Autostadt in Wolfsburg, located right next door to the Volkswagen factory on the Mittelland Canal, is an innovative discovery centre and leisure park for all the family. It is a veritable explosion of ideas, offering adventure for kids aged three upwards, attractions for car lovers and culinary surprises too.
The 28-hectare park of Autostadt in Wolfsburg – with its green spaces, lakes, exhibitions, art and architecture, events calendar, driver safety training courses and all-terrain track – has something for culture lovers, technology enthusiasts, multimedia fans and those seeking peace and quiet. With attractions such as the MobiVersum family centre, Autostadt has plenty for younger visitors to enjoy as well. The ZeitHaus is a wonder to behold – the ultimate in interactive museums, which dazzles with its collection of rare classic cars. On display are legends and milestones of motoring history, with vintage vehicles dating back to 1888 and from all international marques. Autostadt is one giant adventure playground: there are workshops, children's tours and a playground, as well as a driving school with real roads and traffic signs, where children as young as five can take their driving test in a mini New Beetle. The training courses, which include theory and practical elements, are held daily. A wide range of Autostadt guided tours are available if you would like a helping hand discovering the exhibitions, the architecture, the attractions and the extensive parkland. A particularly striking feature in the park is the 20-metre-long scent tunnel, an installation by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson comprising over 2,000 flower pots.
Autostadt in Wolfsburg is a place for the whole family: for grandparents, parents and children, for those with a thirst for knowledge, a taste for adventure, and a love of art or fine food. Everyone has the chance to climb, slide and balance on the new 'motion sculpture'. MobiVersum has lots of fun things for kids to do, from playing and exercising to creating and experimenting. What's more, Autostadt doubles as a venue for classical concerts and pop music events, as well as ice-skating shows in winter and incredible water shows in summer. The Ritz-Carlton luxury hotel is also located on the grounds. And there are lots of places to eat out too, from the vibrant Lagune foodhall and the elegant Chardonnay restaurant in the KonzernForum to the atmospheric Stadtcafé and family favourite Pizza AMano, where the kids can make their own pizzas.
