Travel to Friedrichshafen

Bodensee Airport

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.

Nearest airports to 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.

Train station at Friedrichshafen

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.

Lake Constance ferry travel

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.
