A journey back through the history of Porsche. A vision becomes reality. Immediately next to the headquarters of 
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, you can today find one of the most spectacular car museums in the world. The Porsche Museum. Be inspired by over 80 vehicles on our 5,600 square metre exhibition area. 
We book a guided museum tour. The Museum guide will take you on an hour-long tour through the exhibition and give you exclusive insights into the history of Porsche, in English.

More than 80 vehicles and many small exhibits are on display at the Porsche Museum in a unique ambience. In addition to world-famous, iconic vehicles such as the 356, 550, 911, and 917, the exhibits include some of the outstanding technical achievements of Professor Ferdinand Porsche from the early 20th century. Even then, the name of Porsche stood for the commitment never to be satisfied with a technical solution that fails to fully meet or exceed all of its requirements, including opportunities for further improvement.

Giorgio, Domenico, Ralph, Jimmy and Miuccia look forward to meeting you in the home town of Hugo Boss.
With many premium and luxury brands presented in flagship outlet stores OUTLETCITY METZINGEN offers an
incredible shopping experience. International brands like Armani, Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, Gucci,
Levi’s and Tommy Hilfiger offer an excellent product selection with prices reduced by up to 70 % throughout
the year (compared to the former RRP if there is any).

The picturesque town Metzingen 30 km south of Stuttgart and about 2 hours from Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich 
is one of the most successful factory outlet locations in Europe with approximately 4 million visitors from 185 nations every year.

However, there is much more, Metzingen offers its guests. The small town with its historic center worth seeing that is
combined with modern award-winning architecture is embedded in a biosphere area and offers a large number of
touristic attractions. A centuries-old wine growing tradition and first-class catering invite visitors to stay. From an
Italian restaurant in a modern glass cube to home-style cooking in a rustic atmosphere, Metzingen leaves nothing
to be desired.
