Storm / Weather warning
Due to thunderstorms or severe weather warnings, the balloon must be specially secured in advance. For this reason, the driving operation must be set well before the start of the gusts. The balloon will be secured in a low mooring.
The balloon is approved in accordance with the basics of the European Aviation Safety Agency by the number FK-5500 / STU. The maintenance rhythms shall be guaranteed in a procedure approved by the Federal Aviation Authority. During the temporal control of the jack, gondola and enclosure, the balloon remains on the ground.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in the gondola of the “Welt”balloon. Our balloon is in operation as long as the weather conditions permit. A spectacular view awaits you in the middle of the German capital. It is the most exiting platform in Berlin.
