August Horch Museum Zwickau
Our museum is located in the town of Zwickau, in Western Saxony, the place where August Horch worked for decades. Right in the heart of the former Audi plant, one of the birthplaces of automotive history from Horch to Audi and further on to the “Trabant”, you may experience legendary automotive history in a comprehensively refurbished building with a completely redesigned exhibition in an absolutely unique atmosphere since September 10, 2004.
It is not only August Horch who is honored on the two floors of the exhibition area. The visitors may familiarize themselves with the manifold developments made during more than a century of automobile production
The highlights of Saxony’s automotive art, such as the 1911 Horch Phaeton, will fascinate you just like the DKW F1 micro car with the first standard front wheel drive ever, a sensational vehicle in its time, the
elegant Horch luxury models or the Audi and Wanderer automobiles.
An interplay of object presentations and mises en scène characterizes our new exhibition. The reproduction of a historical street of houses and various scenarios from the 30ies and 50ies of the last century will take you to eras long gone by, putting the exhibits in their proper historical environment.
Cars and prototypes of the post-war period, above all the »legend on wheels«, the famous Trabant, will put you under their spell. The flair of
about 70 large exhibits will enthrall not only car and technology buffs. Informative displays, animated scenes and historical video material document interesting facts and connections.
Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday: 9:30 AM to 5 PM (1st Thursday of each month: 'til 9 PM
