'Building the future on tradition' – the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart is more than just a home for 125 years of automotive history.
The building housing the Mercedes-Benz Museum is an exceptional piece of architecture, which reflects the ideals of originality that lie at the heart of the Mercedes-Benz brand, always striving to create completely new concepts for human mobility. A double helix inside the museum, based on human DNA, symbolises the 'genetic makeup' of the brand. There are two tours available. The route of the first takes in seven 'Legend rooms' that relate the history of the Mercedes brand. From car production pioneers to motor racing icons, you can find out everything there is to know about the remarkable history of Mercedes-Benz. The second tour consists of five separate 'Collection rooms' that showcase the diversity of the brand portfolio from passenger cars to heavy goods vehicles. The 'Fascination of Technology' exhibition provides visitors with a glimpse behind the scenes into the work of Mercedes-Benz employees and towards the future of the motor car. A detailed picture of the Mercedes-Benz brand emerges from over 1,450 individual exhibits, including 160 vehicles, many of them epoch-making, such as the Gullwing from the 1950s and the Silver Arrows. Special exhibitions round off the experience. Take a journey of discovery through the history of the motor car, from its very beginnings 125 years ago to the latest technological visions for the future. Come to Stuttgart and come face to face with the history of mobility!
