I really enjoyed visiting this factory. The building is really amazing - almost everything is made out of glass, and even the floor of the assembly line is wood. The tour was very interesting - the guide was very professional and knowledgeable and told us all about the car assembly process, the building, and the car-buyers' experience.

If you're at all interested in cars or cool buildings, or just want to do something a little different than the other Dresden attractions, definitely check it out. It is located right in the city center (about a 10 minute ride on Tram 10 from Hauptbahnhof), not too far from the Hygiene Museum.

Make sure you book the tour in advance though - apparently the English tours do fill up and are only given three times per day.

If you're in Dresden and have the time, see this VW factory in action as they do final assembly on their luxury Phaeton model.

A very well designed and delivered tour. A must for any trip to Dresden. If you are an English speaker like me book your tour in advance.
