Dietrich Mateschitz is one of the wealthiest men in the world. He wasn’t born to wealth but now that he has a fascination for – and a collection of – the most amazing flying and driving machines, he wants to share them so that we can all appreciate them.

This he does in the custom-built Hangar 7 at Salzburg Airport. There are also several bars and a top-class restaurant to enjoy.

Surprisingly, admission is free of charge and there’s even free parking right outside the building.

Most of the exhibits are Formula One racing cars and a variety of aeroplanes and helicopters. There’s even the statos space diving capsule.

And all of this might make you see a connection between these machines … yes that’s right, Red Bull. For Dietrich Mateschitz  made his wealth by the invention of that energy drink and the racing cars at Hangar 7 are from the Red Bull Racing Team* and the aircraft are known as the Flying Bulls*

The restaurant – Ikarus – that’s located in the property had an interesting concept. Always of the highest quality, the menu is developed and changed on a monthly basis as the restaurant has a new guest chef – chosen from the world’s elite – every month. The bars also serve stunning food.

Hangar 7 also features art exhibitions which also are free to enjoy when you visit.

*Note that the racing cars and aircraft displays at the Hangar Museum can change as they are working machines that are often used off-site for demonstrations, shows and exhibitions.
