Hi-Flyer Berlin

Easily take off again and explore the capital city from above.

In Berlin you can actually float into the air and no one thinks it’s foul, since it involves a ride on the Hi-Flyer. Filled with 5,500 cubic meters of helium, this balloon has a large, walkable gondola underneath it. The balloon is attached to the ground by a steel cable and ideal weather conditions, rises as high as 150 meters. From there you have a wonderful view over the city and one is surprised by the lack of strong winds at this height.

Compared to the TV tower, you are 50 meters lower, but there is no glass between you and the sky. A really great experience. The journey takes about 15 minutes. The whole thing can also be combined beautifully with the Trabi Safari (German), which is right next to the Hi-Flyer.
