It all started with the Zeppelin. Although they belong firmly to the past, everybody is familiar with the sight of the world-famous airships developed by Graf Zeppelin. They were built in Friedrichshafen, laying the foundation stone for international high-tech enterprises such as EADS, ZF, Zeppelin-Metallwerke or MTU.
Today, Friedrichshafen is a balanced mixture of industrial centre, tourist attraction, and trade fair venue offering a healthy equilibrium between work and play. This creative atmosphere draws an ever increasing number of people and greater resources to the area.
