A visit to the Mercedes-Benz Museum at Easter is an experience for all generations. There is an opportunity for a family outing, for example, on all public holidays: the Museum will be open daily from Good Friday (7 April 2023) to Easter Monday (10 April 2023) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The permanent exhibition with 160 vehicles and a total of 1,500 exhibits tells the story of the automobile from its invention by Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler in 1886 to the future.
The tour of the Museum is currently complemented by the large special exhibition “Moving in Stereo”. On display are more than 150 works of art from 1910 to the present day from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection. From Southwest German classics such as Willi Baumeister, Adolf Hölzel and Oskar Schlemmer to young international artists such as Clément Cogitore, Alia Farid, Cao Fei and Haris Epaminonda, works from a broad spectrum of media are presented: from painting, drawing, sculpture and light objects to photography, installations and video. The exhibition “Moving in Stereo” has been extended and will run until 17 September 2023.
New additions to Legend Room 7: Silver Arrows – Racing and Records include two special streamlined racing cars on display at the Museum for the first time.
- Benz “Prinz Heinrich” special touring car, 1910: One of only two remaining original Benz & Cie. vehicles in the world for the Prinz-Heinrich-Fahrt contest of 1910. The high-tech of the time featured dual ignition and four-valve technology.
- Mercedes-Benz SSKL Avus racing car, 1932: The aerodynamically optimised bodywork gave this car the edge in the International Avus Race in Berlin, which was won by Manfred von Brauchitsch. Since then, racing cars have been consistently built this way. Because the original no longer exists, Mercedes-Benz reconstructed the vehicle true to the original in 2019 using archival documents.
During the Baden-Württemberg Easter holidays from 6 to 15 April, the CAMPUS children’s area will be open on weekdays in addition to weekends. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., interested children accompanied by adults can take part in Easter craft activities. Prior registration is not required.
