On the banks of the River Aller, in northern Germany, the history of this city is closely linked to cars. The city was founded to house the Volkswagen factory, and was built upon the success of car manufacturing.
Life in this German city revolves around the car. Visits to car factories to see the entire car manufacturing process are the top attractions in Wolfsburg. Autostadt is an exhibition of classic cars together with new cars fresh from the factory. Another must-see attraction in Wolfsburg is the Phaeno, an interactive science museum designed by the prestigious Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid. The architecture is a huge contrast with the Renaissance-style Wolfsburg Castle. If you plan to visit Wolfsburg with the family, we recommend visiting the Planetarium or Wakepark, a large lake with lots of water activities.
