Mercedes Benz Museum Stuttgart

Other than a work out at Wasen our weekend in Stuttgart was filled with a museum, a squash festival and a walk around the town. First up was the Mercedes Benz Museum. Stuttgart is home to two car giants, Mercedes and Porsche, both have museums in the city but we opted for Mercedes as it was closer to the beer festival site.

Which is terrible if you ask me, especially considering it the flight was really quick! We spent a whirlwind 24 hours in Geneva and I can safely say it won’t be the last time! Unlike 99% of our trips this was not one organised by myself which did leave me a little uneasy but I… View Post
