Brandensteinsebene is a popular destination, not only for pilots. Anyone wanting to discover the Coburg region from a bird's eye view can take off here for sightseeing flights and paragliding. From the "Fliegerklause" beer garden, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the aircraft, runways and hangars, and experience starts and landings up close.
