Get your ski on
If whizzing down the slopes is your idea of fun, you’ll have your pick of top ski resorts to choose from when you fly to Friedrichshafen. Innsbruck is a firm favourite for its pretty good looks and range of pistes, while St Anton am Arlberg is renowned for its après ski scene.
Get to know this German city before you depart for the mountains! It’s gone down in the aviation history books thanks to its role establishing Zeppelin airships, which you can learn all about at the Zeppelin Museum. Meanwhile, the lakefront promenade is perfect for a winter’s stroll.
Heaps of hearty fare
Alpine cuisine is all about warming, hearty dishes and you’ll find plenty of them here. Dunk still-warm bread into gooey fondue, tuck into smoked sausage and dig into a simple omelette – the choice is yours! And if you’re looking for local tipples, mulled wine is a firm favourite in these parts.
