August Horch Museum Zwickau, Zwickau
(4.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Opened in 2004, August Horch Museum Zwickau covers the history of automobile manufacturing in Zwickau, home of the Horch and Audi car brands prior to World War II. The museum is housed within a former factory where August Horch, an engineer and automobile pioneer, first established his Audi enterprise in 1910. Numerous vintage cars are parked within exhibits made to look like gas stations or entire streetscapes from the 1930s. The permanent exhibit space is chronologically designed, starting with the early years of Zwickau's car industry and concluding nearly one century later, with the production of Volkswagens in the 1990s. The automotive odyssey is presented through 70 large and small exhibits, highlighted by computer animations, historic documents, and video presentations.

  • The small but beautiful Museum gives an insight into the emergence of the later car Union. Very successful tours with some older eloquent men.

  • This is a great surprise. This museum is not so large, but very very well done and well displayed. Very nice display per age and per generation. If you go to Zwickau, do not miss it. 
  • I recommend it to every Zwickau visitors. As far as automotive history, certainly a novelty in Germany. Here you can get from the beginning today, a complete overview of Automobility. In addition there are always special exhibitions with exhibits that there is anywhere else. A MUST for Zwickau visitors!

  • Great exhibition but the café especially the food was just awful... Half frozen meat and such...
  • The Time to safe old Values
  • For car fans and interested parties of the Saxon automotive history a MUST. Unfortunately only the development is shown so far due to lack of space until 1945, but in the coming year to - doubling and then presented to the present the history of the automotive industry site of Zwickau. We look forward!
