Welt der Luftfahrt at Hannover Airport

Welt der Luftfahrt at Hannover Airport

The „Welt der Luftfahrt“ exhibition at Hannover Airport is a themed world dealing with aviation. Feel the fascination of aviation and learn about the visions of flight pioneers.

The Welt der Luftfahrt at Hannover Airport was evaluated by a certified recorder on 14th September 2015 and awarded the “accessibility verified” certificate by the inspection body, to show that it is partially accessible for those with difficulty walking.

The attraction can now carry this label from November 2015 until October 2018. The exhibition including the viewing terrace and the special exhibition “Just Sky – No Limit” were included in the evaluation.
