Wolfsburg (Germany) river cruise port

Wolfsburg is best-known (worldwide famous) for housing VW's (Volkswagen AG's) headquarters and also VW's (and world's) largest car-producing factory. Next to the VW plant is located the Autostadt (open-air museum/visitors center/theme park) exhibiting the company's various models made throughout its long history, also old car models by the VW-owned luxury brands Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Ducati, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Skoda, as well as commercial VW vehicles (in a separate pavilion). As theme-park, Autostadt also has a planetarium, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Phaeno Science Center (Germany's largest science-themed museum), water-skiing resort, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (private art museum).

Officially founded in 1938, Wolfsburg is one of the few large cities in Germany built in the 20th-century's first half. The town (initially named "Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben") was established to house workers producing the model "VW Beetle" (until 1945). By 1972, its population already exceeded 100,000. During WW2 (1939-1945) here were built military cars and airplanes. After the war, the town was renamed Wolfsburg - after the Wolfsburg Castle (lowland and water castle/palace) built here in the 13th-century. Volkswagen's best-selling car - VW Beetle - was manufactured here in the period 1955-1974, though the production continued in Emden until 1978.

As cruise port, Wolfsburg is included in the regular schedules of some of Europe's largest river cruise companies - like CroisiEurope and Phoenix Reisen. Next tables show some Lauenburg-visiting cruisetours as ports sequences and prices per person (double occupancy rates).
