The August Horch Museum brings history and stories to life in the former Audi factory building at an area measuring 3,000 m². Rich traditions and a mature automobile identity are combined in an impressive way.
A petrol station from the 1920's and the Auto Union stand at a 1930's exhibition provide the framework for Horch cars, Audi vehicles and models of Wanderer in Chemnitz, all closely linked to Zwickau through the Auto Union merger. The museum also documents the racing sport successes chalked up by the Silver Arrow cars. DKW's small cars, which played a huge role in spreading the level of motorisation in Germany, can be seen in a street scenery.
A scene with historic machinery includes a fully working transmission system and an engine test rig to provide a glimpse of manufacturing processes.
The glory of the past becomes more tangible when you enter the office of the vehicle pioneer August Horch or the mansion that he lived in.
The period after 1945 with its many models and prototypes, particularly the Trabant, is also widely represented. The current section shows VW vehicles, which were built in Zwickau – Mosel.
