Magnificent buildings and cars Sep 28, 2011
My third evening in Stuttgart brought me to the great museum of Mercedes Benz museum and since Stuttgart is home to the Mercedes-Benz brand and the international headquarters of Daimler AG, the building is also made to stand out.

The magnificent building, which stands directly outside the main gate of the Daimler factory in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim was designed by UN Studio. It is based on a unique cloverleaf concept using three overlapping circles with the center removed to form a triangular atrium.

The building was completed and opened on 19 May 2006. The building's height and "double helix" interior were designed to maximize space, providing 16,500 square meters of exhibition space on a footprint of just 4,800 square meters.

The museum contains more than 160 vehicles, some dating back to the very earliest days of the motor engine. The vehicles are maintained by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center of Fellbach.

I had the luck to be given a guided tour by a young guy who was fascinated by the products from Mercedes. Many of the cars were incredible but I must say that I liked the cars from the 1930s and upwards the most. Compared to the Porsche museum Mercedes had more history but I liked the cars from Porsche better but the museum was still fabulous.

Chronicle the history of the world famous car company. Dec 05, 2011
Amazing building and only a few stops away from Stuttgart Hbf by S-bahn. Tour starts with an elevator ride to the top floor and it chronicles the history of the company as you make your way down. You're given an audio guide in your language which will correspond to certain pictures,displays.

Staff is friendly, and entry was quite cheap, received a student discount when I showed my university ID.

Definitely worth a visit, when your in Stuttgart.
