Hi buddy thumbsup

Can we do both and be finished by 2pm?

Thinking of getting the 2pm train to Munich to go see Bayern play Schalke at 17:30.

Are they far apart?

Get there when the museum opens and try to get a tour for 11am and you'll be out by 1pm. The factory is across the road from the museum and tours start in the museum lobby.

NB: If you're in the PCGB take your card and you'll get in free.

Jin, as previously posted , just over the road, book ASAP it's a must, Mercedes museum and Porsche museum offer a discount if doing both not sure how you do it though.
Mercedes museum is awesome btw.

Take the Porsche museum ticket to the merc museum and show it for a discount (it showed the offer on the back of the ticket when we went this summer).. note they are 6 miles apart. Neither are expensive.

Taxi from v8 hotel to museum was 20 mins Thumb

This link has details on museum and tours, but it says factory open Mon-Fri.
