Wolfsburg Travel Guide

Schloss Wolfsburg (© -
Wolfsburg Castle.


Aptly nicknamed "Golfsburg", Wolfsburg is home to the global headquarters of Volkswagen and the world's largest car factory. The city actually grew around the first VW factory, established in 1938, and originally went by the clumsy appellation of Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben. It was renamed Wolfsburg in 1945 after the local castle.


Needless to say that everything here revolves around the automobile industry. The main sight is the Autostadt, sprawling on 25 ha (61 acres).
