It all started with the Zeppelin. Although they belong firmly to the past, everybody is familiar with the sight of the world-famous airships developed by Graf Zeppelin. They were built in Friedrichshafen, laying the foundation stone for international high-tech enterprises such as ZF, MTU, Zeppelin-Metallwerke or EADS .
Today, Friedrichshafen is a balanced mixture of industrial centre, tourist attraction, and trade fair venue offering a healthy equilibrium between work and play. This creative atmosphere draws an ever increasing number of people and greater resources to the area.
Friedrichshafen is "the" volleyball city in Germany. The team of VfB Friedrichshafen is not only the champion of Germany but the winner of the ChampionsLeague 2006/2007. In addition the Volley YoungStars is an ambitious team playing in the second league.

The training camp of the VfB-Friedrichshafen is located in the ARENA Friedrichshafen and provides an ideal area for the trainees who then can attend special seminars.
