'Transparent factory', Dresden

Discover hidden processes: watch a e-Golf being created at VW's 'transparent factory' in Dresden.

The glass structure of the 'transparent factory' allows you to witness the fascinating process of car production.  Volkswagen has created a major centre of automotive culture that provides unprecedented insight into the production of motor cars. With its glass tower, almost 40m high and visible from afar, containing the finished cars awaiting collection, the 'transparent factory' has quickly established itself as one of Dresden's top attractions. Part of the new production site in the heart of the city on the river Elbe was a new logistics system. Specially designed trains make use of Dresden's tram network to transport prefabricated parts from the logistics centre on the outskirts of the city to the 'transparent factory'. State-of-the-art technology at the visitors' forum provides information about Volkswagen, its premium-class models and personal mobility in an exciting and interactive way. Customers collecting a car manufactured in Dresden have exclusive access to a separate part of the visitors' forum, making the handover of their new car a very special experience. The 'transparent factory' has also established a reputation as a cultural centre, hosting a wide range of events from classical music and pop to art exhibitions. Come and see this remarkable combination of production site and interactive exhibition for yourself.

Evenemang

Dresden's film nights on the Elbe have taken the 'big' screen quite literally to heart. Not simply because this is Germany's largest open-air film festival but also because since 2004 the films have been shown on the world's biggest mobile screen, which measures a gigantic 448 square metres or 32 metres by 14 metres – offering a superlative cinematic experience.

The events take place on approximately 60 nights during the summer, around 50 of which take the form of film screenings including a number of German premieres. There are around 3,300 seats, 400 of which are particularly sought after because they are under cover and offer at-seat service.
The festival's name only tells half the story because some brilliant concerts also come under the film nights on the Elbe banner: R.E.M., Die Ärzte, Nelly Furtado and Die Fantastischen Vier are just a few of many who have appeared here. For these ten or so performances, the giant screen is rotated 90 degrees and handily becomes the stage's roof. All in all, the film nights on the Elbe offer an exceptional programme for around 150,000 people.
There's also one magical, free extra: for many, Dresden silhouetted against the evening sky is a highlight in itself. Many things have changed since the festival was founded in 1991, but this view forever stays the same, which surely makes the film nights on the Elbe the most beautiful open-air film and concert festival in Germany – and possibly even in Europe?
