Mercedes-Benz Classic: Fresh clues to the birthplace of Carl Benz
After deep historical investigation led by Mercedes-Benz, the enigma that shrouded the details about the exact birthplace of Carl Benz vanished away, thus closing an important gap in the biography of the prominent figure. It was concluded that the inventor of world's first autonomously-powered vehicle saw the light of day on 25th November 1844 in the German city of Karlsruhe, specifically in the Mühlburg district on Rheinstrasse 22. The house he was born in no longer exists, as it was knocked down in the 1950s to allow for the widening of the street. At this time, a department store functions at the site. In order to mark the importance of the location, there are solid plans to construct a birthplace memorial near the current building.
