Autostadt in Wolfsburg
With the slogan “People, cars and what moves them”, the Autostadt in Wolfsburg welcomes up to two million visitors a year. Experience an exciting and informative day in the Autostadt. There is something for everyone here!
The heart of the Autostadt and the starting point for your visit is the piazza.
The large glass hall is dominated by a floating aluminum lattice globe with a diameter of twelve meters. From here it goes to the different areas of the Autostadt.
On the left it goes to the corporate world, with interesting facts about the environment, logistics, sustainable management, but also cycles of car production and car design. The highlight here is the “Green Level” exhibition where up-to-date information on the subject of the environment was compiled in an interactive and playful manner. The focus is on the three dimensions of sustainability: economy, ecology and social issues.
In the 25-hectare outdoor area, visitors can expect eight pavilions, among other things, which present the individual brands belonging to the VW Group. The architecture of the individual buildings already expresses the respective brand philosophy. Here the visitor gets an overview of the technical developments as well as the entire product range.
The secret star among the pavilions is the Premium Clubhouse. Upon entering, the eye immediately falls on a fully mirrored one Bugatti Veyron April 16
The Autostadt park invites you to relax and unwind in summer. The harbor basin is transformed into an island of relaxation in the summer months. Enjoy an ice cream on the beach or take a pedal boat or solar boat through the harbor basin.
Those who prefer to be chauffeured should do a maritime panorama tour on the Mittelland Canal with the FGS Haveland.
Porsche and Audi with new pavilions
On June 12, 2012 the new one opened in the Autostadt in Wolfsburg Porsche pavilion its gates. The new exhibition building covers 1,400 square meters and has a curved and matt shimmering roof structure that is intended to be reminiscent of the silhouette of a Porsche. At the center of the exhibition are 25 vehicle models that document the development of the sports car manufacturer. Starting with the Porsche 356 from 1948, Porsche is showing 1: 3 scale models from the first series up to three current sports cars from Zuffenhausen. Themed films, sound stories and media installations are intended to provide additional insights
After a three-month renovation phase, the newly designed one also opened at the end of March 2012 Audi pavilion its doors. The interior of the Audi world of experience has been completely redesigned. The focus of the exhibition is now on the fields of innovation
e-tron, ultra, connect and design. Visitors can see the A1 e-tron, the R8 GT Spyder and the A8 live and learn about the latest design icon, the Audi quattro concept. Via the so-called Audi Sphere, an interaction sphere, visitors to the Audi pavilion can activate content and exhibits that are of interest to them themselves and thus actively help shape their stay in the Audi pavilion.
Another highlight is the Zeithaus. In addition to the company’s own brands, icons from other brands are also presented here. You can marvel at style-defining car models from over 50 different brands from all generations.
If you want to go high, you should definitely take part in a tower tour. The landmarks of the Autostadt tower 48 meters high into the Wolfsburg sky. A total of up to 800 vehicles are stored in the two towers, waiting to be picked up. The logistics and processes within the towers are fully automated. In a six-person cabin, visitors can experience the action up close on a 15-minute drive through the towers. Once at the top there is a sensational view of the Autostadt and the surrounding area.
The pick-up is a special experience. Car collectors can collect their new VW and Seat vehicles directly from the Autostadt. In addition to personal support, you get an insight into the Autostadt. A factory tour can also be booked in combination with collection.
13 restaurants – nine operated by Mövenpick – offer the opportunity for an enjoyable gourmet break. The offer ranges from the exquisite five-course menu in the “Chardonnay” to premium dishes in the “BEEFCLUB” to vegetarian offers in the “Lagune Foodhalls”. And if you haven’t had enough after a day in the Autostadt and want to be pampered, the Ritz Carlton, Wolfsburg – a five-star superior hotel on the Autostadt site is the right place for you.
