What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Please help !
Hi there.
I have been looking at picture of bugs and flies all over the internet for hours and I can’t seem to find anything that looks like the one I found, (see attached) I found it on my living room window in Munster Germany (Mid August). it was about 15 mm in length, with a red-ish colour. I was wondering if you could help identify it for me as I have small children and am worried that they might bite. Thank you.

Hi Mrs Dwyer,
Despite its name and appearance, the Scorpionfly is perfectly harmless.
