Feeling the itch to Instagram some pretty cool (or pretty and cool) cars in an amazing setting?

Well, you may want to book a ticket to Dusseldorf and head to Hattingen from August 25 to 26, as the Schone Sterne is going to give you just what you wanted. And you better have a camera handy.

Schone Sterne 2018 Mercedes Brand Gathering


Literally translated as “beautiful stars”, the Schone Sterne promises to bring together Mercedes-Benz models from all eras. From ultra rare classics up to and including modern, high-performance Mercs, all will be at Schone Sterne.

What makes the event unique is that instead of gathering all these cars in a parking lot or an exhibition hall, Schone Sterne is held at the old Heinrichshutte iron works facility in the town of Hattingen, Germany. The setting provides a uniquely industrial backdrop for the pristinely-maintained automobiles wearing the three-pointed star.

Mercedes-Benz, the major sponsor of the event, will also be showcasing (and selling) classic automobiles on site as a part of the All-Time Stars trading platform. Some of the vehicles they will have on site will include a Smart Crossblade, a 1982 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE, and a 1998 Mercedes-Benz SL 320 Special Edition.

If you do go, make sure your camera (or smartphone) has a full battery and plenty of space to store some great images.
