By train:

The most convenient way to reach Stuttgart and the new Mercedes-Benz Museum is by train. Stuttgart is linked to all major cities, and the train stops directly in the city center. At the main station, take the S1 subway train for two stops, getting off at Daimler Stadion and following the signs to the museum.

By air:

The distance from the Stuttgart airport to the city center is about 13 km or 8 miles. The subway train is the least expensive and, depending on the volume of traffic, the quickest way into the city (about 27 minutes travel time).

The S2 and S3 lines leave from the lower ground floor of the airport. At the Hauptbahnhof (Stuttgart's main train station), take the S1 subway train for two stops, getting off at Daimler Stadion and following the signs to the museum.

Alternatively, you'll find taxi ranks immediately outside Terminals 1 and 3 of the airport, on both the arrival and departure levels. If no taxi is available, you can call the taxi center in Stuttgart at 0 711 55 10 000 or airport taxi services at 0 711 9 48 44 09.
