Die Welt Balloon

D-ORKA, Berlin HiFlyer, Die Welt balloon model FK 5500 STU, Berlin
HiFlyer or Die Welt (The World) balloon
Wilhelmstraße and Zimmerstraße
Berlin, September 2011

“Right in the center of Berlin our giant balloon rises above Checkpoint Charlie, the Axel-Springer-Building, Sony Center and the Brandenburger Tor, thus offering not only a perfect outlook on historic Berlin, but also intriguingly presenting the new heart of Europe.”

What a world!
But such balloons scare me. What if the tethering cable breaks?
