Following my previous post about the trip to Friedrichshafen in Germany with Monarch Airlines and Bodensee-Airport Friedrichshafen, I wanted to fill you in on the full details of my intense yet fun-filled 24-hour return trip to Friedrichshafen.

Located on the northern side of Lake Constance in South Germany near Litchenstein, Switzerland and Austria, Friedrichshafen was established in 1811 within the state of Baden-Württemberg. With a population of around 58,000 people, the city is well located to serve tourists to the Alps as well as the surrounding areas, making it an ideal year-round destination.

Travelling from London to the Austrian Alps is possible in just 2.5 hours, a surprisingly quick turnaround enabling you to maximise your time on the slopes. From Bodensee-Airport there are excellent transfer times to the major ski resorts of Austria and Switzerland amongst others. The new airport terminal building has 14 check-in desks, as well as a new non-aviation area with bars, shops and a duty-free-shop.
