Located where southern Germany meets Switzerland and Austria, on the north coast of Lake Constance, the city of Friedrichshafen is the gateway to great city breaks in spring and summer, or more extensive ski adventures in winter. Friedrichshafen is an ideal year-round destination.
Why choose Friedrichshafen?
Nestled on the north coast of Lake Constance, Friedrichshafen is home to historic architecture, and is a popular holiday destination for Germans. As the birthplace of the Zeppelin Airship and the historic centre of German aviation, the city has a long and varied history. You can tour the factories that built these great airships and aircraft, as well as take modern versions on sightseeing tours. The combination of city and nature forms an attractive backdrop, and Friedrichshafen has one of the longest waterfront promenades of any town along Lake Constance for visitors to explore. Lake-lovers will not be disappointed by Lake Constance as it offers numerous outdoor activities including cycling and canoeing.
While Friedrichshafen is a great place to experience some undiscovered German culture in spring and summer, its real draw as a holiday destination is in winter. By taking one of Monarch’s cheap flights to the city, you gain access to hundreds of ski resorts in the vicinity of the city, such as Flumserberg, Klosters and Lech. You can also easily transfer to a number of ski resorts in Germany, Switzerland and particularly Austria, making it the perfect gateway to the slopes for skiing holidays this year.
