Our family was very impressed with the Transparent Factory in Dresden. My 5 year old son decided that he wants to organise his next birthday there. Where do you start with explaining to a young man that it is highly impossible. I would suggest to pay a visit when the cars are being assembled as it must be making an... More

I have seen many factories, including the MBenz outside of Stuttgart. Only one or two models are made here--the high end VW Phaeton, and a Bentley, I think (VW owns Bentley and a dozen other brands). We got there late, and did not get the full tour, but it looked very interesting, and they are supposed to have a very... More

We toured the transparent factory and learned how the Phaeton luxury car is hand made in this incredible building. We saw the assembly line from start to finish from a viewing gallery, watched the automated elevator retrieve cars from the glass tower and deliver them to the presentation chamber for the owner to see the automobile for the first time....

What a tour was in store for us when we arrived. As part of our Viking river cruise on the Elbe River, we docked in Dresden the evening before and scheduled a tour of the VW factory for late afternoon. We had an English speaking guide who intrigued us with explanations of the mfg process as well as anecdotal stories.... More

They don't want you taking pictures in a transparent factory. Go figure. Anyway, it costs a few euros of course, but it is worth a look. Our tour guide was very pretty and was from the Czech Republic. People of my age grew up learning that it was Czechoslovakia. She didn't like that reference and reminded us that it has... More

We were surprised the tour was still offered on Sundays, the only day we could do the tour. Since it was available, we expected to have the same experience as the other weekday tours. However, the factory was not in operation, making it a much less interesting tour. It might have been worth it (barely) if we had been warned... More

The guides are great - but really, this is a glorified assembly plant. Our experience was probably affected by the fact that is was summer shut down. NOTE: summer holidays are mid 2 weeks in August and also the woking day finishes at 3pm during the rest of the year. Tours outside working times are not great -avoid if possible.... More
