The Berlin Hi-Flyer in the BallonGarden at Checkpoint Charlie is one of the largest helium balloons in the world. You ascend without a sound in a gondola into the sky above Berlin. You feel as though you are floating freely, and yet, you are connected to the ground with a steel rope. An electric motor gently brings you back to the ground.

While you are ascending, the pilot will provide you with much interesting information about Berlin. Once you arrive at the top, you will have a view across the entire city and the best view from 450 feet to the former location of Berlin Wall between Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie!

Information: Max. ascent: 150 m
Max. number of passengers: 30 Passengers
Ride operation year-around
