Named for its founder, King Friedrich I of Württemberg, Friedrichshafen is a relatively young town (dating to 1811). The most famous attraction of Friedrichshafen is the `Zeppelin museum`, meant to preserve something of the `Zeppelin City` old town identity. It served as manufacturing center for giant airships since 1900 to the Hindenburg disaster. A short visit to Switzerland is possible via the streamers crossing Lake Constance.
