  • My Husband was crazy to go to the glass elevator, but to go there you have to buy the pass to get in on the Autostad. We get disapointed, the place is beautiful, but the price is high, for us it's not...  read more »
  • Nice place to visit, with VW show cars distributed in several places. The museum is amazing, with lots of old cars and prototypes that we could only imagine to see them in videogames. Very nice!

  • To get the most of the Autostadt you will want to book the tours and other activities in advance. We prepaid early bird entry on the first day (enter before 10am and pay €12 for the first person and €10 for each subsequent person) and you receive a card with a €5 credit that can be spent at any of the food outlets. The first activity was the Car Tower Ascent at 11am for €7.60 per person (maximum 6) and at 12:20 the English factory tour (€0) followed by the German only Maritime Panorama Tour (€0) at 14:00 and the Touareg All-Terrain drive at 16:15 which cost €33.25. In between there are plenty of pavilions to visit for each of VAGs major car brands. On the second day we purchased one early bird ticket (€12) and had already booked the e-Golf test drive which included entry for one person (€14.25). The car pavilions are mainly a showcase of the some of the current vehicles, the VW one was a little disappointing with only three cars on display, the Seat one was closed for an event, the Skoda one was interesting and the Audi one contained cars like the R8 V10 and RS6 wagon so well worth checking out. There is a VW accessory shop where you can buy presents for your car or family members with everything from cups to coffeemakers to caps, in the same building there is a huge range of VW current model vehicles. The activities are all worth doing if you have the time, the Car Tower Ascent is very interesting and the Touareg All-Terrain track being great to see what the vehicle can do. The e-Golf drive was really interesting with a 30 drive around Wolfsburg. The automotive museum houses not just VAG cars and can take many hours to get around, there is a gift shop on the ground floor which also has many model cars. Plenty of places to eat and the food was all great and reasonably priced. The grounds are pretty big and to walk around without entering the pavilions you could easily take 90 minutes. Allow a few days to get around the place if you partake in activities otherwise you could probably do it in an day. Visited September 2014
  • I was almost fainted there because of the slope of those Porsche house. GOOD design but terrible Feng Shui.😕
  • It is simply the MOST beautiful place in Wolfsburg. It is a must-do when you are close. And with close I mean in Germany. Well, even an Europe trip should be redirected. It houses a wonderful park with pavilions of all brands. As an insider I recommend a trip up to the top of the car-towers. The view is among the best in the city and you will understand, why VW does matter to Wolfsburg.
  • The cleanest place in Europe. Lots to see. But it is Volkswagen, the company that brought you the murderous emissions fraud.
  • A once in a lifetime car museum, if your into that kind of thing, you'll give it 5 stars too.
