Movimentos will be presented for the first time this year in the new "Hafen 1" event location. The new hall has been under construction since October 2018 on the north side of the harbour basin. It will serve as the new Movimentos performance venue after the 2018 international festival was staged for the last time in the Volkswagen power plant.

The distinctive cuboid-shaped building creates a unique accent within the modern Autostadt architecture and integrates the circular design of the adjacent hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg, into the industrial backdrop of the Volkswagen plant. A large front terrace frames the building and offers visitors a place to relax on the waterfront.

A panoramic view of the water and harbour basin will also be a key feature from inside the event hall. The building structure is puristic, with elegant steel surfaces and glass elements. Close cooperation between the building contractor, the Volkswagen Group, and the Autostadt, which was commissioned with the construction of Hafen 1, is not only evident in the building project and integration of the infrastructure. The Autostadt will also be responsible for Hafen 1 operation.

Space for up to 1,400 visitors

Built on 3,100 square metres of land, the new structure is 73 metres long, 46 metres wide and up to 23 metres high with 5,300 square metres of floorspace on three levels. Featuring an adaptable interior design, Hafen 1 will serve as a multipurpose event location with space for up to 1,400 visitors. "Movimentos will soon have a permanent home," said Wolfsburg Mayor Klaus Mohrs. "This sends a great signal that will delight fans from Wolfsburg, the local region and beyond." Movimentos is the first public event in Hafen 1 The Autostadt celebrated the completion of the building shell for the new event hall with a topping-out ceremony on 20 March. Some 80 project participants from the Autostadt, the Volkswagen Group and the contracted companies gathered at the construction site to dedicate the new building and place the traditional wreath on top. Following an in-house Volkswagen event in June, the first public event taking place in Hafen 1 will be the Movimentos dance festival.
