Friedrichshafen, Germany

At the heart of our museum is this partial reconstruction, true to size, of the Hindenburg. The B-Deck can be viewed in the walk-in section. The sleeping cabins, social room and the reading and writing room can be seen on a higher floor. The smoking salon, however, as well as the interior long beam and ring carrier construction of the airship, can only be viewed from the outside. The construction was based on the original plans, while the manufacture and installation was conducted by Zeppelin Metallwerke. It took five years and almost 40,000 working hours to complete the work.
