You will be impressed if you are standing in front of the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. The massive building of the museum looks so light, almost like floating in the air. It’s resting on only three V-shaped pillars. The contemporary design of the building continues in the building. In a plain, almost puristic surrounding, the development of the Porsche brand and the sleek sports cars is illustrated.
Actually, we are not the typical visitors to the Porsche Museum. We do not even own a car currently. The next vehicle we will buy will be anything but a sleek sports car. We are on a road trip around Southern Germany and have just returned from the Abenteuer & Allrad fair in Bad Kissingen, where we collected ideas for our future off-road camping vehicle.
The weather we are experiencing during our road trip is not the best, and so a visit to the Porsche Museum is a perfect alternative to escape the rainy weather. If you drive your own Porsche, a visit to the museum is a must. If you are interested in sports cars or racing, a visit is probably on your wish list. And if you visit with kids, their hearts will beat higher once they see all the shiny sports cars. We are also impressed by the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen and can highly recommend a visit.
What you can see at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen
The Porsche Museum is located at Porscheplatz 1. This is exactly where it all began and where, even today, the headquarters of Dr. Ing. H. C. F. Porsche AG is located. In an almost sterile exhibition area of 5’600 square meters, the company history is explained based on around 80 vehicles.
The museum workshop is located in the entrance hall. During workdays you can watch the mechanics working on the museum vehicles. In the Porsche archive, the historical memory of the Porsche group is located. Besides innumerable documents there is an image archive with over 5 million images. The museum shop offers all kinds of fan articles and souvenirs of the Porsche brand.
You can explore the Porsche Museum on your own. With an audio guide you can access lots of information about the history of the different vehicles in the museum. The common thread through the exhibition is the “Porsche Idea”, which leads you in chronological order through the company’s history. If you prefer to get a deeper insight into the company’s history, you can choose from a range of different guided tours.
