Exclamation In the bylanes of Stuttgart: The Non-Touristy Auto Enthusiast way!

This is me posting after ages, the final few months of my academic life have pressured the hell outta me, however when i was in the presence of the beasts that follow this post, I was thinking, TeamBHP should come here! I will let the pictures speak for themselves!

Stuttgart, graciously celebrating 125 years of the automobile!

Hey Edmund, nice pictures there. What show was this? The background suggests that the show was held at Schlossplatz. Was there in the December 2008 for visiting the Mercedes and Porsche museums, loved it.

You're right, this is the Schlossplatz, it was called "125 years of the automobile"

Yes and hopefully for some more time.

I guess many of the cars displayed in the hangar were also at the Techno Classica in Essen earlier this year.

Keep the pictures coming .

Hi Amit,
Are you doing higher studies there? Ok, here you go.
Mercedes-Benz Classic - Museum - For Visitors
You need to take S-bahn (S1) from Stuttgart Hbf and get down at Neckarpark (Mercedes-Benz). From there the museum is walkable and you will be guided by the boards placed for directions to reach there. There is a discount on the enrty fee for students. The museum looks like a huge vertical spiral. You have to take the lift to the top most floor where the displays begin with the first engine developed by Karl Benz. As you slowly walk down the spirals, you will end at the exit gate near which you can find any of the recent developments camouflaged and placed for display.
Attached is the picture of today's C350. Picture shot in 04/2007. Really a nice place for automotive enthusiasts.
Check www.vvs.de for the fahrplan

Pics of Stuttgart makes me nostalgic. I used to work in Schweiberdingen, and drove by the Porsche assembly line that is split over the freeway. I would also recommend the Porsche Museum. It was very close to where I lived, near Stammheim. I am sure you will like it. Have fun, great pics.

I work for Daimler India and I had been to Stuttgart a couple of times. I had been to Stuttgart during christmas last year and Schlossplatz was a wonderful sight. The 'Gluewine' served during christmas season is awesome.Me and my friends used to call the Koeniggstrasse the MG Road of Stuttgart.By the way, my office in germany was right infront of the Museum (Unterturkheim).Best thing I liked about Stuttgart (Apart from Cars) is the nightlife. I was very sceptical initially. But then, I realised the city was totally safe. I also stayed in an Indian restaurant in Esslingen by name Hotel RI (Kohinoor)
