You only have to want it and believe in it, and then it will succeed*

The Zeppelin exhibition at Aeronauticum Museum Nordholz was a big success, so we were particularly happy to work on another exhibition on the Zeppelin history – this time at the ‘birth place’ of the airships, Friedrichshafen at the Lake Constance neighboring Switzerland, Austria and Southern Germany.
The exhibition at the Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen was to cover two central topics. On one hand, it shed the light on the role of Earl Zeppelin and his bond to the region surrounding Lake Constance. Here, the exhibition mainly focused on the Earl’s achievements for the development of aviation in general, since he did not only develop his famous Zeppelins, but was also involved in the conception of various other airplanes. On the other hand, the chronologically ordered exhibition focused on the history and impact of aviation in the Lake Constance region. Thanks to Earl Zeppelin and his influence, the Lake Constance area was one of the hubs of early aviation. *cit. by Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin
