Our Mercedes-Benz & Friends 2013 tour is taking place right in keeping with the motto “Nordens stjärnor” – the stars of the North. Once again we have arranged an especially attractive trip for you. You will experience pure excitement combined with enjoyment, relaxation and many unforgettable impressions. Our route begins north of Gothenburg and leads us along Skärgården northwards towards Strömstad. From there, our journey goes eastwards into the interior of the country, driving past lakes and through forests. Dive into the green landscape of the middle of the country, and experience at first hand the picture-postcard landscapes, before we reach Stockholm, the urban metropolis and pearl of Sweden.
Slow down on solitary roads and look forward to meeting the Swedes – open, tolerant and natural people. Be inspired at Mercedes-Benz & Friends 2013 by a Swedish proverb: “En tyst minut är en lång minut” – A silent moment is a long moment.
The Kingdom of Sweden has an area of around 450,000 km2 and thus is the largest Scandinavian country. The Ice Age contributed a great deal to the appearance of the Swedish landscape. The weight of the ice crusts flattened the cliffs and, for example, allowed the creation of the well-known Skärgården formation of the East and West Coast. Sweden is extremely varied! Look forward to gentle hilly landscapes, inviting red wooden houses, huge areas of forest and numerous lakes. Sweden means a lot of space for a small number of inhabitants and plenty of living space for animals. An intact road network leads through the extensive forests and landscapes. Travelling the solitary roads by car is a relaxed and tranquil driving experience. It’s not only your body that rides; above all, your senses and your spirit have time to travel with you.
It’s well known that the way to a person’s heart is through his stomach. Sweden’s cuisine has several things on offer that do justice to this claim and spoil your senses at the same time. Look forward to enjoying northern fish specialties – freshly caught, it goes without saying! One of the really great highlights of the trip is the famous “Vasamuseet” in Stockholm. With its exciting atmosphere, this maritime museum will offer an unforgettable setting in which you can review your impressions once again and the images of the kilometres just travelled. Experience the last point of our trip in front of a historical backdrop and marvel at an imposing piece of Swedish history.
At the end of each day, relax in our selected hotels, some rural ones, some urban ones, but all of them stylish and featuring individual character. Get a feeling for the Swedish way of life and hospitality together with and through Mercedes-Benz & Friends.
