impression | Dornier and Zeppelin

Hi lovelies,

I hope everyone of you could enjoy the extended weekend we had here in Germany. During these days a good friend visited me and we decided to do some trips in “the neighbourhood” 😉 The only problem was the weather – the countryside near Lake Constance is really beautiful – but not when it is raining cats and dogs all the time.

The solution to make the best of the day was to visit the Dornier-Museum, which is located at Friedrichshafen airport, and the Zeppelin-Museum near the harbour.

We started at the Dorniermuseum and had a look at various documents and models built by Dornier, a great engineer from Friedrichshafen and founder of the same named company, which was overtaken by Daimler-Benz first and finally became part of EADS.

As you can see, there is a valid license plate so the car is ready to drive on the street.img_2014-1024x768 impression | Dornier and ZeppelinI must confess that we did not visit the “main attraction” of the Zeppelin-Museum” – the partly reconstruction of the cabin interior – because the queue was extremely long.

Have a wonderful time!
