Perfectly organized from the on-site parking lot with e-charging stations - explanation of the individual processes right up to the end. I thought it was a shame that it was not possible to buy a book (as a gift - not everyone has a PC) through the Transparent Factory! Maybe there are reasons not to offer it!

This is a tour for everyone! I’m no car mad person, they just get me from A to B but I really enjoyed this tour. Modern, exciting innovation looking forward in time. Seeing the cars put together so closely was awesome. So glad this tour was suggested to us and I went with my husband.

Well worth a visit! Very interesting tour, interactive, you can get a great insight into how cars are produced and what cars would look like in the future. Possibility to try a simulator, also for a test drive of the e-Golf. There's also a souvenir shop and a great cafe. I would recommend a visit here, fantastic experience, one of the best programs when you're in Dresden.
