Otto Lilienthal is one of the greatest German technology pioneers. His native town Anklam honoured the inventor of the human flight with a museum.


In the museum not only technology and aviation freaks get their money's worth. For example, many modular systems for children from Lego or Fischer-Technik are based on patents from Lilienthal. With the "Kleinmotor System Lilienthal", he made his mark on the history of steam engines. And last but not least, he was one of the first entrepreneurs to introduce a "workers' profit-sharing scheme"; even at the Berlin Volksbühne he was a well-known man. Lilienthal not only provided technical innovations, but also cultural and social ones. He not only implemented technical progress with his airplane, but also pursued the ideas of world air traffic and eternal peace.
