or... are dragons still alive?
During a tour through the dragon's cave you can learn more about the story of the dragon in Furth, the “Drachenstich” (Germans oldest folk-festival) and how "Tradinno" was build.
"Tradinno" (Tradition and Innovation) has natural motion sequences, very interesting facial expressions and hurls meter-long bursts of fire from his mouth. Hollywood specialists, space research and leading German robot manufacturer have set the Further dragons to life in a unique collaboration with local firms: a worldwide sensation!
With its enormous dimensions of 4.5 m high, 15.5 m long, 3.8 m wide, 12 m wingspan and a weight of 11 tons, the monster is in the Guinness Book of Records as the “World biggest walking robot”.
This dragon is the star of Germany's oldest festival, the "Further Drachenstich" that every year in August brings thousands of visitors to Furth im Wald!
