Zeppelin flights - most beautiful way to fly

With the take-off of the first Zeppelin airship on 2 July 1900 a new era started in Friedrichshafen leaving a lasting impact on the town. About a 100 years after the first “flying giants“ the Zeppelin era was continued with the Zeppelin NT cruising over the Lake Constance region since 2001. Today, 13 different routes are on offer with a flight duration between 30 minutes and 2 hours. A view from above, smoothly and gently along the Alps, over towns and cultural landscapes - a unique flight adventure from a bird's eye view. Large panorama windows provide an impressive view from every seat. Enjoy a unique flying experience. Reservation required.
