Have you just bought a new Volkswagen? Take advantage of the opportunity to get to know the place where it was produced. And, if you decide to come on a weekday, add the option of experiencing the most relevant manufacturing steps live, because the guided tour of the Gläserne Manufaktur takes you past the final assembly point of the ID.3. In addition, you can experience an exciting, interactive world that shows how fit for daily life e-mobility already is, and that answers questions about the future of mobility.

However, the highlight of your visit is the spectacular presentation of your new car.
