The Autostadt is a big attraction for locals and tourists alike—across its museums, lawns, and pavilions, the park receives more than 2 million visitors each year, making it one of the most popular themed parks in Germany. The sprawling campus features content from brands like Audi and Porsche, whose information pavilion with real display vehicles was one of our team’s favorites. We also took an insightful tour of the ZeitHaus, an onsite museum dedicated to the history of the automobile.
Our visit to Wolfsburg concluded with a tour of the nearby Volkswagen plant. As expected of the world’s largest car factory, the plant produces almost a million cars each year. That means a lot of robots at work—many more than here at the Chattanooga plant, where RoboLive® is currently deployed. While all our team members are familiar with the inner workings of a car factory, experiencing a plant the size of VW Wolfsburg was a unique opportunity. All told, the factory is bigger than the entire country of Monaco.
