    It was built in 1923 in memory of the fallen pilots of the First World War (1914-1918), on the initiative of an association of former front-line aviation associations. According to estimates by the Fuldaer Zeitung reporter, 100,000 people attended the inauguration on August 30, 1923.

    On the Wasserkuppe you have a very good view over the Rhön. History is written on the Wasserkuppe and there is also a gliding school there.

    You should definitely take a look when you are already up on the Wasserkuppe ... you can even "climb" a bit (be careful, of course) and take nice photos

    The flying memorial is located just below the summit on the edge of a meadow and invites you to look at it and (especially for the children) to climb. From here you have a great view and a wonderful distant view of the region.
