Redbull Flugtag

July 27 – 28. The sports and entertainment show Red Bull Flugtag offers guests a unique opportunity to see modern-day aeronautics enthusiasts and their creative forms of aircraft in action. Flying tanks, pterodactyls, flying houses, Brezhnev's eyebrows and Boyarsky's mustache — what haven't the participants used to try and fly into the sky? The 6-meter-high flight into the water is measured not only in terms of distance but also the originality of the aircraft's conception and the artistry of the team.
