John & Patty's Vacation
Taking "European Delivery" of Patty's new Mercedes

Germany, - We arrived on British Airlines at Frankfurt and took the Train to Stuttgart. In Stuttgart we stayed in the heart of the city at the Hotel Graf Zeppelin. The next day we went to the Mercedes Benz's factory just outside of Stuttgart, at the new Sindelfingen Delivery Center. 

This is the European Delivery Website for Mercedes Benz.  Lori Quinlan, European Delivery Travel Consultant for Mercedes Benz was very helpful during the entire process even while we were traveling in Europe.

This is a state of the art center just opened in the last few years. We checked-in and had lunch, reviewed a video (In English), then took one of the most impressive plant tours I have every been on, a true highlight of the Trip (All in English by a Polish tour guide). 

The next day we began our Black Forest Rally Trip down to Baden Baden on the Rhine River overlooking France. We stayed at one of the nicest places one can image Schlosshotel Buhlerhohe. This was a true example of European service and castle -like experience.
