Zeppelin University with its own campus on the shore of Lake Constance is located in a region with one of the most beautiful landscapes in Germany. Embedded in the border triangle Germany-Austria-Switzerland and in the immediate vicinity to attractive metropolises such as Zurich, Munich and Stuttgart, not only sports enthusiasts find an almost endless range of offers here.
Has the Lake Constance region been getting more beautiful since ZU opened here? Let’s ask the former mayor of the city of Friedrichshafen, Josef Büchelmeier, who knows better than anyone else. "The city sees the establishment of such an innovative university, with the help of local industry, as a positive signal. Here professors, lecturers and students think ahead in an interdisciplinary way. Life in the city of Zeppelin is being enriched by public offers of ZU such as the Citizens’ University. Life here is getting new impulses."
Felix Meissner, ZU-alumnus of business administration and economics, describes this as follows, "In my opinion, the innovative Swabian spirit of tinkerers and entrepreneurs draws a large part of its inspiration from the beautiful and varied landscape which invites you to numerous sports activities: The panorama view across the pre-Alps when hiking or snowboarding, as well as Lake Constance which invites you to dive, surf or sail – here unconventional and good ideas mostly come up in nature and not behind a desk."

“As I have been involved in the growth process of ZU since 2004, I can agree to all postulated "About Us" statements of the university management. It also does not need to be mentioned that the lake and the Alps provide a recreational value which easily compensates the nightlife of Friedrichshafen which is currently just developing. Even more exciting is the (in-)official alumni work and its networking, which create a reciprocal and multiple valued exchange of which all can profit. If I had children, I would send them to ZU."
