Incorporated into the new Mercedes-Benz World, the Mercedes-Benz Museum invites the visitor to an unusual reconnaissance tour of the company’s history and the automobile.  

The basic structure of the architecturally remarkable museum building is in the shape of a shamrock. In the centre of the arched form, a three-cornered atrium is created, surrounded by the adjoining exhibition rooms. In an enormous double helix, two corridors wind through the various levels with an exhibition area of 16,500 m². Visitors start their tour not on the ground floor but travel by lift to the highest point of the museum and walk down the spiral, whereby the exhibition shows the cars in order of their age. The visitor can follow the development of the car and the Mercedes legend from above to below in chronological order.  

Even when entering the museum, the GEZE TSA 325 revolving doors with the GEZE all-glass system GGS allow the visitor a panoramic view of the generously dimensioned entrance hall and the exhibits. The revolving doors appear to belong to the glass façade and harmonise exceptionally well with the particular architectural style of the museum. The integrated all-glass system IGG is applied on several swing doors.

The Mercedes-Benz Museum has been awarded the Gold Design Price for Germany.
