I enjoy history so this was quite a learning experience. This is a big museum with vast history of the Zepellins plus a reconstruction of the Hindenburg. Worth a visit.

This is most likely the most authentic spot to learn about the history of Zeppelins. Facts, historically document all at one place. The museum is right next to the harbor with lots of restaurants, cafe´s and shops
