Wernigerode Aviation Museum

The air museum at Wernigerode near Halberstadt was established in 1999 and now displays about 50 planes and helicopters in four hangars. Particularly interesting examples are an Antonov An-2 biplane, a rugged aircraft, capable of landing and taking off in difficult conditions which was mass-produced in the USSR from 1946, and a Dornier Do 27 utility aircraft, which seated up to six people, which was manufactured from 1955, and was the first aircraft to be mass-produced in Germany after the Second World War. There are several fighters from the Cold War period, a de Havilland Venom and a Hawker Hunter from the United Kingdom, an F-86 Starfighter from the United States and several Soviet examples. Visitors can experience a Messerschmidt Me109 simulator, and, as in most air museums, the display of aircraft is backed up by a collection of aero engines.
