Flying across the Atlantic on the airship Hindenburg was the fastest and most luxurious way to travel between Europe and America in the 1930’s.
The passenger areas inside the Hindenburg were spread over two decks, one directly above the other:
The much larger “A Deck” contained promenades, a dining room, a lounge, a writing room, and 25 double-berthed passenger cabins. The interiors were designed by German architect Fritz August Breuhaus (de Groot).
Directly below, “B Deck” contained a bar and a smoking room, a revolutionary concept on a hydrogen-filled airship, and the passenger toilet and shower facilities. The crew areas on B Deck also housed the ship’s kitchen and separate mess rooms for the officers and crew.
