Where does the captain sit? How does a Zeppelin fly? And why is it so big? The Zeppelin myth comes alive inside the Zeppelin Museum. The Zeppelin Museum tells the story of airship history as a lively multi-media narrative with over 1500 original objects and historical audio, film and photographic materials. One highlight is the partial reconstruction of LZ 129 Hindenburg. Climbing up the accommodation ladder, you enter the reconstructed original-sized passenger rooms and can experience authentically how travelers must have felt in these innovative flying luxury liners.
The Zeppelin museum, situated in the Bauhaus building of the former harbor railway station, also owns a substantial art collection. A special focus is on artists of Classical Modernism, for example Otto Dix, Max Ackermann or Willi Baumeister. Innovative temporary exhibitions in particular establish a connection to contemporary topics, this year with the temporary exhibition Beyond States. On the limits of statehood, running 05/27 to 11/01/2020: How do we want to live together and what do borders mean in water, on land and in the air?
You can discover the museum right next to the lake either by yourself or by joining one of the many offered tours or workshops. Or let your children discover the museum by themselves with our museum suitcase. Many points in the exhibition are marked with a hand symbol: there, you can find a card with a task about an interesting object, exciting information or simply a lovely picture. The full suitcase is a great memory of a wonderful visit!
