2 Days for me in GermanyHi,
I will be there in Wolfsburg for 2 weeks in November and will be having just 2 days (Sat/Sun) for myself. I would like to explore Germany as much as I can. Where to go and what to see since its my first trip to Germany, I want to make it memorable.

12 days to explore Germany? That is not even enough to explore a city, not to mention that sunday is usually a calm day in germany since most of the shops are closed.
I suggest you choose a city and go there. Berlin might be a good one, or Hamburg maybe.
As for me, I would take a train to Berlin in the morning and do some sightseeing there. I could tell you some nice cafes and restaurants.

2Either Berlin (probably best idea in November) or some small medieval towns in the Harz or Thuringen area.

3I guess I was quite excited when I say 2 days to explore Germany :P. Sadly I have to get back by Sunday morning so now left with just one day.
Nevertheeless, Thanks for your advice @freiburger and @neckervd, I will be visiting Berling. Planning to take Weekend Pass to reach there and get onto a hop on bus to see around. WIll try to see as much as I can and then will get back to Wolfsburg after checking some evening lights. @freiburger which budgeted cafe and restaurant do you recommend.
Also, I found that temperature will be around 3-6 C at that time. Any advice you would like to give for protecting myself.
Thanks again !

4oops, budget, I did not think about that, but lets see:
If you are into japanese food, you should give Kokolo Ramen a try, a japanese noudle soup bar in the heart of Berlin. Not really cheap (soup around 8 €) but the best Ramen outside of Japan imho. Also the Soy beans as starter are deicious. (Gipsstr. 3, shares an entrance with Kuchi, so stay lefthandside for Kokolo and have a seat at the soup bar). If it is cold outside you will see clouds coming out from the bar :-)
A real bargain is the indian restaurant in Oderberger Straße 49 called Naan. Food ir really delicious and they have really cheap and good cocktails. Starting from 3 €. So go for a drink at least and try the fried Naan!
Just around the corner is a nice, well not fastfood, not restaurant, not arabice but a place with amazing food in Kastanienallee 15, called Habba Habba. Good for a delicious lunch.
If you wanna have a coffee or a cappu, go for Bonanza at Oderberger Straße 35. They roast the coffee in the cafe.
Anyway you will find nice international food there, just avoid the italian one. I think you will find some German food too, but you are 2 weeks in Wolfsburg, so why not some really delicious international kitchen!

5I would like to point you Quedlinburg as a potential destination for a visit in the Harz mountains.
Berlin is big city, I like it very much, but one day will not do it justice.
