Narrative:
The Boeing 737-800 made an evasive manoeuvre to avoid an unknown glider. The aircraft had been cleared to descend from 7000 to 6000 feet in preparation for the approach to the destination Nürnberg, Germany.
There was not TCAS warning as the transponder of the glider had apparently been turned off.
The pilot of the 737 estimated the separation to be 100-150 meters horizontal and ca. 150-200 feet vertical.
