drink, a reasonable amount of space and I'm told the food situation is better than it was since I moved to the SEN lounges this year. Don't expect a lot of food, but there's certainly nibbles and soup.

If I decide to stay at the airport for my 10 hour layover, I`m sure I`ll have plenty of time to visit all of the lounges Can I do that or is it one time visit t only one business lounge per boarding pass?

I wouldn't recommend staying at FRA for 10 hours, I really wouldn't, not even for 10 hours in my favourite corner of the First Class Lounge and the Business Lounges don't even touch those. Go into Frankfurt city itself or go to Mainz (which is quite lovely) or with 10 hours even further afield. That way you can get some proper food, get some fresh air and see some sights or do some shopping.

However, yes, you can do multiple entries on your boarding passes.

Oh boy...don't do that...even in FCT that is too much...they are only lounges;-) Go to Frankfurt or Mainz as suggested...takes 1/2 hour

I know, I know! But I have never got out of the airport during a layover, so I am a bit confused on how`s Immigration (I have the US passport) works (stamps, security coming back, etc), and how to get to Frankfurt. I found a thorough thread on Mainz though. Can you please describe the process of getting to/from Frankfurt?

You go through immigration and customs and then look for the train station at the airport.

In addition to Frankfurt (big modern commercial city) and Mainz (small historic city on the river), Wiesbaden is nearby, easy, and very relaxing; it's an old spa and casino town with a lovely old casino building set in gardens in the center of town.

I was going to suggest checking the Germany forum but you already seem to have asked questions there.

Yes, I have, but no one provided me with the guidance there, except from make a search, which I did, but found only what I needed about Mainz. Frankfurt is still not clear to me.

OK, how about these?
