Visit the Wasserkuppe airfield and the “mountain of aviators” in the middle of Germany!
The flying school is located in the air sports center. Here you can find out how the training from “pedestrian” to glider pilot works in the Fliegerschule Wasserkuppe.
Or stop at the airfield restaurant-café “Weltensegler”. From the roof terrace you have a clear view of the take-offs and landings on the airfield.
However, the Wasserkuppe is not only known and popular as the “Mountain of Aviators”: Today it is considered one of the most popular excursion and holiday destinations in the Rhön UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. For the whole family and in every season!
The Wasserkuppe airfield (ICAO mark: EDER) is Germany's highest airfield at around 920 meters above sea level.
