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 date back to 1930. The Motorworld Group, which has also received several international awards for its projects, develops, builds and operates worlds of experience dedicated to mobile passion, and as a whole is considered to be the world’s largest brand-neutral mobility centre. With over 40 of the world’s most valuable and exclusive vehicle brands, it brings together the brand who’s who of the entire mobility industry.
The first location was Motorworld Region Stuttgart in Böblingen, which opened in 2009 and has been continually expanded several times. 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. It is home to one of the most significant collections in motorsport: The private collection of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher.
With Motorworld München, an automotive world of experiences in a new dimension was opened in May 2021. An imposing meeting place for car lovers and bikers of every hue.
