High Flyer

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s … a High Flyer. The giant winged contraption you may have spotted swooping over the Viktualienmarkt over the past few weeks is the creation of Christian Noll, who wanted to give people a chance to admire Munich from a slightly different point of view. Wannabe birdmen are strapped to the device, and then dangled several meters over the ground from a 20-m-high crane. Rides cost € 10. Definitely an unforgettable experience for the young and old.
