Mercedes-Benz Museum congratulates BMW on its hundred-year anniversary with an invitation from 8 to 13 March 2016 employees of Bayerische Motorenwerke (BMW) founded on 7 March 1916, will enjoy free admission to the museum in Stuttgart. As a special gesture, all those guests from the BMW workforce who turn up in a vehicle produced by the Munich-based company will be allowed to park on the hill directly in front of the museum in the scheduled week.
This will not be such a rare spectacle, as numerous classic BMW vehicles also visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum at the popular “Cars & Coffee” classic car meetings which are open to all brands. “Cars & Coffee” forms part of the museum’s successful summer programme, which features numerous highlights this year to mark its ten-year anniversary. Finally, on the culinary front, the restaurant will additionally serve up a special Swabian speciality for the first 50 BMW employees at the end of their tour of 130 years of automotive history.
Though, we have always seen the three german brands BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi competing each other with the likes of the segments one has ever launched. The ad wars have always been something bring these brand to all new level, but the most important thing you will ever notice is the “Respect”, “Respect for a rich history”. Bayerische Motorenwerke (BMW) was founded in Munich 100 years ago, on 7 March 1916. This marked the birth of a now world-renowned brand which contributes to Germany's excellent international reputation in the automotive industry.
Congratulating to the BMW, Mr Ralf Glaser, Head of Press and Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Classic said, “We warmly congratulate the globally renowned company BMW on its anniversary and invite all employees of BMW AG to discover the complete history of the automobile at the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The unique exhibition at our museum, which opened at its new location ten years ago, takes visitors throughout the history of the automobile from its earliest beginnings – always in the context of the given historical and cultural background and contemporary innovative developments.”
Just to add to your knowledge, founding of BMW occurred in the eventful early heyday of automotive history. Almost 30 years before, Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler had invented the automobile independently of one another in 1886. And ten years later, Daimler-Benz AG arose with the new Mercedes-Benz brand from the amalgamation of Benz & Cie. and Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft.
