Karl Benz House.
The first two-stroke engine in1879; the first car in1886; axle-pivot steering in 1893: The career of Carl Benz is marked by countless automotive milestones. The permanent exhibition at the lovingly restored Karl Benz House in Ladenburg gives you some idea of the extent of his creative power. Exhibits, documents, personal memorabilia and models from his working life reflect the passion of a man who to the very end remained true to his personal motto: “Inventing is much more agreeable than having already invented.” The genius of Carl Benz lives on in the conferences organized by the Daimler and Benz Foundation for scientists from all over the world. A partner of Daimler AG, the foundation is based here.
