The automobile industry, which has been around for more than a hundred years celebrated it's 125 years of history last May 7-8, 2011 here in Stuttgart. A special exhibition took place at Schlossplatz in Stuttgart, Germany and many companies related to the automobile industry showed many upcoming and promising technology.
There was a festive air at the Schlossplatz as there was also another festival going on: The International Animated Film Festival. It was also Mother's Day so that the mood became more festive as people went from one booth to another to get information and collect free items like shopping bags, promotional pens, advertising flags, even buckets. There were also cars of every age, shape and purpose on exhibit at the palace grounds. There's also different surprises for the kids, balloons and small stuffed toys being the most popular.
To get to know more about the history of cars, one can always visit the many car museums here in Germany. There's the Porsche Museum and the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart and the BMW Museum in Munich.
