Wolfsburg — The Volkswagen City

Wolfsburg is a big city by the Aller River named after a 13th century castle on its hill side, but it is best known in modern times as the birth place of the popular Volkswagen automobile.

It might interest you to learn that it was the brainchild of none other than Hitler, who wanted a car that the average man could afford. The factory that was to produce this dream car was set up right here in this city and you can tour it. Here, at the Volkswagen Werke is where they make about 3,600 cars a day.

For more technology, make sure you visit the Phaeno Science Center.

If you’re a die-hard automobile fan, you should head for the Auto Museum east of Wolfsburg. Get your fill of German beauties such as the Audi, Volkswagen, Wanderer, Porsche, and more.

The Volkswagen Theme Park a.k.a. Autostadt is another fun place to visit while here. It is where you’ll find the models of all cars made by VW (and some serious amusement park stuff!). The Autostadt lies in the city center, right behind the central station.

There’s more to this city than automobiles though. If you’re here with kiddies there’s no contest as to where to begin your tour of this city. Head straight for Allerpark with plenty of water based activities on offer. You’ll find swimming pools and even an ice rink to keep you busy all day long.

With that taken care of, you can visit the Schloss Wolfsburg. This 16th century castle now houses the Municipal Art Gallery. There’s plenty here for the art aficionado.

The Scheune Alt-Wolfsburg which used to be an old barn is now the Agricultural Museum. You’ll love the authentic ambience that has been successfully retained.

And for some modern art, you should visit the Kunstmuseum.

Satiate your thirst for culture at Wolfsburg’s Klieverberg. In the vicinity you’ll find the Theater, the Planetarium, and the Congress Park. Here’s the best of local art and culture for your appreciation.
