PSFK Tours Volkswagen In Germany: Part 3 of 3
Design

Our last stop on the Volkswagen tour in Germany takes us to their amazing Transparent Factory. Is this a template for manufacturing in the twenty-first century?

Our agenda in Germany wrapped up with a unique opportunity to visit Volkswagen’s Transparent Factory located in Dresden. Having spent most our time in Berlin, VW also arranged for some special transportation between the two cities. A brand new 2010 Phaeton was delivered to the hotel with a driving route programmed in to the navigation system that included time on the autobahn as well as stretches of back roads that wound through beautiful pine forests and small villages. The Phaeton which is VW’s flagship luxury car was selected because the Dresden factory is where they get assembled. Our drive concluded at the entrance to the factory and following we got a special tour of the assembly line while cars were being built.
