Friedrichshafen, second largest city on Lake Constance to Konstanz, is a center town on the northern shore of the lake. Founded in 1811, Friedrichshafen is named after the first Wuerttemberg King Friedrich I. Since then it has risen to become one of Baden Württemberg's best known trade fair and university cities and inseparably connected with the aviation industry (Zeppelinbau), which is why it bears the nickname "Zeppelinstadt".
Friedrichshafen, popular with tourists and business travelers, offers almost 60 accommodations in all budget classes. Particularly sought after guests are the hotels near the harbor or the large-scale promenade. Numerous restaurants and bars invite you to linger and offer a fantastic view of the famous "Friedrichshafener Sonnenuntergang".
Zeppelinstadt, the name of Friedrichshafen's well-known name, here Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin built his first airships, as well as plenty of history around the aviation still offers many other tourist and cultural highlights. So worth a visit to the castle church with its 55m high domed towers as well as a trip to the Friedrichshafener promenade, which is one of the most beautiful of Lake Constance.
As a special highlight, how should it be different, a 30-minute round trip over the city or the Bodenseeregion in a Zeppelin counts. These flights offered by the German Zeppelin Reederei GmbH from 30min to 2 hours, offer the guests heavy and silent hovering, an incomparable view of Lake Constance, as well as all neighboring cities and municipalities and the fantastic feeling of ease and freedom!
