What you can expect
Soar high over the rolling green valleys, snow-dusted mountain peaks, and castle-dotted lansdscapes around Munich on this scenic, private helicopter flight. A knowledgeable pilot rattles off facts about alpine lakes, storybook castles like Neuschwanstein, and natural features such as Germany's highest peak—Zugspitze.
Make your way to the Jesenwang airfield and settle into the helicopter, grabbing a spot in the back or opting for a front row seat in the copilot's position. Hear the rotors whir to life and then lift off, the ground dropping away as you rise upward and cut a course towards the Bavaria-Starnberg 5 Lakes Region. Gaze down at the dazzling blue waters of Ammersee, Wesslinger See, Woerthsee, Pilsensee, and Starnberger See, and spot the hilltop abbey of Andechs—famed for its brewery.
Loop south in the direction of Neuschwanstein, the picture-perfect palace that served as the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle. Snap photos of the snowy, glacier-blanketed slopes of Zugspitze—rising up 9,718 feet (2,962 metre) above sea level—and the yellow turrets of the lakefront Hohenschwangau Castle.
Cut through Austria towards the lakes of Plansee and Eibsee and the ski resort of Garmisch, and then hover over Lake Walchen and Lake Starnberg. The last portion of your flight takes you over the city of Munich itself, where you can spot landmarks like the grand Rathaus-Glockenspiel in Marienplatz, the verdant English Gardens, the 1972 Olympiaturm, and the stately Nymphenburg Palace before touching down.
