How to experience a Zeppelin NT airship flight in southern Germany / Lake Constance

by european travelblogger Lisa


The Zeppelin NT is THE sight to see in southern Germany at Lake Constance. With its home base in Friedrichshafen, it is no unusual sight and thing to hear when holidaying in the Lake Constance area. A dull whirring sound can be heard as the zeppelin hovers nearby. And then this big flying cigar, mayestically floating in the air, driving even. For a short time you are even in the shade when the zeppelin flies directly above you. Or even just far in the distance on the horizon, seeing a zeppelin is a unique sensation.

Whats is an airship

A rigid airship is a type of airship (or dirigible) in which the envelope is supported by an internal framework rather than by being kept in shape by the pressure of the lifting gas within the envelope, as in blimps (also called pressure airships) and semi-rigid airships. Rigid airships are often commonly called Zeppelins, though this technically refers only to airships built by the Luftschiffbau Zeppelin company.

Do Zeppelin airships still fly today?

Chances are, you have already head about the airship Hindenburg. This massive flying thing which caught fire upon landing in New Jersey after crossing the atlantic. But lucky for you, airships do still fly today. And, its super easy to book a Zeppelin NT flight in southern Germany! Primarily for leisure guests, up to two Zeppelin airships go on multiple daily flights in the Lake Constance area. Covering not only southern Germany, but also Austria, Switzerland and parts (in view) of Liechtenstein.
During certain short periods of times, one Zeppelin is also stationed in other cities. Scenic Flights are then also offered in Munich in Germany as well as in western-german Cities Cologne, Frankfurt or Dusseldorf. Flights usually take 30 , 45, 60 or even 120 minutes. Prices start at 260 Euro per Person.
For special Zeppelin NT experiences, such as becoming a Zeppelin Pilot for a day, or to book a Hangar Tour without a flight, check out “experience the Zeppelin”.

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

This sounds like such an amazing experience! Also, flying a zeppelin is a very traditional thing to do.

Absolutely! Hope you get to enjoy it one day, too!

That is really cool! We call them blimps here in the States. It was very common to see them flying above Stadiums for Football and Baseball games. I haven’t seen one in a very long time. I guess not many of them are used for advertising purposes anymore.
