Location information for Friedrichshafen


Friedrichshafen was seriously bombarded during World War II and rebuilt afterwards. It's therefore a fairly modern city with the promenade along Lake Constance as its main attraction. The Baroque Schlosskirche in the city is worth a visit. It's also the birthplace of the Zeppelin; a museum has been dedicated to this airship.


The city has almost 60,000 inhabitants.


Friedrichshafen is located in the far south of Germany on the north shore of Lake Constance with on the other side of the lake Switzerland and Austria. The city's immediate surroundings are fairly flat, but the hilly Allgäu lies northeast of Friedrichshafen.


Aviation industry used to play an important role in local economy. The Zeppelin was manufactured in Friedrichshafen. Nowadays only small models of this illustrious airship remain, to make tourist trips. Shipping machinery is also manufactured in Friedrichshafen and to a large extent tourism contributes to the city's income. In addition many conferences and exhibitions are held here. 


Friedrichshafen Airport is situated almost 5 kilometers northeast of the city center. The airport is easily reachable: from Friedrichshafen's center you take the Paulinenstrasse which turns into the Ravensburgerstrasse which runs along the airport. The exit to the terminal is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

From the central bus station in front of the train station several buses leave for destinations both within and outside Friedrichshafen (for example to Überlingen and Meersburg). Night buses run on weekends. There's also a ferry connection with Romanshorn in Switzerland as well as boat connections with other places around Lake Constance.

Traffic and Parking

During high season (in the summer) the roads in and around Friedrichshafen can be fairly busy. Especially on the B31 (Lindau-Friedrichshafen-Immenstadt-Hagnau-Meersburg-Überlingen) there are often traffic jams. In summer months it's therefore not easy to find a parking place in the street. There are several parking garages in and around the city center where you can park your rental car, for example on the lake near the Graf-Zeppelin-Haus, in the Parkhaus am See and the Parkhaus am Marktkauf Hafenbahnhof. There's a large parking lot east of the harbor.


Friedrichshafen has a good choice of accommodations; most of them are typical southern German family hotels. There's also a city campsite, CAP Rotach Camping, and there's a campsite in the eastern district Fischbach.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
