Full description
Stroll through Bad Cannstatt while actors in costumes will show you the spa center of Europe. Listen in awe as the fairy tale comes true and the Daimler star rises over the Neckar river. Learn all about the baker's son and the young orphan who became friends for life and were willing to go through fire and water for their visions. Individual mobility, that is exactly what Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach are tirelessly working for. While Bertha Maybach muses about the often hazardous outings by motor carriage, Martha Daimler proudly spreads the word about her brother's brave heroic deed: He was the first test pilot of the riding car which scorched the bottom of his pants. Hear about the difficulties and obstacles the two had to master and how they protected themselves from spies. On November 10, 1885, Paul, the eldest of Daimler's sons, made the three-kilometer journey from Cannstatt to Untertürkheim on a wooden two-wheeler with support wheels. The dream comes true and brings the breakthrough that changed the world.
