Otto Lilienthal. Flying like a bird.

The dream of flying is as old as humanity itself – and Otto Lilienthal was the first person to fulfil this dream. Using a hang-glider he had built himself, the aviation pioneer was able to fly a distance of 250 metres. His successful flying attempts in the late 19th century led – a mere ten years later – to the realisation of engine-powered flight by the Wright brothers. The Otto Lilienthal Museum in the aviator's birthplace of Anklam presents eight replicas of his first flying machines. It is also home to a hands-on experiment zone and the Dream of Flight exhibition, which features all manner of inspired aircraft.
