Summer dance parties at the Mercedes-Benz Museum: Salsa under the stars

On four Saturdays in July and August, three of them in the open air, the Mercedes-Benz Museum is organising dance parties with Latin American rhythms. The first event will take place on 14 July. The other dates are 21 July, 28 July and 4 August. From 7.00 p.m. onwards there will be free Salsa lessons for beginners. The dance parties begin at 8.00 p.m., with live DJs and salsa, bachata, merengue and reggae. Owing to the World Cup transmission on the open-air stage, the first salsa evening will be held in the Great Hall. The event will also be held in the Museum if the weather is poor. Prior registration is not necessary.

Stuttgart. The summer dance parties at the Mercedes-Benz Museum were already a great success last year. Around 500 couples took part on each evening. The second series is due to start now: on Saturday, 14 July 2018, and afterwards on 21 July, 28 July and 4 August, there will once again be “Salsa under the Stars”. For lovers of Latin American rhythms, dancing under the stars on the open-air stage is a sheer joy. There is room for up to 600 people on the dance floor.

From 7.00 p.m. on each occasion, a free introductory dance course will be provided to teach beginners the major steps and movements of original Cuban salsa. The party itself starts at 8.00 p.m. Various DJs will be playing salsa, bachata, merengue and reggae numbers. Not only couples are welcome: singletons can also come to the dance course and party.

Cocktails such as mojito, caipirinha, Cuba libre and other refreshing drinks, snacks and specials are available in the ALL TIME STARS summer lounge. During the dance parties, this will be open until late in the evening. More information is available at


“Salsa under the Stars” is part of the extensive summer programme at the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The full programme can be found on the Museum’s homepage at
