Hugo Junkers Hangar

Hugo Junkers Hangar

A technology pioneer, a legendary aeroplane, a multi-purpose event space that is bathed in light, and attractive reception and event rooms together with extensive outdoor areas alongside the taxiway, not to mention great accessibility … these are just some of the highlights that make the Hugo Junkers Hangar a really special venue. The main attraction is the legendary JU 52, registration “HB-HOY”, which is maintained with real dedication and enthusiasm by the members of the Verein der Freunde historischer Luftfahrzeuge (Friends of Historic Aircraft club) as one of only a handful of remaining airworthy Junkers aircraft.

This is a magnet for visitors from far and wide who are interested in aviation, air travel, and technology. And the plane is in working order! Nicknamed “Tante Ju” or “Aunty Junckers”, it regularly takes off on sightseeing flights from Mönchengladbach airport. However, the Hugo Junkers Hangar is not only about the JU 52, the other main theme is Hugo Junkers, a technology pioneer who defined the history of technology with his innovative inventions. Mementos of his creativity and work include regularly changing displays of exhibits in the reception and events building.
