Seeing and being seen – in 2022 it’s still what Classics & Coffee, the popular classic car get-together on the premises in front of the Mercedes-Benz Museum, is all about. The event has been established for a number of years now: whether the vehicles sport the Mercedes star or not, the recipe for the success of this event involves people driving up in a classic or young classic car, meeting like-minded individuals and chatting about the cars on display.
The majority of the Classics & Coffee guests who bring along vehicles are from the surrounding region, although there are occasionally visitors from abroad, too. On a fine day there may well be a few hundred such enthusiasts on-site, transforming the hill outside the Museum into one big all-brands motor show with a particular flair all its own. Pre-registration is not necessary.
Vehicles with H-plates, as well as young classics which are more than 20 years old in well-maintained condition, may park free of charge on the Museum hill. Visitors without classic cars are of course also welcome! They can also enjoy being part of the classic car scene and chatting with the vehicle owners.
