Most of the accommodation in Friedrichshafen is set back from the wide bay and in between the lake shoreline and the area around the railway station. There are other locations outside the town centre in the neighbouring villages which can be found using the search box above the map below.
There are a couple of hotels located on the northern side of the town which have been listed under the accommodation for the airport.
The hotels chosen are taken from the four-star and three-star categories and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner Booking.com. You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.

Bodensee Airport, the correct term for the airport at Friedrichshafen, is on the northern side of the town only a few kilometres from the centre.
The airport offers internal German flights and summer charter and scheduled services for travel companies. There may be more choice of flights in the winter because of the popularity of the airport for ski holidays in neighbouring Switzerland and Austria.
The airport has its own railway station and regular bus services are available from the centre of Friedrichshafen.
Naturally, the local Bodensee Airport is the closest option, but other airports may provide a greater choice of available flights.
Distance to Bodensee Airport: 5km
Distance to Memmingen Airport: 91km
Distance to Zurich Airport: 132km
Distance to Stuttgart Airport: 202km
Distance to Innsbruck Airport: 219km
Distance to Munich Airport: 230km
Memmingen (now Allgäu Airport) is a decent option and is growing in popularity for this part of Germany. The wide range of scheduled and charter services available from the last four major regional airports may swing the choice in their favour.
Friedrichshafen has two stations: the main Friedrichshafen Stadt railway station, which is the hub for longer distance journeys, and the Friedrichshafen Hafen station on the lakeshore which connects to the ferry services on Lake Constance.
Services head out from Friedrichshafen in all directions, with routes to Basle in Switzerland; to Ulm and Stuttgart to the north (with connections to the rest of Germany); to Innsbruck in Austria; and a local route along the northern shore of Lake Constance between Lindau and Radolfzell.
The BSB ("Bodensee-Schiffsbetriebe GmbH") operates a regular car ferry service between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn on the Swiss shore. Friedrichshafen is also served by the slow regular passenger ferry around the lake from Bregenz to Konstanz.
A frequent high-speed catamaran service between Friedrichshafen and Konstanz is also available, operated by Katamaran-Reederei Bodensee GmbH & Co.
