With the G-Class Experience Center near Graz, we have created a “must see” for every G-Class enthusiast. In the hometown of the G-Class, fans can now experience what the icon was built for – the most demanding challenges. At slopes up to 100%, inclined angles up to 35° as well as water and mud crossings, the G-Class is showing its wildest side at the G-Class Experience Center.
Experience the various facets of the G-Class.
Our “G-Class Experience Center” gives G-Class enthusiasts and off-road specialists all the thrills they need. Test your personal limits with our G-Class fleet – by driving these automotive icons in the extreme conditions that they were developed for. Accompanied by our professional instructors you will get the chance to experience the amazing off-road and on-road capabilities of the G-Class.
With the legend into off-road terrain.
Get behind the wheel yourself and experience the climbing ability of the G-Class on different surfaces - right to the top of the “G-Rock”. Give the G-Class a mud bath in the forest without getting your feet wet, navigate the Schöckl Trail, and experience the G-Class at 30 degrees – and we are not talking about the outside temperature! Manoeuvre the G-Class through deep water and experience sheer driving pleasure.
- Slopes up to 100%
- Inclined angles up to 35°
- Axle twist
585 emotions per second.
Switch to on-road mode, get into the Mercedes-AMG G 63, and experience what it feels like to accelerate with 585 hp on tap. How about a dance with the G-Class? We invite you to waltz in our dynamic area. On the handling section of our on-road course you will learn how to manoeuvre the G-Class through slaloms as well as how to brake and swerve in dicey situations.
- Parcours (Slalom, Brakes, Dodge)
- Skid pad
It was a special matter to me to participate in creating an outstanding experience for all G-Class fans. Every G-Class is “Schöckl-Proved” – after an unforgettable day at the G-Class Experience Center, with passion and excitement for the icon, you will be “G-Proved”. Thereby you will be prepared for your own adventure off the roads, where “the G”, in my opinion, is the most fun.
