Functional local airfield with nice café. Fuel Eu 2.73 a litre. Landing Eu 9. Parking Eu 6 a day.

Very helpful flugleiter who found us a hotel then drove us to it after his shift. This was the Hotel Flieger Schule which he suggested and had been top of my list during pre-flight research. This proved to be a very nice mid-price hotel built in the 1930s as a school for Luftwaffe mechanics. It was converted to a hotel after reunification.

In the airfield café, we had a rather good iced coffee with ice-cream.

Also, big thanks to the fire-fighter who not only drove his air compressor to our aeroplane in his van but also used his very flexible fingers to get the inflator onto the valve without removing the spats.
