Breaking new record mark: Mercedes-Benz Museum with 10,000,000 visitors
On July 2, 2019 shortly after 10 a.m. Clemens Bergmann purchased the ten millionth entry ticket to the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The 30 year old information designer from Stuttgart was accompanied by his friend Jamie Morgan-Ward from Wellington, New Zealand. For the New Zealander it is the first visit to Germany.
Museum manager Monja Büdke gave the two surprised guests a warm welcome. After that, they took part in a guided tour and were delighted to be able to take a seat in a Mercedes-Benz 2,5- l Streamliner W 196 R from 1955.
The Mercedes-Benz Museum is an international place of mobility culture: since last summer, people from all 193 countries of the United Nations have been guests at the museum.
In 2018, there were a total of 834,121 visitors, of which around 60 per cent came from abroad. Most of the international guests in 2018 came from China, followed by visitors from the United States of America and France.
India was amongst the top five international visitor nations for the first time.
