A VW automotive theme park in Wolfsburg, Germany
Volkswagen has been making cars in Wolfsburg, Germany since 1939, when the Volkswagenwerk was completed and the first Beetle--then known as the KdF--came off the assembly line.
Today, the made-to-order factory town of Wolfsburg has grown into a city of 123,000, and a former industrial area next to the Volkswagen factory has become the , an automotive theme park that has attracted more than 10 million visitors since its opening on June 1, 2000.
Autostadt has a state-of-the-art car museum, brand pavilions for marques that range from Volkswagen to Lamborghini, driving courses for adults and children, tours of the world's largest auto factory, robot-guided ascents of the 20-story car towers, music festivals and other events, restaurants (don't miss the VW factory's renowned Currywurst), and even a luxury hotel.
Just as important, Autostadt is the home of Volkswagen's KundenCenter, or Customer Center, where car buyers can pick up custom-ordered VWs directly from the factory.
With a range of activities, a location next to Wolfsburg's world-class Phaeno science museum, and quick access from Berlin by high-speed ICE train, the Autostadt is a worthwhile destination for VW fans or anyone who's interested in cars.
