This is where the idea of the Zeppelin was born, this is where the Zeppelin NT was created - Friedrichshafen as a location of state-of-the-art technology and starting point for the highlight of your vacation at the Bodensee - a sightseeing flight with the Zeppelin NT. Experience sights and destinations from an exclusive and unique perspective - unforgettable moments guaranteed.
Since the fall of 1988, Friedrichshafen has been considering the rebirth of the Zeppelin myth. After feasibility studies, research and development, the Zeppelin NT finally took to the skies for its maiden flight from the anchor mast in front of Exhibition Hall 10 in Friedrichshafen on September 18, 1997. With the type certification of the Zeppelin NT by the German Federal Aviation Authority in April 2001 and the approval of the German Zeppelin Shipping Company in August 2001, commercial flight operations began in Friedrichshafen. To this day, the Zeppelin is still present and can be experienced here - on the grounds of Bodensee Airport, visible from afar through one of the largest hangars in southern Germany, the Zeppelin Hangar.
Our tip: Combine your Zeppelin flight with a visit to our restaurant at the hangar - from the terrace you can watch the Zeppelin NT take off and land and enjoy a gastronomic treat.
