The Mercedes-Benz Museum

Day 10

Today, I was able to visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum, and this place was totally worth going.  This museum has to be a must-see for any tourists going to Stuttgart.  It presents a history of the company and features many cars that the company has designed and built over the years.  I took a lot of pictures, and have uploaded them to Picasa!

The quality of the cars here are just fantastic.  Although a lot of the originals no longer exist, the replicas still look very good.  I had no idea that there was so much history here. 

The history begins at the invention of the internal combustion engine by Nikolaus Otto, and the subsequent invention of the automobile by Karl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler, and Wilhelm Maybach to the modern day automobiles.  The museum features all kinds of cars, from luxury cars, public transportation vehicles, and emergency vehicles.
