VW Factory Tour
The AutoPavilion, Place of Cars and Legends, first opened doors in 2004, the result of a need for a modern, state-of-the art heritage centre to replace the existing museum that housed the Company’s old vehicles.
The multi-million rand attraction is unique as it is the only automobile discovery centre on the continent and only the fifth worldwide.
Volkswagen of South Africa’s high-tech, interactive expo and heritage centre takes you on a full-throttle journey from concept to classic, laser to legend, with the cars that defined the past and inspire the future.
Featuring state of the art technology and unprecedented interactivity, the AutoPavilion in Uitenhage proudly showcases the evolution of the VW brand from the very first Beetle to the contemporary passenger and sports cars of today.…
Because a tour of the Volkswagen’s enormous factory has gone mobile, visitors can now rest their feet, sit back and relax while taking in the sights and sounds of the intricate manufacturing process from a vehicle made entirely from recycled and unused vehicle parts.
A brand new addition – initiated out of the need for a safer, quicker and more manageable process when conducting the daily tours around the plant – the new Factory Tour vehicle is stationed adjacent to the AutoPavilion parking area.
The one-hour mobile tour is free and conducted Mondays to Thursday at 9h00 or 12h00, on a Friday only at 9h00, starting and ending at the AutoPavilion. We can accommodate 42 people per session of whom 21 people go into the Factory on the 1st trip and after an hour another group of 21 people go into the Factory. Be sure to book well in advance. Volkswagen Factory Tour age restriction: 8 years and older.
