With a history dating back to 1886, Mercedes-Benz is the world’s oldest motor manufacturer. The brand’s ongoing success story right through to the present day demonstrates, more than anything else, that vehicles from the Mercedes-Benz brand prevail at all times, despite the greatest turbulences caused by technical revolutions, ever-changing customer demands and new legal requirements. The foundation for this success in the past and in the future was – and will continue to be –laid, above all, by the people in the company. Mercedes-Benz employees develop new vehicle generations with the highest precision, ensuring automotive manufacture at the highest quality level. They also adopt new, unusual approaches in research and present the results in vehicles which, more often than not, cause quite a stir. The exhibition section named “The Fascination of Technology” grants an insight into the complex processes of vehicle development, giving visitors access to the fascinating world “behind the star”.
