Patricia Vorkäufer, Presale Manager

»Your event? Is in the best of hands with me. There's no such thing as impossible for me.«


Matthias Klingler, Manager Graf-Zeppelin-Haus

»The location is magnificent, the building venue sensational. But the real talent is the incredible GZH team.«


Innovative, dynamic and above all, reliable

Event and stage technology

Graf-Zeppelin-Haus is renowned for its high standards of technical equipment. To be precise: In Friedrichshafen, a technophile city,  the passion for technical perfection was written into the DNA of GZH right from the start. Ever since its launch in 1985 there has not been an event cancelled because of a technical fault. That fact alone certainly speaks for itself.

Sustainable Meetings – Green Meetings

Green GZH

We live and work in an ecologically unique region. The Graf-Zeppelin-Haus cultural and conference centre is located directly at the shore of Lake Constance. The lake in the middle of the triangle bordering Germany, Austria and Switzerland not only acts as the drinking water reservoir for millions of people, but is also the leisure paradise for holiday-makers from all over the world, and a popular destination for conferences and conventions for national and international customers alike.

City of the pioneers of mobility


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.

»State-of-the-art has always been somewhat insufficient for us. It simply has to be more than that in the Zeppelin city.«
