THE MERCEDES-BENZ MUSEUM
The Mercedes-Benz Museum is by far the most visited museum in the whole of Stuttgart. In addition to Daimler classics and racing cars, the museum also presents new-generation models. An absolute must for every car lover. As the company has a long tradition in various fields, the museum is correspondingly extensive. All exhibits are in excellent condition. It also brings history closer to those who are actually only interested in cars via the path of the car. 12 rooms, 16,500 square metres of exhibition space, more than 160 vehicles.
The Mercedes-Benz Museum, which opened on 19 May 2006, is located directly in front of the main gate of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Untertürkheim on the B14 and opposite the Mercedes-Benz Arena – the venue of the VfB Stuttgart football club.
