Thanks for the help in advance.
Regarding CDG this permission is availlable from the "Prefecture". A friend of mine has one and he told me itīs neccessary to apply for it and picking it up personally at the local Prefecture (plus paying a service charge obviously).
Itīs probably a bit too much time consuming for only 1-2 days spotting ...
Regarding VIE Iīd suggest you check the local "aviation friends" website. Itīs sort of a spotter club but literally an airport support club - so not limited to spotting.
The website is in German only but if you contact them by email they will certainly give you more details in English.
So, Hereīs the website: flughafenfreunde.at
Just click "Kontakt" and write to the email adress shown ( obmann at flughafenfreunde.at)
For PRG I suggest you check the following website:
