“Autostadt” | Volkswagen theme park

Isn’t it amazing ?? Volkswagen Golfs are stacked in one of the massive glass silos at Autostadt, the theme park adjacent to Volkswagen’s main plant in Wolfsburg, Germany. The 48-meter tall silos are composed of glass and galvanized steel, illuminated by night.  A conveyor belt system transports finished cars directly from the adjacent manufacturing plant  to the towers’ basement. from there, they are lifted into position via mechanical arms that rotate  and run along a central beam, moving vehicles in and out of their bays at a speed of two meters per second.

The Autostadt is adjacent to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, it features a museum, feature pavilions for the principal automobile brands in the Volkswagen Group, a customer center where German customers can pick up new cars, and take a tour through the enormous factory, a guide to the evolution of roads, and cinema in a large sphere. It is also home to the largest glass doors in the world and the longest printed line. The line starts from outside Wolfsburg and travels through Autostadt to a point on a farm. It is about 4 miles (6.4 km) long.

This factory building is 2 60m tall ‘car silos’ which house all brand new Volkswagens. If you are lucky enough to have purchased your car directly from the factory you get to watch your car being delivered to the ground floor via the very clever automated system.
