Welcome to Wolfsburg


Arriving in Wolfsburg by train, the first thing you see is an enormous, almost surreal, VW emblem on the side of a factory, an image that could have come straight from Fritz Lang’s classic film Metropolis. Volkswagen is the world’s second-largest vehicle manufacturer, and its global headquarters is right here, employing about 40% of Wolfsburg's residents in the world's largest car factory. As a planned, modern company town – it was founded in 1938 to house factory workers – it may seem a bit soulless: you'll find no Altstadt with half-timbered houses here.

In the 20s and 30s this famous circuit saw the motor-sport legend Bentley rise to fame. Skoda: a bird’s-eye view of the ŠKODA pavilion is that of the winged arrow, logo ŠKODA brand is using since 1926.
