Zeppelins are a type of rigid airship pioneered by the German in the early 20th century. Due to the outstanding success of the Zeppelin design, the term zeppelin in casual use came to refer to all rigid dirigibles.

Zeppelins served scheduled flights before World War I. After the outbreak of the war, the German military made extensive use of Zeppelins as bombers and scouts.

The German defeat halted the airship business temporarily. They reached their zenith in the 1930s, when the airships Zeppelin and Hindenburg operated regular transatlantic flights between Germany and both North and South America.

The Hindenburg accident in 1937, combined with political and economic issues, contributed to the demise of the Zeppelin.
