Unimog Museum
Ranked #1 of 7 things to do in Gaggenau
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 December 2014 via mobile

Its a small museun with diferent unimog trucks that show how different this can be. You can pay for a ride in one to see the capabilities for climbing. There is a small cafeteria for eating something.
Its close to baden baden, is worth the visit.

This was a great first stop on the Route 500 Schwarzwald Hochstrasse. OK it was a slight detour and a good way to avoid Baden Baden traffic. The museum is small and modern. If you're a car/truck enthusiast, you'll find it interesting. I'm not, but it was still cool to skim through and see all the different vehicles and applications of their technology. But the MUST DO is to buy the ticket for the ride-along tour. Our driver was a jolly 60+ year old who described every function. It was all in German but it was fun to see his delight. The ride is about 10-12 minutes in total but it's just amazing what the vehicle can do. I was surprised there wasn't a dealership right afterwards ; )

Being able to drive one of these ultra cool vehicles to its limits in a controlled environment is one of the most fun ways to spend a day. Very helpful staff and co-driver. Although the machine is not the most simple vehicle to operate, The training makes the experience easy and a blast. Very impressive to see what these things can do. Splurge for the extended drive... Well worth it.

This was a spur-of-the-moment addition to our itinerary. We had heard about the Unimog museum on one of our car factory tours (Mercedes, Porsche, or AMG) and saw that we'd be traveling to the nearby-town of Baden-Baden (about 20 min to Gaggenau), so we added this stop. FUN! I'm not into trucks, but these old Unimogs have so much personality. And I LOVED riding a Unimog--you need to pay extra for this, but it is definitely worth it--makes you feel like a 5-year-old kid!

We visited here because of a promise to my 16 year old grandson and it was really great. The number of vehicles starting with the historical pre-Mercedes Benz vehicles, the versatility displayed by all the implements and attachments and the information given with each display was very well done. The ride along in a modern vehicle over a well designed obstacle/off-road course, experiencing just a fraction of the vehicles capabilities was worth the visit alone. You can experience this museum in about 60 to 120 minutes, so it will not bore those with you that are not as enthused about off-roading as you may be.
