The train station is the largest in Europe by area. When I lived in Germany I loved to go shopping there. Went to visit the zoo last year and got to feed sea lions. the kids had a ball.

Leipzig is a wonderful city to visit. The city has amazing buildings and the history is also amazing. The zoo is worth a visit also. If I was still a vis Germany I would go visit this amazing city again.

The Zepplin Museum really a worthwhile stop to make while in Germany. I loved the town,, the waterfront and pier. I can still remember the church bells from the chapel next door to my hotel room.

I love Friedrichshafen. My cousin lives there. I am always looking forward to visit her when I travel to Germany. Be sure you eat a "Bodenseefelchen" ( fish from the Bodensee) and drink a glass of I am homesick!! :-)

The Zepplin Museum was very interesting. My husband really wanted to see it so we took a weekend trip. The town is Georgeous! My only advice is, if you visit during the summer or any warm weather time and are staying in a local hotel, make sure you include a parking spot because parking is really hard to find!

The Zepplin museum is great. I also love the town. I spent 5 days there two summers ago and had a great time. Go there if you are in the area.

We've walked by it on all 3 trips to the city, but haven't ventured past the gift shop. Too much to see on the waterfront. That's a great place to stay for a weekend exploring the Bodensee.

I just was there last September, but I had forgotten my camera that day :-) One thing though, you have to try the chocolate from Cafe Gerlach....mhhhhhhhhhhh....or have a cup of coffee and one of their scrumptous cakes!

if you are staying within 1 city for a week or more, check out the subway passes for longer time periods. For example, Munich has an Isarcard that is valid for 1 week within the inner 2 rings which is less expensive than a 3 day ticket that is valid for the entire system (which you likely wouldn't use anyways)

Lived there during my time in the Army and loved every minute. Such a wonderful town with so much to do year round. A must-see place for people of all ages.
