This year summer begins on 18 June – the day the Mercedes-Benz Museum launches its exciting summer programme. From then until the end of the summer holidays in Baden-Württemberg on 8 September 2013, a variety of different events will be staged in and around the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

The special S-Class exhibition (18 June – 3 November 2013) presents the history and diversity of the luxury model series from Mercedes-Benz and takes the museum visitor on an automotive journey through the generations – from a 60 hp Mercedes-Benz of 1903, through to the present day with the new S-Class (222 series).

Fans of the fire service, both young and old, should make a note in their diaries of “Helpers’ Week” (25 June – 30 June 2013): over 80 fire vehicles will be turning out for a presentation outside the museum, framed by a colourful supporting programme on the theme of fire extinguishing, rescue and recovery.
At “Cars & Coffee” the spotlight shines on individual collectors’ vehicles: on four Sundays (14 July, 28 July, 18 August and 8 September 2013), the hill outside the Mercedes-Benz Museum will once again become a meeting point for fans of classic cars from Mercedes-Benz.

Other highlights of the 2013 Museum Summer include the Bertha Benz Days (2 August – 4 August 2013), the Mercedes-Benz Open Air Cinema (15 August – 1 September 2013) and the summer holiday programme with special offers for children.

The Mercedes-Benz Lounge (18 June – 8 September 2013) outside the Museum is the perfect place to relax from Tuesday to Sunday from 12 a.m. with refreshing drinks and mouth-watering snacks. The “Happy Hour” from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. sweetens the end of the day. Every Friday from 6 p.m. there will be a barbecue. Every second Sunday during the summer months, the Museum restaurant will also be opening the buffet for its popular Sunday brunch.
