  • Very often I visited for the first time come to Friedrichshafen. It's a very interesting Museum. I had no idea it was so big that dirigible. This city always travels in the air was very interesting to see up close the dirigible. Well worth a visit.

  • A great place to learn about the history of the Zepplins. It is a pity that most things were only written in German but it's myth well documented in photographs and objects. Admission is 9 €.

  • A historical place to learn about Graf Zeppelin and his creation of the Zeppelin airships through the ages. See actual displays of the sleeping rooms and dining area of the airship. Plus lots of other displays of tools, souvenirs, models, photos during war time and listen to some tapes Felix Baumgartner's space capsule is here on display till mid October 2016. There is a classic Maybach car to be seen. You can buy some Zeppelin souvenirs at the Souvenir shop located at the entrance. There is also a Zeppelin restaurant next to the museum. They also have changing art exhibitions all the time. Lockers are available @ 1€ or 2€ (refundable) for depositing your bags near the washrooms which allow entry only with a paid ticket. Phototaking is allowed without flash.
  • The museum was really well structured, the information available was interesting and effective. The guide made it all better, with top notch explanations, anecdotes and fun facts, in a funny and engaging manner, by no means basic or trivial. The souvenir shop had a lot of quality gift ideas.
  • I would have expected more. Highlight: inner cabins in miniature and real size examples
  • Excellent show of the perfect GERMAN Engineering in aviation and industry.
  • I did not know the Zeppelin was a German Invention... Amazing Museum and the ticket was definitly worth its price.
