"People, cars and what moves them" is the slogan for the Autostadt in Wolfsburg. This automotive theme park attracts people who have a passion for cars as well as those who enjoy culture and unique kind events. As a communications platform for the Volkswagen Group, the Autostadt invites guests to experience a new automotive world. Instead of focusing on vehicle production, the presentations highlight the many different aspects of human mobility.
Visitors can explore the latest developments in vehicle design and technology in the CarDesign Studio or in the interactive, multimedia exhibition "LEVEL GREEN – The Concept of Sustainability" located in the Autostadt GroupWorld. LEVEL GREEN reflects the current state of research presented in six theme-based sections. New insights and scientific data are continuously integrated into the exhibition. Guests can choose a quick overview or delve more deeply into specific subjects.
Volkswagen Group brands are showcased in seven pavilions in the landscaped park. Each of the brand philosophies can be experienced first hand by guests. A main attraction for many visitors is the Autostadt CustomerCenter. Each day, an average of 550 car buyers pick up a new car at the world's largest vehicle delivery center. Next door, two glass CarTowers soaring 48 meters into the sky hold up to 800 vehicles waiting for delivery.
The most popular Autostadt attraction is the ZeitHaus museum. As the world's most frequently-visited automotive museum, the Zeithaus showcases historical Volkswagen cars as well as milestone vehicles produced by other manufacturers. Something all of the vehicles on display share in common is the fact that they each played an important role in accelerating the development of the automobile in terms of technology, design or concept. A highlight for Autostadt visitors interested in culture is the international Movimentos Festival Weeks. Each year, some 30,000 visitors
come to Wolfsburg to see performances by renowned dance companies from around the world, as well as first-class pop, jazz and classical music concerts, or dramatic readings by well-known actors.
When it comes to restaurants and hotels, the Autostadt relies on powerful partnerships. Thirteen restaurants – including nine operated by Mövenpick – offer visitors a variety of opportunities to unwind and enjoy themselves. Guests can choose from exquisite five-course meals prepared by chef Daniel Kluge in the Chardonnay restaurant, a variety of vegetarian dishes in the Lagune Foodhalls, choice cuts of meat in the BEEFCLUB, or freshly-prepared European noodles in the brand new La Coccinella restaurant. The Autostadt chefs regard healthy nutrition as of prime importance. That is why natural, organic products supplied by local farmers are served at all of the restaurants on site.
Located in The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg, five-star hotel, the Aqua restaurant is well known among connoisseurs across Germany. This is where Sven Elverfeld, Northern Germany's only three-star chef, works. His modern European cuisine is based on classical elements served in amazing combinations. Guests who would like to spend the night surrounded by a parkland
interspersed with flowing water and lagoons can choose from 174 rooms in the Autostadt's luxury hotel. Andrée Putman, an internationally recognized interior designer, created the hotel's interior with an emphasis on unobtrusive elegance.
The success of the Autostadt is not only based on its wide range of activities. Another important factor is the outstanding service quality. This is where each and every guest is treated like a king. The idea is to ensure visitors feel welcome as guests and return home with fond memories.
