Tours of the Volkswagenfabrik in Wolfsburg

Volkswagen claims that its Wolfsburg factory is the largest auto plant in the world. According to the park's official guide (published in several languages by Merian), "the Principality of Monaco would fit into the halls alone."

The Volkswagenfabrik has 75 km or 46 miles of streets, employs 23,000 people, and has 1,140 robots. The fire department alone has a staff of 76.

The VW factory even has its own butcher shop, which processes some 500 tons of meat for 1.5 million curry sausages per year. In addition to Currywurste, the factory produces cars: about 4,000 daily, mostly Golfs, Jettas, and other variations on the Golf platform.

On work days, Volkswagen offers a WerkTour or factory tour. Click this link for more information.
