In Stuttgart, Preceding the Prime Minister!
When it was a fact that Victor Ponta, the Romanian Prime
Minister would officially visit Germany, and during his visit he will arrive
also in Stuttgart, I thought I could tell him some places not to miss in the capital
city of Baden-Württemberg State. My visit preceded his with less than a month.
The Stuttgart Region hosted the
39th GTM Germany Travel Mart 2013. The German
National Tourist Board (Deutsche Zentrale für Tourismus - DZT) invited and
welcomed, from May 5 to 7, more than 610 buyers, tourism professionals and
journalists from 42 countries, and more than 350 German providers from the
hotel, inbound and transport sectors, as well as local and regional tourism
I was one of the lucky journalists invited and I had the
chance to see Stuttgart, with its Volksfest and
gourmet restaurants, its car museums and WilhelmaGardens, the vibrant nightlife and
fantastic exhibitions, Stuttgart
full of exciting contrasts. The tours I took in the city and in the region gave
me a large perspective about the culture, the wines and the cars from this
• Mercedes-Benz and
Porsche - dreams on wheels!
As also the Romanian Prime Minister found out, in fact the
reason of the visit was this, Stuttgart
is home to two of the leading names in the automotive world, Daimler-Benz and
Porsche, both not only with factories, but also with spectacular museums in the
city. The breathtaking Mercedes-BenzMuseum looks back on some
of the finest feats from the world of mobility. Nine floors are needed to
display a total of more than 1,500 exhibits tracing the history of the brand.
Visitors can learn all about the legendary Porsche at the PorscheMuseum in Zuffenhausen. The exhibition
space at this glittering white museum is leaving you breathless.
But it’s much more to visit than the two museums. In the
medieval town of Schorndorf
is the house where Gottlieb Daimler was born in 1834, and where it all started…
Today, the house where he was born, which has been bought and restored by
Daimler-Benz AG, serves as a museum and conference venue. Inside is the famous
postcard on which Daimler wrote: “From here a star will rise...”, the first
mention of the star that would later become the hallmark of Mercedes-Benz.
The Gottlieb Daimler memorial in the Bad Cannstatt district
of Stuttgart is located in what used to be a greenhouse. This is where Daimler,
together with Wilhelm Maybach, transformed his ideas into reality. The models
of the engines and tools bring to life the pioneering work of the two
is home to Daimler AG’s largest car manufacturing plant. This is where the
premium and luxury models are made and during a tour, visitors get to
experience at close hand the different stages involved in car production.
