CITY GUIDE BODENSEE: THE ZEPPELIN MUSEUM FRIEDRICHSHAFEN
The only German museum devoted both to art and technology is located in Friedrichshafen. Since 1996, it has enjoyed a lakeside location in what was once the port terminal. Alongside the world’s largest aeronautics collection it houses an art collection with works from the Lake Constance region. Some 1,200 square meters are available for works from the Middle Ages through to the present. Highlights include Otto Dix and Max Ackermann. In one hall alternating exhibitions are presented: alongside historical shows such as recently with photographs by Andreas Feininger or with baroque painting by Johann Heinrich Schönfeld there are topical shows featuring contemporary art.
