We came here you do the factory tour, but it has recently (i.e as of July 31 2017) been suspended until 2018 due to construction works inside the factory. We have not gone into the museum.

I needed a gift for a housewarming for a VW lover. Went to the AutoPavilion to purchase something and found some very interesting gifts to choose from. They really cater for everyone in the family and the service received was very good. Very helpful staff.
