The Zeppelin Museum

By Linda Tancs

The airship Hindenburg was the largest dirigible ever built. The pride of Germany, it burst into flames upon touching its mooring mast in Lakehurst, New Jersey, killing 36 passengers and crew members on May 6, 1937. The Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen celebrates the development of airships and features a reconstruction of the Hindenburg. Guided tours are available. The museum is located right on the shore on Lake Constance at Friedrichshafen in the former harbor railway station.
