Wolfsburg is an old city with lots of interesting attractions and fascinating history. It has many interesting features that never cease to amaze foreign guests.

These pre-holiday days are the happiest time for children because along with colorful fairs there is a huge number of rides and playgrounds in the city. While kids are trying out the rides in action, parents can taste festive drinks and treats at the nearest cafe.
One of the most unusual toys that can be found at Christmas fairs is Advent Kalendar. This is a flat cardboard box made in the shape of a house with many windows. Candies are placed inside the box, which can only be opened on the day indicated on the first window. The child should open one window and eat a candy every day. When the chocolates in the box run out, the long-awaited Christmas will come. Such original calendars are very popular among locals, they can be seen in every home. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Wolfsburg is famous for two things: firstly, this is headquarters of the global automotive brand (Volkswagen), and secondly, the eponymous football club based here. Besides that, the city is known for its industry. Locals are distinguished by modesty and restraint - even if they have something to be proud of (for example, victories of their football team), they will never brag about it. But since they are used to see quite a lot of tourists visiting their hometown, they are always ready to help - that's where they're not going to restrain themselves. An important nuance - local people will be more willing to help if they hear at least a few words in German.
Wolfsburg - Phaeno (2) Straightforwardness and a bit of criticism are some other distinctive features of local residents. They like to complain a bit about life, sometimes can't take hints, so try to speak with them straightforwardly. Surprises are not in the norm here - no one ever comes without an invitation, as surprises frighten local people like nothing else. This is due to another trait - namely, the love for planning and strict adherence to the plan. Speaking about Wolfsburg cuisine, it is worth noting that people here are fond of tasty and hearty food, so gastronomic traditions include an abundance of meat and vegetables.
The famous Autostadt Amusement Park opened in 2000 remains one of the tourists' most favorite leisure zones. The theme park is located on the territory of the Volkswagen automobile plant and … Open
The most famous festival taking place in Wolfsburg is the Bulli Sommer Festival. It is held on the Allerpark's stage at the beginning of hot August for four fun-filled days.
