The 14th century Knights who founded this little blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-place could not have imagined that in 2011 their little burg would be churning out 3500 cars a day from the Volkswagen factory.

After German reunification in 1990, Volkswagen commissioned the creation of the Autostadt (15 day ticket entry) which opened to the public in 2000. The mission was ambitious to say the least: to convert the large tracts of industrial land surrounding the present day factory into an interactive visitor park with world-class cultural and gastronomic offerings.
