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.
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.
The classic car meetings will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Museum until 8 October 2023.
