"The new presentation of the Volkswagen brand pavilion is an impressive indication of the technical competence and emotional content of the Volkswagen brand. For our guests, the redesigned interior of the pavilion will be another highlight of their visit to Autostadt," says Otto Ferdinand Wachs, Managing Director of Autostadt.

Guests reach the lounge on the upper level of the pavilion, a lounge equipped with iPads, via seating steps. Here, they can become immersed in the digital world of Volkswagen and try out a wide range of Volkswagen apps.
The main exhibition area of the pavilion, with floor space of almost 440 square meters is used for temporary exhibitions. In connection with the launch of new Volkswagen models, the exhibits now on show include the new up! Temporary exhibitions are also held in a separate room with an exhibition area of almost 260 square meters. Currently, visitors can enjoy an interactive exhibition on "Think Blue”. The exhibits inform visitors about Volkswagen's engaged approach to sustainability in an entertaining way. In addition to a number of different projects, alternative mobility concepts such as "Quicar – Share a Volkswagen” are presented on a multi-sensor LED wall.
