Friedrichshafen Zeppelin museum and Dornier museumFriedrichshafen Zeppelin museum and Dornier museum

Friedrichshafen is famous for zeppelins and aircraft building. Today it is a wealthy industrial city with more than 50,000 inhabitants and the longest promenade on Lake Constance. Its two museums - Zeppelin and Dornier - are both well worth the detour.

The Zeppelin museum

The city of zeppelins

This town is not just another tourist mecca, it is famous as the city of zeppelins. Among its attractions are, for example, the Zeppelin monument, the school museum, the palace church as well as other fascinating museums.

Take a stroll along the lakeside promenade past the Zeppelin museum, the harbour and the many hotels and shops. It's a great walk with fabulous views out across the waters of the Swabian Sea.  

A car ferry links Friedrichshafen with Romanshorn on the Swiss side of the lake. 

Zeppelin museum and
the history of aviation

The Zeppelin museum in Friedrichshafen is the only one of its kind in the world. It houses the world's largest collection of exhibits about the history of aviation.

The Zeppelin collection traces the history and technology of airship travel. Only here can you really experience the dimensions and flair of these "airborne giants". The main attraction is the accessible reconstruction of a 33 metre long section of the LZ 129 Hindenburg. Naturally the life story of Earl Zeppelin himself is not forgotten. With his airships he paved the way for the development of whole new branches of industry.
