Friedrichshafen is located on the Baden-Wuerttemberg shore of Lake Constance, in the triangle bordering Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The city is not just a popular destination for tourists but is also well-known as the city of the Zeppelin. Aerospace, automotive and high tech corporations can be found in Friedrichshafen nowadays. Inventors such as Count Zeppelin, Claude Dornier, Theodor Kober, Karl Maybach and the Count of Soden-Fraunhofen still represent the literal spirit of discovery and the great curiosity about new things here in southern Germany even today. This also explains why the relatively small city of Friedrichshafen with its approximately 55,000 inhabitants regularly tops the rankings in many areas like sport, education, research, technology, and economy.
