    Day 1, Tuesday, September 10

    Chicago-Munich (or Frankfurt)

    We are leaving Chicago late afternoon on your non-stop flight to Frankfurt. Cocktails and dinner will be served en route.

    Day 2, Wednesday, September 11

    Frankfurt-Stuttgart

    One hour before landing they will serve breakfast. After checking through immigration and customs you will board your next flight to Stuttgart. After checking into the hotel, the afternoon is free for your own activities. We will meet for dinner at 7:30 and probably will call it a night after that.

    Day 3, Thursday, September 12

    Sightseeing in Stuttgart

    The Hop On, Hop Off bus service is the best way to get around in a city. On its route you will see the Palace Square, the TV Tower, Marienplatz Square, Karlshill and so on. Stay on the bus for the complete tour and then get off on the second round, wherever you want.


    Day 4, Friday, September 13

    First Marklin Day

    We take the train from Stuttgart to Göppingen. It is only a short ride of less than a half hour. I would recommend doing the factory tour and watching the assembly of a locomotive on the first day.


    Day 5, Saturday, September 14

    Second Marklin Day

    We take again the train from Stuttgart to Göppingen for the second Marklin day. This is a good day for the real trains. You can get into the cab of different locomotives and take rides on historic trains.



    Day 6, Sunday, September 15

    Third Marklin Day

    Heading back to Göppingen for the 3 rd day. If you haven’t visited the included International Model Train Exhibition now is the time. There will be over 140 dealers showing their items. To conclude the Marklin Days come back to the station and watch the locomotive parade.


    Day 7, Monday, September 16

    Rack Railway to the TV Tower

    We will take the Stuttgart Rack Railway to the TV tower. It is the only urban rack railway in Germany. The world’s first TV tower was built in the 1950s and was controversial in the beginning because of the high costs. Surprisingly the costs were offset within a few years by just the admission fees. The tower is 217 meters tall and we will enjoy coffee and cake in the 150 m high restaurant.


    Day 8, Tuesday, September 17

    Mercedes Museum

    This is my real highlight on our trip. The Mercedes Museum celebrates more than 130 years of automotive history with over 1500 exhibits on 9 floors. At the heart of the exhibit are 160 vehicles: some of the first ever built, auto racing legends, and prototype cars of the future.


    Day 9, Wednesday, September 18

    Stuttgart-Chicago

    Like all good things, this tour will come to an end today. Breakfast is early in the morning with hotel check out to follow. We will transfer to Stuttgart Airport and fly back home.
