Current information for customers and visitors.

The Transparent Factory is open, in accordance with the currently valid Corona Protection Ordinance of the Free State of Saxony and the general decree of the City of Dresden.

Please note that due to the current Corona situation in Dresden all visitors must be either fully vaccinated or recovered from a CoviD-19 infection or show a same-day negative test. A proof is required when you enter our visitor area. The rules do not apply to children under 7 years. We kindly ask for your understanding. Medical mouth nose protection is mandatory in the entire customer area.

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

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.

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 general hygiene and distance rules still apply, which we have summarized for you again here, as well as the obligation to record contact data in our company. Medical mask obligation exists in the entire customer area.
