Current information for customers and visitors.

In accordance with the current Corona Protection Ordinance of the Free State of Saxony and the general decree of the City of Dresden, the Transparent Factory is once again open to visitors. Also the production can be visited again. No more test is necessary for the visit.

Our guests can look forward to many new, exciting exhibition highlights.

In addition to a special exhibition on the 20-year history of the Transparent Factory, we offer a few great highlights for families. Our KID.s Quiz provides a welcome break through fun and games, where you can go on a discovery tour together with your children in the outdoor area of the Transparent Factory and learn lots of interesting facts about the environment and sustainability. In addition, we have of course adapted our visit offer to the applicable distance regulations.

The approximately one-hour tour through the manufacturing and experience world will show you various facets of the Dresden site. From production topics to new products and the future of mobility, you will get a comprehensive overview of the electric world of Volkswagen.

Please take into account that production is shut down on weekends.

Our restaurant e-Vitrum is also open again

With the opening of the outdoor gastronomy, the restaurant e-Vitrum by Mario Pattis has come up with some novelties for the terrace operation. Under the motto "summer garden", for example, the lawn in front of the manufactory will be equipped with deck chairs. Raised beds with native garden herbs and flowers generously separate the seating areas. Beach chairs and patio furniture with a view of the pond provide a summery flair. Culinary offerings include classics like the famous VW currywurst, as well as tabletop barbecue events, picnic baskets and a breakfast menu. Vegetarian theme days will start soon.

Vehicle delivery and ID. Counseling can still be offered on a regular basis.
All appointments already made for vehicle handover will remain in place, and you can also book vehicle handover at the Transparent Factory with your dealer until further notice.

If you are interested in our ID.3 or ID.4, our consulting team is available for an individual appointment including a test drive. These appointments must be booked in advance and a daily negative coronatest is required. All further information about our ID. Consulting offer can be found here.

We are looking forward to your visit!
