The story behind the image

You certainly know the Zeppelin brand for its magnificient, large airships (and for the tragedy around the airship Hindenburg which went up in flames upon arrival in New York in 1937.)

We were excited to get to know everything about airships when we entered the main hall of the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Probably the most stunning experience is entering the large airship of the Hindenburg just like you would have done in 1936, using steel stairs that emerge from its huge body. Once inside, you will walk in the aisles and see the original replicas of the lounges and cabins, designed in trend colors using steel frame furniture. You can read more about the design in this inspiring blog post (in German.)

Of course, you’ll get to learn everything about airships and their technology.

So, when you are in the area, we suggest considering a visit of the museum. It’s like a trip back in time that takes you to an age where airships were the most comfortable and fastest way of traveling long distances.
