CarTowers Now Opened Publicly

Visitors to the Autostadt are now able to experience the CarTowers from the inside! A special glass, panorama lift takes six guests through the same procedure as one of the 800 cars stored in the CarTowers. Until recently the glass-encased steel construction of the CarTowers was closed to the public, now the inside of the Autostadt’s most well-known landmark can be explored from top to bottom.

 Visitors are taken up 48 metres to the 20th storey by the car shuttle as if they were a regular car – for extra effect the car shuttle swings slowly to the right and then back to the left before safely depositing the glass lift in a specially designed slot on the observation deck.

A breathtaking view of the Autostadt’s lagoon-landscape, the Volkswagen factory and the adjacent countryside greets the guests when they disembark. During the ride through the inside of the tower the ever changing views of the landscape merge with the impressions of a highly complex technology at work.
 The TurmFahrt (CarTower Discovery) takes place up to three times every hour and lasts approx. fifteen minutes. The lift seats six, children taller than one metre are welcome. The CarTower Discovery attraction is suitable for all, with the following exceptions: pregnant women, people with heart disease, people with limited use of their legs (Wheelchair).Tickets are available from the WelcomeDesk on the piazza.Adults: € 8, Reduced rate: € 6, Children (6-17 years), students: € 4
