One of the most famous photo motives of the Rhön
Since 1923, the famous flying monument, a bronze eagle on a volcanic basalt chimney, has stood on the western slope of the Wasserkuppe.
It commemorates the fallen airmen of the First World War and was erected by the “Ring der Flieger”.
The striking monument is immortalized on countless postcards, photographs and paintings and is worth a visit at any time of the year.
