Dr. Carl Benz Car Museum.
How proud the inhabitants of Ladenburg must have been when one man singlehandedly turned their town into a synonym for progress. This man was Carl Benz. It is not hard to imagine the looks of amazement on the faces of all those who in 1908 witnessed the first C. Benz Söhne automobiles leaving the production line from what was originally conceived as an engine assembly plant. And how wonderful that this memorial to mobility has now been restored to its former splendour – as the lovingly renovated industrial monument and museum, the Dr. Carl Benz Car Museum. Star exhibits such as the last two C. Benz Söhne vehicles built in Ladenburg and many other classic vehicles from the Benz and Mercedes-Benz brands provide first-hand testimony of our automotive past. A wealth of historic documents and exhibits also help revive memories of the automotive pioneer Carl Benz.
