Das “Museo Aero Solar” zu Gast bei den Aeronauten

Bringt alle eure alten Plastiktüten mit!!!

Ab 11:00 Uhr kann jeder mit Hilfe der Aeronauten aus den mitgebrachten Plastiktüten eine Fläche gestalten. Diese werden nach und nach zu größeren Flächen zusammengestellt. Einzelne Flächen können auch schon im Vorfeld gebaut und mitgebracht werden. Anschließend werden diese an das bestehende museo aero solar angesetzt und bis 15:00 Uhr die letzten Löcher geflickt. Ab 15:00 Uhr werden wir den Ballon aufblasen. Durch einen Zugang ist es möglich in unseren Ballon hinein zu gehen und in zu bewundern.

From the main train station (frankfurt hauptbahnhof), you’ll need to take any “S-Train”
going to the stop called “hauptwache”. it is only two stops away.
From hauptwache, take the “U-train” (underground) U2, direction “bad homburg/gonzenheim”
Your stop is called “kalbach” (takes about 20 minutes to get there).
At kalbach, exit the platform and walk in the opposite direction of the train.
I’s about a five minutes walk to the aeronauten werkstatt (see the map below)
