Wolfsburg - founded in 1938 - is the only city in the world built exclusively for the automobile.
Here the traditional has come together with the modern to form a harmonious whole. While the 700 year old castle and historical parts of city and environs are a reminder of the long history of this once predominantly rural region, modern architecture by famous names of the 20th century and high-tech industrial products symbolize a future-oriented city. Wolfsburg is also a story of successful human integration over many decades. People of diverse nationalities have found work and made their home in this city.
