DISCOVER THE FLYING GIANTS IN THE ZEPPELIN AIR MUSEUM
The Zeppelin airships, called after their creator Ferdinand von Zeppelin, were built in Friedrichshafen and were the first air ships to fly over the waters of Lake Constance.
Today, the fascinating Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen is dedicated to the flying giants. If you wish, you can also book a flight on a modern airship, trips take from a half an hour, to two hours, flying over the entire region.
The museum is on three floors and as soon as you enter the building, you encounter the breath-taking reconstruction of a part of the most famous Zeppelin, the LZ 129 Hindenburg.
Nothing remains of the original gigantic balloon - 245 metres long and almost 47 metres wide - because It caught fire just before landing in New Jersey and literally went up in smoke in 36 seconds!
Don't miss a flight on a Zeppelin modern airship, to enjot the Constance Lake from above
The gondola, i.e. The cabin below the rigid balloon which is half rebuilt using various furnishings, along with the panoramic windows and passenger rooms, give a fairly precise idea of what this prodigy of early 20th century technology looked like.
The rest of the museum is no less impressive, giving an itinerary that covers the entire history of aviation from the Middle Ages to the present day, it displays the world's largest collection on aviation history and technology, with the help of period photographs, documents, original recordings and films.
A fascinating story of brave and tireless men who dared to go beyond the clouds.
