Visited this place for a business conference. The facilities were acceptable, although showing a lot of signs of old age
The staff were efficient and friendly

A very large building looking out over the lake. There is a statue of Graf Zeppelin at the front. Great views from this house

If someone is interested in the specific history then this is the place for you. Otherwise, go to the museum in the center of town.

First of all:
Do not confuse the “Graf Zeppelin Haus” with the “Zeppelin Museum”! These two buildings are one kilometre apart from each other. Many people in the English section of TA obviously thought that they are one and the same…well, they are not. This review is about the concert hall (Conference & Convention Center).

There are many places around Lake Constance that are named after Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin, probably the most famous person born in this region. It was therefore no surprise that they named another venue after him. It was opened in 1985 and serves as a concert hall, community centre, cultural temple, and conference centre.

The Graf Zeppelin Haus (sometimes abbreviated as “GZH”) is located on the shores of Lake Constance and is part of the lakeside promenade. Next to it is the marina and the city centre can be reached within a 10 minute stroll. The nearby Schulmuseum (School Museum), is only a one minute walk from here, in case you plan to visit this as well.

The main hall can be changed in size and shape and host up to 1400 people during concerts and opera performances.

It was designed to create only a minor change to the Friedrichshafen skyline and looks much bigger from the inside as one would expect when knowing it only from the outside. Despite its relatively young age it is already considered a historical building.

It houses a restaurant with lake view. In good weather conditions you can see Mount Säntis in Switzerland and the part of the Rhine valley near Bregenz in Austria. In the building is an advance booking office for the many events taking place here. Check out their web site for opening times. The ticket sale on the day of the event starts one hour before the scheduled beginning, in case tickets are not sold out, of course.

On the lawns in front of the building is one of the many Count Zeppelin statues you can find in this region.

The Zeppelin Museum is located on the Friedrichshafen Harbour and can be reached by walk from the Railway station. The Museum entrance fee is around 8 Euros, but seems more than worth after your visit as you get learn all about Zeppelins and its incredible history in under 2 hours. There is also a possibility of booking a Zeppelin ride for an exorbitant price if your pocket allows lasting from 30 mins to 2 hours over the Lake Constance.

This is a great place to know everything about Zeppelins in about 2 hours approximately. You can also book a Zeppelin ride across the Bodensee lake for a whooping price. There is a Restaurant serving pretty good Food.

I found the building, in a greyish area - but I am an aficionado of Zeppelins, and found information and details to my hearts desire. I really recommend a visit.

I'm reviewing the restaurant here, not the conference center/theatre.

Whether you're local or a visitor, you're sure of an excellent meal at this lakeside restaurant, especially on sunny days when you can sit outside and enjoy the view across the lake!
The menu is large with something for everyone, from local dishes to more exclusive creations. The ambience is modern and rather exclusive. The service is very good, polite and cheerful.
Naturally, located within the Graf Zeppelin Haus, it's ideal to have dinner here before a concern.

Caught the catamaran from Konstanz to visit the Zeppelin Musem in Frederichshafen, takes about 50 minutes and is well worth the trip. The museum is very well laid out and tells the compelling story of the Hindenburg and its still unanswered question about what caused it to crash with the loss of 36 lives. The museum is also part art gallery.
Allow a couple of hours to wander around the building and dont miss the excellent posters in the gift shop (very reasonably priced).
We intended to go onto the Dornier Musem but were told that it was quite a long bus ride and the buses only ran once an hour………so plan your visit carefully if you want to do both.
