Love of beautifully maintained cars.

They come from the region, some even from abroad, and there are many of them: the first warm rays of sunshine mean increasing anticipation for Classics & Coffee. The popular vintage and young classics meet-up at the Mercedes-Benz Museum will take place every Sunday to 8 October 2023. When the weather is fine, several hundred gleaming car bodies transform the Museum mound into a large open-air car show. It’s all about the love of old and beautifully maintained cars, talking to other petrol-heads and, of course, seeing and being seen. Vehicles of all makes with H plates, as well as young classics more than 20 years old and in good condition, are welcome to come along. No pre-registration is required, and participation is free of charge.


One of the secrets of the success of “Classics & Coffee” is its diversity: all car brands and vehicles from all eras are welcome. The Museum mound is the prestigious presentation area for this “carwalk”. This makes the meet-up and its special ambience an experience even for Museum visitors without their own vehicle.

Themed specials on several Mercedes model series add variety to the scenery. There is even a whole weekend dedicated to the popular Mercedes-Benz 190 “Baby Benz”. Vehicles of other brands are always welcome on all special dates. The online platform Collecting Cars will be a guest for the first time with the “Coffee Run”, where super sports cars present themselves on the mound. In mid-August, the Mercedes-Benz Museum will offer its congratulations on “75 years of Porsche”, and welcome all sports cars bearing the Stuttgart “Rössle” horse badge on the bonnet.

Start of the open-air season.

Culinary delights will be provided by the Bertha’s Restaurant team from a food truck stationed outside the Museum. Coffee is a must, of course, along with a varied, seasonal range of dishes and beverages.

The open-air season at the Mercedes-Benz Museum begins with the classic car event “Classics & Coffee”. Attractions include the big Children’s and Family Day, the “Stadtkultur” (City Culture) series of events and the open-air cinema.
