Stuttgart is the heart of the automotive industry. Just miles apart, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche display their history in all their glory in the dedicated museums. From now on, an entrance ticket to one of the museums brings a 25% discount at the other. The offer is valid until the end of the year.
It seems that opposites attract in Stuttgart. To mark their business partnership, the Mercedes-Benz Museum and the Porsche Museum go even further than offering discounts from the tickets regular prices. The legendary Mercedes-Benz W 111 230 S from 1966 will be on display in front of the Porsche Museum, while the Mercedes-Benz Museum will exhibit the iconic Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 from 1975.
Visitors who want to see both museums only need to present their entrance ticket from the other to get the discount. The regular price ticket for the Mercedes-Benz Museum is €8 and €4 for the Porsche venue.
“Giving car enthusiasts from all over the world this added value was just a matter of time. This collaboration also emphasizes the good neighborly relations between the Mercedes-Benz Museum and us, the Porsche Museum”, says Achim Stejskal, Head of the Porsche Museum and Historic PR.
The museum located at the heart of the company’s headquarters in Zuffenhausen, boasts with more than 3 million visitors since opening its gates in 2009. The interactive experience includes a 12-meter long touchwall, introduced this year, helping visitors take a virtual trip in time, through the company’s history. The Porsche Museum is open daily from Tuesday to Sunday, 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.
“Stuttgart has not one but two great car museums. It’s unique and a real stroke of luck. Many visitors tell us that the museums are the only reason they travel to Stuttgart. We are honoring this with a joint campaign,” says Christian Boucke, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic and Customer Center.
The Mercedes-Benz Museum, hosted in a multi-award-winning 9-floor structure, celebrates its 10-year anniversary. Approximately 160 vehicles and more than 1500 other exhibits have been on display there for the past decade, going all the way from 1886, when Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler put the first automobiles on the road, to the futuristic concepts of the premium car maker.
