If you love fast cars, this is the place to visit: the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
On three floors visitors will find more than 120 years of automobile history. See “Blitzen Benz,” the racing car in which Bob Burman drove his world record of 228 kmh in 1911 at Daytona Beach.

Enjoy the sight of luxurious limousines and elegant sports cars from the ’20s and ’30s, such as the emperor’s car and the compressor sports car with the 500K special roadster, the first serial diesel car in the world and the most popular pre-war 170 V.

Finally, don’t miss the “Silver Arrow.” Based on a racing car from 1952, this Mercedes Benz 300 SL coupe with its wing doors became a legend, and it’s a definite must for lovers of beautiful cars.
