Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Friedrichshafen along with the rest of Germany. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Germany has restricted the entry of travelers who are arriving from outside the European Economic Area, except for nationals of Germany, residents with a residence permit, and D-Visa holders, and certain exceptions (detailed below).

Travelers must have spent at least 2 weeks in the above-listed countries prior to their flight to Germany. Restrictions will also be lifted for entry from South Korea, China and Japan if this can be agreed on a reciprocal basis. The list will be reviewed every two weeks. Entry from any third country is possible for travelers who can demonstrate an important reason for their travel. The list of important reasons covers German and EU citizens and any third-country nationals with a right of residency in Germany. It also includes healthcare and social care personnel and health researchers, skilled workers whose economic activity is necessary and cannot be postponed or performed from abroad, freight and transport staff, seasonal workers, students who cannot continue their studies from abroad, travelers making visits for urgent family reasons, diplomats and staff at international organisations, and persons transiting Germany. Travelers entering Germany after staying in a designated risk area abroad during the previous 14 days must undergo mandatory testing for Covid-19.

Travelers who need to be tested have the choice to either present a valid test taken within 48 hours prior to arrival, take a test on arrival at the airport, or take a test after returning to their place of residence in Germany, by reporting to the local health office. The test is free of charge if taken within 72 hours of arrival. Travelers with a negative test may be exempted from the 14-day self-isolation requirement, but some German states require a second negative test before granting an exemption from quarantine. Quarantine requirements in Germany differ depending on the German state. All travelers arriving from high-risk areas (over 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants) are required to stay in quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Germany. More information can be found here..

When is the best time to fly to Friedrichshafen?

Friedrichshafen, located in southern Germany close to the Austrian and Swiss borders, is a popular destination for tourists and business travellers alike. Due to the fact that Friedrichshafen hosts a number of conferences and trade fairs each year, it can sometimes be difficult to predict when prices of travel may or may not be high, since the occurrence of a major exhibition in the city will inevitably make it more difficult to book a hotel room and a flight to Friedrichshafen. For example, in June, thousands of Ham radio enthusiasts descend on the city to experience the International Exhibition for Radio Amateurs. Typically, the most expensive period to visit Friedrichshafen will be during the summer months of July and August, when the temperatures reach a comfortable mid-twenties degrees C, and both tourists and business travellers compete for hotel rooms and flights. Therefore, it is certainly advisable to try to book your trip well in advance in order to find cheap flights to Friedrichshafen; flexibility on travel dates will certainly help to keep the costs low.

City overview

One of the reasons many tourists choose to take a flight to Friedrichshafen is due to its central location. Not only is Friedrichshafen on the banks of Lake Constance (Bodensee in German) which offers many tourist activities but it is also close to Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein, so it makes a great base to explore this part of Europe. Friedrichshafen itself has a relatively short history, having been established in 1811. Largely rebuilt after heavy bombing during Second World War, Friedrichshafen is arguably most famous for its connection to Ferdinand von Zeppelin, the founder of the Zeppelin airship company. In fact, it is possible to take a flight in one of these magnificent airships from Friedrichshafen airport. The flights last up to a couple of hours and, due to the big demand for seats, need to be booked months in advance. For fans of this airship and aeronautics in general, a trip to the Zeppelin museum in Friedrichshafen is also a must. It holds the largest aviation collection in the world alongside an impressive art collection of pieces created in Friedrichshafen and the region over the last 500 years.
