Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart

4.8
#1 of 179 in Museums in Baden-Wurttemberg
Specialty Museum Museum
Mercedes-Benz Museum displays more than 160 vehicles, some of which date back to the earliest days of the motor engine. Located at the carmaker's international headquarters, the museum focuses on the company's history. Opened in 2006, the museum is an architectural attraction in its own right. It resembles a cloverleaf, with three overlapping circular structures that cover about 4,800 sq m (52,000 sq ft). Be sure to take advantage of a chance to tour the nearby diesel engine factory. To ensure your spot on the tour of the museum and the factory, book your tickets well in advance.

  • Of all the car museums I went to in Germany, I had the highest hopes for this one, because I have a major soft spot for Mercedes. In the end, it was good, but not as good as some of the others. There was a big emphasis on non-car history, which I found pretty interesting - it helped understand what was going on in Germany and in the world during each part of Daimler's history. The cars, of course, are stunning, and I learned a lot about cars I thought I knew, and saw many that I'd never even heard of. Well worth a visit.
  • The best Car/Technology museum I have ever been to! It is very organized, they have planned the entire visit perfectly. First you will take the elevator to the highest floor (8th) and then begin descending walking through all the rooms (rooms M1 till M7 and C1 till C5). The rooms are in chronological order: M1 (1886-1900) all the way to M6 (since 1982) & M7 (Silver arrows, for races & records). The galleries C1 to C5 are special rooms such as Gallery of Celebrities, Gallery of Helpers... + The admission ticket include an audio guide which is found to be very helpful
  • It is the museum ever. If you love the Mercedes it is your right place to visit. Big cars collections and joyful activities
  • A massive collection of all things Mercedes, not just their car collection but also their busses, trucks and other vehicles. Arrayed over many levels in a very impressive building, Mercedes have done an excellent job with their museum. The F1 cars in the carpark was a cool touch. Was highly rated by my non-car friends as it was covered a lot of history of the automobile, and of plenty of other vehicles as well.
  • Amazing place for any car fan. Huge place with lot of famous cars, it can take up to 4 hours to see everything. Unfortunately the offer of food and drinks is quite bad :-(.

Where to stay in Stuttgart

Stuttgart's city center offers a number of lodging options near major sites, but consider areas just outside the center for better deals. For example, Stuttgart-West is within walking distance from the center and boasts its fair share of cafes, restaurants, markets, and theaters. Two more areas, Stuttgart-Ost and Stuttgart-Süd, are also centrally located and full of local character.
