Promenade (Dining Room)


During its first year of service, the airship had a special aluminium Blüthner grand piano (~180 kg) placed on board in the lounge, but it was removed after the first year to save weight.

If you compare the original with the replica, on the left is missing a picture and the shelve was actually white coloured.

    One of the pictures here shows a passenger cabin with a window, but none of the cabins on the LZ-129 had windows.

    Could that image be from the LZ-130?

  2. Mark Says:

    cabins were added to b deck between the first and second seasons to accomodate more passengers. this is part of the reason the grand piano was removed.

    can we get plans of b deck onto this page at all? if not, can anyone tell me where i can get some on the web?

  3. Ron Says:

    That particular picture is from the LZ-130. The cabins added on B deck would have had the windows near the floor.

  4. Ron Says:

    The artwork by Otto Arkpe is beautiful! Are there any additional images of his Hindenburg work which can be added to this page?

    @ Mark (who asked about deckplans for B Deck): There are deckplans, as well as other interior photos, on my website at http://www.airships.net/airship-hindenburg-zeppelin/lz-129-hindenburg-interiors

    BTW, if anyone knows where I can buy repros of those Breuhaus chairs (such as the ones at the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen) let me know! :-)

    Wow… I’ve been fascinated by the German airships since I was a kid, and I’ve seen some interior photos before, but nothing like what you have put together. Thanks! I feel like I’ve taken a tour.

    In reference to J.peterson questions “where did the piano go? was it auctioned off or destroyed? how much did it weigh?” … the piano weighed about 180kg/400lbs and was removed after a few months to save weight.
