Wolfsburg, Germany. Volkswagen town.

Postby BTJustice » Tue Aug 14, 2018 1:43 pm

Last week myself and two mates headed for Wolfsburg to visit the VW museum, Autostadt and take the VW factory tour.
Day one was flying from Glasgow to Hannover via Amsterdam then use the very efficient railway system to get to Wolfsburg itself. The train station couldnt really drop you any closer to the factory.

We ditched our bags in the lockers at the station and walked about a mile to get to the VW museum on Dieselstrasse;

Inside is a collection of cars important to VW's history including prototypes, historic cars and race cars;

After dinner and checking into the hotel we went a wander. It is quite normal to see a street of cars that are ALL volkswagens;

Day 2 we spent the day at the Autostadt complex but first we stopped here. This was the site of the Tullio Cianeti hall. Basically a place where they would sell the dream of the KDF Wagen or Strength through joy car and now has a marble split window memorial.

Day 3 of the trip we were booked on the factory tour but there was strictly no photography allowed inside the factory so this is the last picture I got on the tour;

Straight after the tour we had to start our journey home. Flights were booked for 6pm but when I checked my phone on the train the news came through that our flights had been cancelled due to thunder storms so we thought we would be seeing a lot of Hannover airport;

KLM put us up in a flash hotel and at 4am we were on our way to Munich before heading home to Glasgow.

Great couple of days and if you are into VW's its well worth a visit.

Hope you enjoyed the pics and remember to visit my flickr for more.
