MOTORWORLD Köln | Rheinland: Hotspot of automotive culture
Motorworld Köln | Rhineland opened in June 2018 at the historic Butzweilerhof, the former “hub of the West”.

Here visitors will find dealers in classic cars and new vehicles from the premium segment, clubs, specialised workshops and other service providers, lifestyle shops, glass parking boxes, as well as a broad variety of restaurants and cafés. As a special highlight for all Formula One fans, Motorworld Köln | Rheinland is home to one of the world’s most notable motor sport collections: the official collection of original memorabilia of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher. A large number of conference and meeting rooms, the listed entrance hall, the exceptional V8 Hotel, and the impressive 4-Takt-Hangar with its capacity for up to 4,000 guests, round off the facilities for hosting unforgettable events.

About the MOTORWORLD Group
The independent MOTORWORLD Group emerged from the DÜNKEL Holding corporate group based in Schemmerhofen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany). The origins of the family-run company go back to 1933. The Motorworld Group develops, builds and operates experience worlds that are dedicated to mobile passion.
The first location was Motorworld Region Stuttgart in Böblingen, which opened in 2009 and has since been expanded several times, winning several awards along the way. Further projects and activities under the MOTORWORLD® brand have been initiated in recent years. Following on with the same concept as Motorworld Region Stuttgart, Motorworld Köln | Rheinland opened in June 2018. Two further locations are currently under development: Motorworld München and Motorworld Zeche Ewald-Ruhr, Herten. The starting signal for the construction of Motorworld Mallorca is due to be given shortly.
The portfolio will be complemented by the Motorworld Manufaktur locations in Berlin, Metzingen, Rüsselsheim and Zurich. As their names suggest, the space for mobile passion at these locations will focus in particular on good old handicraft skills.
The Motorworld idea also regularly goes on tour, including to the annual classic car trade fairs Motorworld Classics Berlin and Motorworld Classics Bodensee in Friedrichshafen, to scene events such as the Motorworld Oldtimertage at Fürstenfeld (near Munich), Motorworld HistoriCar in Duisburg, as well as in numerous other guises. From 2019, the IAA Heritage by MOTORWORLD will also be part of the IAA in Frankfurt.
