ZeitHaus - Milestones in the history of the automobile
The ZeitHaus at the Autostadt in Wolfsburg is the most visited automobile museum in the world. The ZeitHaus is distinguished by its wide array of exhibits, representing over 60 different car manufacturers. As the trendsetters of their age, they set standards in the areas of technology, design, production methods and conception, thus serving as a shining example for other manufacturers.
In the area known as the Rack, more than 60 of these milestones are proudly on display, giving an overview of the key points in the history of the development of the automobile. The exhibits change regularly as the vehicles are often used for classic rallies and test drives.

On the ground floor of the ZeitHaus, La Coccinella serves up homemade pasta specialties from Italy, Germany and Austria as well as changing daily specials from around the world.
