“Car manufacturing at its best.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

German engineering at its finest. For a tour, you must make telephone reservations. We did not but the numerous video diplays in many languages seemed to provide just as much info as the group tours that were being conducted. The past TV ads for VW shown in the 'bubble' are well worth it. Photograps are not allowed but you can sneaks several in when the guides are not around.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Although the staff was very polite and nice, we found that the tours in English are carried out quite rarely. The visitors' tour without guiding is limited for one floor.

“interesting, worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Being interesting for me doesn't mean too much. I love all technical stuff. More importantly, this museum/factory was interesting even for my wife.

We asked for English speaking guide, and in our visiting group we were only 4, so I was able to ask questions. And so I did. The guide was not reciting a known by heart the story, she really knew what was going on there and she could answer various questions.

“Make reservations ahead for VW factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We went out there and unfortunately they had a convention booked, but they stressed it is a good idea to call ahead or write for a reservation to go on a tour there. It looks ultramodern and quite amazing. Wish we could have toured the inside.

“Really interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Very interesting to see this high tech facility, which is a work of art in and of itself. Wish we could have seen some work going on, but it must have been a slow day.
