Opened in 2004, Förderverein August Horch Museum 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.

  • Similar to the Mercedes or Porsche museum in Stuttgart. Although on a smaller scale but just perfect.

  • Beautiful Museum, very informative and beautifully designed. Especially liked the nostalgic road in addition to shop in the basement has us. The films and contributions to Horch, Audi, etc are entertaining, informative, and very nicely done. Detail it was put much emphasis on it, that's why the Museum is not just for die-hard automotive fans; as the nostalgic advertising pillar or the hotel scene has given us and the great historical street scene and landscape shots.

  • A very good Museum! Here you can see and learn the history of Saxon automotive art and the history of AUDI. The production history is very recognizable. Very detailed with a petrol station and a shopping street. The vehicles shine. There are children's play corners. Very much recommended. Free parking is available.
