Perfect Weekend

Unlike most German cities, Wolfsburg is anchored not by a medieval town square, but by Volkswagen’s world headquarters. Because of this unique foundation, the community embodies the ideas of mobility and forward motion, as illustrated by the numerous science museums and modern art exhibitions. There’s no shortage of Michelin-starred restaurants and relaxing spa treatments to choose from either. In Wolfsburg, you’ll discover a city laden with innovative technology and Old World charm, creating the perfect off-the-beaten-path adventure for the modern traveler.  



  • Rise and Dine.

    Before you begin the day’s adventure, enjoy a scrumptious spread of baked goods, muesli, homemade jams and specialty coffee drinks at the on-site art deco café Deli inside
    The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg.

  • Explore the Autostadt.

    What was once an industrial site next to the Volkswagen factory, the Autostadt has become an international destination for car enthusiasts and culture hounds alike. Spend your morning touring the state-of-the-art car museum, the world’s largest auto factory, or browse the different brand pavilions featuring Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen cars.

  • Eat a German Favorite.

    If all the exploring leaves you hungry, check out Tachometer in the Volkswagen pavilion and feast on their delicious currywurst. But be sure to stop by the Scent Tunnel before you depart; the unforgettable contemporary art installation is remodeled seasonally to represent the duality of mobility and immobility.

  • Hold Court.

    Take an afternoon stroll through the immaculate grounds of the Wolfsburg Castle. While the city of Wolfsburg itself may be only 80 years old, the castle has stood for over seven centuries. The formidable building houses the city gallery, art society and city museum, making it an excellent place to learn about German history.

  • Farm to Table.

    TERRA is one of Wolfsburg’s best restaurants and for good reason. The menu offers full sourcing transparency and features dishes made from ingredients supplied by German organic farms and local purveyors.

  • A Twilight Treat.

    Unwind with an after-dinner drink at Newman’s Bar. Inspired by the ambience of a classic American saloon, the cognac-colored interior and papyrus leaf-lined walls create a warm and cozy setting. Choose from specialty cocktails and a wide array of cigars waiting for you in the humidor.



  • Go Green.

    Start your morning with a brisk walk through Allerpark, Wolfsburg’s largest public leisure space. Circle the 2.5-mile botanical path around the man-made Allersee Lake, but if you have more time, the park also has volleyball courts, skate parks, boating and other water activities.

  • Browse World-Class Art.

    Even if you’ve been before, it’s easy to get lost in the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. The museum is constantly reimagining itself with ever-changing programs of large-scale art installations and provocative exhibits. The permanent collection features modern and contemporary art from artists all over the world.

  • Grab a Bite.

    No trip to the Kunstmuseum is complete without a stop by Awilon, the delightful museum restaurant. Order its signature veal schnitzel — it’s one of the best around. But be sure to plan ahead as the museum is closed on Mondays.

  • Relax at the Spa.

    After exploring the city, you’ll want to unwind in peaceful solitude at
    The Ritz-Carlton Spa. Book the signature treatment: the Four Hand Massage, a incomparable experience that utilizes the rhythm of two therapists’ hands to leave you feeling tension-free. With two steam baths and two saunas, as well as a variety of massages and cosmetic treatments, there’s something to help everyone look and feel their best.

  • Tea Time.

    Enjoy traditional English afternoon tea at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg Tea Lounge. With over 16 varieties, you’re sure to discover a new favorite cup.

  • Dining, Reimagined.

    Last but certainly not least, you’ll want to make a reservation for Aqua at
    The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg. This three-Michelin-starred restaurant serves inventive European cuisine by Executive Chef Sven Elverfeld. Try the nine-course dinner menu for an unforgettable experience. End the evening on a high note by saving room for the delectable champagne sorbet.
