Starting point: Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen
Stuttgart is one of the German cities that are often underestimated, and yet, the capital of Baden-Württemberg offers a delightful lifestyle, wine, beautiful countryside all around – and in Zuffenhausen there is even a Porsche plant where tours are offered. That makes it a great starting point for a trip with the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid¹ across Germany, through old university towns, through Hamburg, Denmark, across the Baltic Sea on one of the longest bridges in the world, past rocky cliffs and moose along Sweden’s west coast, via Gothenburg to Oslo, Norway’s capital.
Hanseatic flair: Overnight and gas break in Hamburg
The Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid uses gas and electricity and is extremely flexible to drive as a result – just perfect for a long trip with leading edge engine technology. It’s 660 kilometers via Göttingen to Hamburg, to spend the night, fill up the tank with gas and recharge the battery. Stroll along the port, enjoy a bread roll filled with fish and marvel at the Elbphilharmonie, while your car re-charges its battery after a gas stop – for example, at the e-charging station in the Grosse Bäckerstrasse with two type 2 sockets. You might also want to take in the musical “König der Löwen (The Lion King)” in the evening. The port city has a lot to offer! In the morning you can eat a fresh Franzbrötchen, a typical Hamburg cinnamon pastry, for breakfast, and continue on your travels to Scandinavia, refreshed and rested!
Routes across the water: Ferry and the Öresund Bridge
Then on through the city of Lübeck and wide open countryside to Puttgarden, where the ferry is waiting to take you to Rødby. From there it isn’t far to Copenhagen, where the perfect opportunity for a break presents itself before tackling the almost eight-kilometer-long, breathtaking Öresund Bridge, which spans the Baltic from Denmark to Sweden. Having arrived on Swedish soil, the journey continues on towards Gothenburg. Enjoy the peaceful landscape – and keep a lookout for moose!
Venice of the North: Overnight and gas stop in Gothenburg
Gothenburg is Sweden’s second largest city after Stockholm – and still something of an insider tip. You arrive here after around 1,320 kilometers. A network of canals and various battery charging opportunities pervade the city, old streets invite visitors to stroll and take in the sights. It’s not advisable to park the car directly in the city center, however – parking is generally very expensive there. Cars can be parked and re-charged at Preem (Charge & Drive), for example, at Rantorget 1 in 41664 Gothenburg. Then it’s time to start exploring the city. How about, for example, a “kanelbullar” (cinnamon pastry) in the lovely Haga district? A little boat ride through the canals in the city center to the port is also very worthwhile.
Trolls, fjords and e-cars: Oslo
If there is still enough time the next morning, you can take a trip to the beautiful skerry islands off the Gothenburg coast. Fresh fish from the sea perhaps? Then it’s off again to Oslo, the capital city of a country which doesn’t want to allow any more conventionally motorized vehicles starting in 2025. There is hardly another city in the world where there are already so many vehicles with alternative engines, whether e-cars, fuel-cell cars or hybrids like the Porsche Panamera. There’s a correspondingly high number of charging stations around. Those who want to explore the city and its fortress, the opera and beautiful parks first can also do the charging later – that’s the advantage of the hybrid. Those who want to continue on to deep fjords and high mountains, over serpentine passes and along the jagged coast – go right ahead. The gas and charging station network is really well-developed, and by now, the Porsche Panamera will have shown how little fuel it needs and how much driving enjoyment it provides.
