Zeppelin Rides in Germany

Sightseeing flights aboard a real Zeppelin in Germany are offered by the Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei, which operates a Zeppelin NT airship from their base at Friedrichshafen, Germany, the traditional home of zeppelin aviation.

Airship rides of various lengths and routes are offered to the general public around the area of the Bodensee (Lake Constance), and occasionally at other locations in Germany.

The Zeppelin NT is a 246-foot long semi-rigid airship which can accommodate two pilots and up to 12 passengers in a gondola equipped with large sightseeing windows.  The airship is inflated with safe, non-flammable helium and usually cruises at an altitude of about 1,000 feet/300 meters, at a speed of approximately 35-40 mph, or 60-70 km/h.

    Flights in Germany (Bodensee area, near Swiss frontier) will be offered from 30 to 120 minutes flying time. The 30 min tours will cost 200 Euro, the 120 min tours 745 Euro. Take care to book some months before flying because the Zeppelin is often booked out.
