Take a journey through more than 130 years of fascinating automotive history – and on into the future.
Visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart and you will be entering the only place in the world capable of documenting the unbroken history of the automobile from its very beginning. Transporting you to a height of 34 metres, the museum lift will take you on a journey back in time – to the year 1886. For this is where the legend begins, with the pioneering invention of Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz – the automobile. Few inventions have made such an impact on the human world.
Two interlinked museum tours guide the visitor through the spectacular architecture of the building and the eventful history of the Mercedes-Benz brand – combining the key moments in contemporary world history with super sports cars, Silver Arrows and Gullwings. The two tours lead to the same end point: the innovations of the present. Here in the Fascination of Technology exhibition you will gain an insight into the latest topics from the worlds of research, design, development and production.
Over an area covering 16,500 square metres on nine levels, the exhibition presents 160 vehicles and over 1,500 exhibits, divided into Legend rooms and Collection rooms. The Legend rooms document the history of the Mercedes-Benz brand and are subdivided into themes and epochs. The Collection rooms offer a thematic presentation of the wealth and diversity of vehicles made by the brand.
Relive the history – and at the same time you will be afforded an informative glimpse into the future. Where do we go from here?
