HERRENTEICH Airport (ICAO: EDEH) is a small airfield in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The airport has only one runway: 4/22. The other closest runways are Hockenheim Airport, Speyer Airfield, Ludwigshafen Airfield, Walldorf Airport and Mannheim-City Airport. Herrenteich Airport does not publish METAR : the nearest weather station is Mannheim-City Airport, which is 14 km away.

Herrenteich airfield is operated by SFC Schwetzingen which accounts for a large part of the flight movements at the site itself. In addition, FSC Mannheim provide activities in skydiving and parachute sports. The airfield is located on the Rhine and is close to Hockenheim, Speyer and Ketsch.

Due to its location on the Rhine, the airfield is usually flooded despite the dams. Drying out after flooding can take several weeks, and no flight operations are possible during this time. On August 3, 2017, a Pilatus PC6 Porter with a pilot and ten parachutists on board collided with a tractor that was standing on the apron. There was considerable damage to property - but no one was injured.

Enjoy your flight over the superb Speyer Bridge!
