Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen

Friedrichshafen, Germany

The Zeppelin legend becomes alive here.

The Zeppelin Museum inspires people with the idea of daring to do the seemingly impossible and actively shaping the future as pioneers. With over 1,500 original exhibits as well as historical sound, film and image recordings, the Zeppelin Museum tells the story of airship travel in a lively and multimedia way. The highlight is the partial reconstruction of the LZ 129 Hindenburg. Via the drop deck, visitors can climb into the full-size replica passenger areas and experience at first hand how passengers felt in these innovative luxury liners of the skies.
