We needed to fill in a day while the van was being sorted and had heard from other people camping out at the Hymer factory that Frederickshaven was worth a trip. Our first port of call was the Zeppelin museum – the Zeppelin flying machines were developed and built here. I had never realised just how extensively they were flown and the length of the journeys they made.
We found a traditional local festival was on in town with beer halls set up along the lakeside and bands and small orchestras playing in each. Like a mini Oktoberfest! Some great music, lots of beer and some traditional German food – what more do you need to have a great day.
