The Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen opened in 1996 and houses the world's largest collection on the history and technology of airship travel.
The museum is located inside the former harbour train station (Bahnhof Friedrichshafen Hafen). The building was designed by Karl Hagenmayer and built between 1929 and 1933.
The museum contains a true to the original reconstruction of a part of the zeppelin LZ 129 "Hindenburg" which caught fire and crashed in 1937 in Lakehurst.
The promenade deck as well as the passenger cabins were in the Bauhaus design of the 1930s.
The art collection presents the greatest masters of southern Germany from the Middle Ages to modern times.
