Create an itinerary including Mercedes-Benz 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.

  • Very inspiring, extremely well done museum: of course focus is on the Mercedes Benz cars and how they evolved over time. You take the elevator up to the top floor and then walk all the way down...

  • Fantastic museum!! I was impressed and it was cheaper than I expected. There were expositions from each decade since 1900. They were really really beautiful most of the car designs. The building itself was also pretty and quite impressive. Even the loft was cool.
  • Impressive museum! Sadly I got an audio guide with a low battery and it died in the middle of my visit. You get to keep the strap of the audio guide as a souvenir by the way. It takes around 2-3h to see everything depending on your speed. It starts with a chronological order since 1900. There is a lot of information for car enthusiasts and also for people who just want to learn more about the history of car making and the different inventions/technologies throughout the history. The design of the building itself is amazing. There are lockers and coat storage places. Toilets, which were remarkably clean, are available not only during the start/end of the museum but there is one in each level as far as I remember. At the end of the tour, some fun interactive activities are available which can also be suitable for kids, I think it was called science center or something similar. The gift shop had a very limited selection and was quite overpriced.
