„Where tradition meets the spirit of the age – and has done since 1886“

On 29 January, 1886 Carl Benz registered the first self-propelled „vehicle powered by a gas engine“ with the Imperial Patent Office in Germany. Even today this is considered the birth date of the automobile.

Together with the Museums‘ s unique architecture (2005) the museum features on nine levels

  • 160 shining witnesses of automotive history
  • 1,500 exhibits
  • 16,500 qm

July 14, I was happy to take a group from the Lebanon to the Mercedes-Benz Museum and started off on a time journey!
