The modern town of Wolfsburg was established in 1938 as a residential area for the workers of the Volkswagen factories. Originally the name of the town was Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben Fallersleben or "City of the KdF Car at Fallersleben" in English. In 1945 the town was renamed Wolfsburg after a former castle which had been located there. This newer German town, which is situated on the Aller River, is the perfect place for Volkswagen aficionados to hire a car from Auto Europe.
The main attraction in Wolfsburg is the Autostadt. This is Volkswagen's monumental tribute to their vehicles of the past and the present. The most impressive features of the Autostadt are its 2 cylindrical car towers. Each tower is 20 stories high, completely lined with glass and stores 400, hot off the production line, Volkswagens. It is something to be seen, and there are tours of these towers available to the public. There is also a hotel on site, restaurants and many other Volkswagen themed exhibits.
There are many things to see and do in the small town of Wolfsburg. Stop by the Car Museum which, of course, has displays focused on the evolution of the Volkswagen. Children will not only love the car theme of this town, but also the interactive science museum (Die Experimentierlandschaft) and the planetarium (Planetarium Wolfsburg).
