    The DSM is equipped with beautiful glider pilots. Otto Lilienthal until the 80s. Also z.b. The "crane" or "Hawk" are very nicely done and have slightly bent wings which looks very elegant. Also the other planes have an infinite charm. On the Wasserkuppe a must!

    The Wasserkuppe highest mountain of Hesse is strongly connected with gliding. Thus there is also a gliding Museum. It is interesting, and gives an insight into the first beginnings of sail flight. It's not just for bad days. There are also several localities on the Wasserkuppe. There are also the weather observed the glider pilots.

    The Museum belongs to a visit to the Wasserkuppe in any case. What is available and documented a piece of history is absolutely worth a visit even for "Non-flyers". And then you out can go and see many of the vintage cars directly at the airfield again.

  • Largest glider museum in Europe. They cover the whole history of unpowered flight starting with Otto Lilienthal, mostly focussing on the history of unpowered flight on the Wasserkuppe mountain. Lots of gliders, from old to very current to admire.
  • An outstanding museum of early flight. You don't need to be an aviator to appreciate it. Wasserkuppe is off the beaten track for most tourists but it is well worth the drive. Be sure to visit Peterschens Restaurant while on the mountain. The scenery from the mountain alone is worth your while.
  • Very interesting

  • Since it exists, I'm all for years time on the Wasserkuppe and gliding Museum 2-3. Now, I was once again since Christmas and was very surprised. I find it's always impressive as it changed, enlarged and is always perfect and sorted! I think I will add a few photos from my last visit in Picasa! It says more than many words! Continued success!
