Ideal Partners

Can you do us a favour?

Eight private individuals joined together to keep up the memory of Bertha Benz - Karl-Friedrich Kaul, Marie Kissel, Ulf Lempfert, Joseph Lingen, Edgar Meyer, Frauke Meyer, Kristian Meyer und Gerd Sperka.

So if you approve of our initiative and want to contribute to Bertha Benz receiving an appropriate place in history, please also tell your friends about this initiative.

For example, you can include a reference to this website in your next e-mails and SMS messages. After all, the memory of Bertha Benz can only be preserved if this project is supported by many enthusiasts! Thank you very much!

And if you are a female driver and hear men say again "typical woman driver", then you should proudly mention Bertha Benz and this website, because the first long-distance trip ever undertaken by car was made by a woman, and mastered with great success.

And if you should come to North Baden in the future, we would like to invite you to take the "Bertha Benz Memorial Route" and follow the traces of Bertha Benz and her extraordinarily courageous journey. You will always be welcome!
