On the last Advent Sunday before Christmas, the four smokestacks above the Volkswagen KraftWerk power plant glow like giant red candles over the winter wonderland in the Autostadt. The parkland twinkles with thousands of tiny lights in the trees and dancing skaters take guests on a musical journey to New York, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow, Paris, Macau, Las Vegas, Berlin and London. A peaceful winter mood is enhanced by the sweeping ice surface lined with wintry figures and the small chalets serving delicious snacks and treats. Each year, more than two million visitors come to the automotive theme park in Wolfsburg, one of Germany's most popular tourist destinations. For information about the Autostadt: www.autostadt.de.
