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.
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 and the palace church, as well as various 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.
