German explorer, geographer and ethnologist. His journeys led him to Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Central America.
Helbig's works are characterized by keen observation, instructive content, and clear, comprehensible language. In addition to his scientific work on geography and ethnography he wrote popular travelogues, youth books and adventure novels, in which he presented his experiences to a broader public in a haunting and entertaining way. The same applies to his lectures held at home and abroad in schools and scientific institutes.
Helbig was awarded the Federal Service Cross and the State Prize for Science of the State of Mexico.
He died 9 October 1991.
