How to get from Porsche factory to Mercedes Museum - in Stuttgart

We have a morning tour of the Porsche factory reserved for September; afterwards, wondering hw we would get to the Mercedes Musuem. We won't have a car and will be relying on public transportation or taxis. Any idea what a taxi would cost? Thanks.

It has been a few years since my son and I went to the Porsche factory and the Mercedes museum, but we took the train to both. I don't know if the Porsche factory has moved. I remember reading something about that. The Porsche museum and factory were located on the same grounds when I went. The museum was small at that time. It was an easy walk to both after we got off the train. I think you'll go back to Stuttgart to get the train to either of them.

Porsche Tour
S-Bahn #6 to Neuwirtshaus



MBenz Museum

S-Bahn 1 to Neckarstadion



MB Factory tour

weekdays only
S-Bahn to Sindelfingen - station right at plant

The S-Bahns i believe all serve the main Stuttgart train station.

We had to postpone our trip to April (I fell and hit my head the day before we were to leave). the good news about that is the new Porsche museum will be open when we go!

Hello OTC:

Sorry to hear about you misfortune, but in terms of the Porsche Museum, you are better off. We visited the old Porsche Museum (at the site of the factory) about 2 years ago. We took a cab from the Hbf in Stuttgart and it was about a 30 minute, one-way drive in non rush hour. Can't remember the price for the round trip but it was significant. If I had known about the S-bahn, as PQ describes, I would have surely used it.

The old museum was a great disappointment. One modest sized room with low ceiling in which about a dozen Porsche models were displayed. No audio visual stuff or detailed explanations. Good luck. Gradyghost

The names of the S-Bahn stations have changed, which is a national pastime.. never big changes, but few add-ons or alternations to keep people confused. What is in brackets is now part of the official name of the stations, respectively.

For Porsche Museum:
S6 Neuwirthsplatz (Porscheplatz)

For Mercedes-Benz Museum:
S1 NeckarPark (Mercedes-Benz)

To go from one place to the other always means to change S-Bahn at Stuttgart Main Station (i.e. "Hauptbahnhof&quot.
