Just wondered...I miss Germany haha

I went last September passing through few weeks before my A1 was due. Saw my first A1 in Berlin a few days before

Go visit Audi if you ever get the chance! :-D truly amazing place especially the A3 production line!

Hi yes I went in July 2007 on the Audi Flying Start two/three dayer. I saw the A3 production line and thought it was brilliant. Due to not keeping time earlier on in the day we only had about 20 mins in here before the museum tour, but very interesting indeed.

The A3 production line tour was €20 I think and it gives you free access to the museum

I have been to Audi Ingolstadt.
I took an "Audi Driving Experience"-tour with the RS5 for a weekend, and got to see the production line from start to finish :)

Impressive!

I've been to the VW production line in Shanghai, they don't make A1's there but they were making Polo and Fabia, but they are run like military precision and very efficient.

Any info welcome. We'll be in Munich late July and my husband (total Audi fanatic) immed wondered about getting to Ingolstadt. Do you book for factory tour and if so - thro dealer or how? I've already checked out train times.

I'll just peruse the shops in Ingolstadt itself and hopefully soak up some sun whilst drinking coffee!!

The factory is a long way from the shops! He will need to get a taxi from the railway station, which will cost about 15 euro. The train costs about 40 euro return, each (take the ICE, not regional). To be honest, you would be best getting a hire car for the day, for around 80 euro, which gives you flexibility.

As for the tour, you have to book in advance, but it costs very little for the A3 tour (which I would recommend), at no more than 5 euro. Entry to the museum you can book when you book the factory tour, but you can also just turn up for that. I think that's about 15...not sure.

How do you book? Visit this page for more information!

Finally, if that isn't enough, you can also visit the Audi Forum at Munich airport, just by terminal 2!

You're a star, thank you, Jae. He used to have the A3 (now the proud joint owner with our son of an A5 - they both downsized????!!!) so that tour will be interesting for him anyway. Hire car would be more feasible if he was under 70 but worth thinking about.
I'll get going on organising when we get back from this so-called rest break in Suffolk!
