The CityThe guide was updated:Friedrichshafen, which started as a small settlement back in the 5th Century, has emerged as one of Germany’s premier holiday destinations. Nestled alongside the Northern shore of Lake Constance, and set against the backdrop of the magnificent Alps, this thriving city is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy nature. However, it has much more to show off: painstakingly rebuilt after its near complete destruction in the Second World War, Friedrichshafen has made history as the birthplace of the Zeppelin aircraft. Visit the city’s renowned Zeppelin museum or embark on an exciting voyage on board of a real Zeppelin ship to experience Friedrichshafen’s history.
