Discover the Zeppelin Museum as a place of innovations

The Zeppelin Museum brings to life innovations in technology and art. It inspires people to dare the seemingly impossible and actively shape the future as pioneers of art, crafts or industry.

The Zeppelin Museum, which owes its name to the airships developed by Graf Zeppelin in Friedrichshafen at Lake Constance, is a museum dedicated to innovative processes in technology, art and society.

 

Airship Collection

It houses two collections. The first is the world's largest collection on airships and the innovation of "lighter than air".

The highlight of this section is the walk-in partial reconstruction of LZ 129 Hindenburg. The museum is gradually expanding the collection to include technically innovative products originating in Friedrichshafen that have gained worldwide significance.

Technique Collection

Art Collection

On the other hand, the Zeppelin Museum houses an art collection with works of innovative workshops from the Middle Ages and the Baroque period which exported beyond Austria to Italy and Hungary.

During the Third Reich, Lake Constance became a refuge for leading avant-garde artists such as Otto Dix, Max Ackermann, Erich Heckel and Willi Baumeister. These artists form another focal point of the art collection.

The museum is gradually expanding the Art Collection to include innovative and technology-oriented positions in contemporary art.

Art Collection

The Zeppelin Museum understands itself as an interdisciplinary institution covering both technology and art.

With its exhibitions and accompanying events, it builds a bridge between the humanities and the natural sciences. On an interdisciplinary level, current research and education are combined in lectures, symposia and conferences to create a solid basis for the innovative power of future generations.
