German Aerospace Exhibition

At a glance

Experience the fascination of space travel and space research. More than 1,000 exhibits bring the history, present and future of space travel closer.

The main focus of what is a unique exhibition in Germany is to demonstrate to the general public the benefits of pursuing research projects in space. The exhibition covers a wide spectrum encompassing the initial man-made satellites orbiting round the earth, the first Soviets and Americans in space, the moon landing programme, satellites and probes and the space stations from the early days to the new International Space Station. The section about manned space flight mainly documents flights by German astronauts and cosmonauts. Particular emphasis is given to the flight made by the first German cosmonaut, Dr. Sigmund Jähn, who comes from Morgenröthe-Rautenkranz. Almost every German and many Russian and American cosmonauts and astronauts have played their part in making this exhibition very special because they have donated personal gifts from their missions.

The training module for the base unit of the MIR space station provides a vivid impression of life aboard.
