A legendary aircraft, a light-flooded hall and a flexible room concept for events from 2 to 1,200 people – these are the main features of the new location at Mönchengladbach Airport.
The team of Event-Hangar Mönchengladbach GmbH was successful in the NRW-EU Objective 2 competition “Erlebnis.NRW” with its aim of presenting one of the last airworthy Ju 52 in the birthplace of its inventor Hugo Junkers as a tourist highlight that attracts attention beyond the region. The Mönchengladbach-based catering and event agency noi! became the new operator of the hangar following a Europe-wide tender process.
A rising number of bookings and top-class events since the opening weekend on 19 and 21 June 2015 are a reflection of the venue’s exceptional appeal. In addition to the Ju 52 HB-HOY of the association “Verein der Freunde historischer Luftfahrzeuge e.V.”, visitors can expect a multimedia exhibition with many interesting exhibits from the life and work of the technology pioneer Hugo Junkers from Rheydt. On selected days, the legendary “Aunty Ju” will take off on sightseeing flights from her new home at MGL Business Airport.
The hangar is open to visitors every last Sunday of the month from noon to 5pm. For more information about the project visit www.junkersinmg.de or see the latest issue of the information brochure.
