Our new special exhibition is dedicated to the likeable VW Beetle in all its facets. The many variants document the development of an automobile and everyday object to become a successful type and world record vehicle that has been sold millions of times.
A total of 21.5 million cars rolled off the assembly line in 65 years
The spectrum ranges from the KdF car to the trademark of the beginning economic miracle, in which the VW Beetle dominated the streetscape.
ON THE BIG JOURNEY WITH THE BEETLE
The Beetle became a symbol of mobility and growing prosperity and enabled the proud automobile owner to travel and discover the world. The Beetle played a central role on various excursions and vacation trips.
The Beetle was no longer just a means of transport, but has become an active part of the travel company!
THE FABULOUS WORLD OF THE BEETLE
The special exhibition "Beetle Cult" shows superbly lithographed tin Beetles from the post-war years, which can be admired in their excellent original condition.
Beetle tiny in a scale of 1: 160, Beetle models from Japanese production, toy and model cars from the well-known Beetle and lesser-known special bodies to sought-after and coveted original collector's vehicles and much more.
HERBIE, HIPPIE, RACE BEETLE
The hearts of our Beetle fans are guaranteed to beat faster with the classic original automobiles!
The rare Hebmueller convertible from 1949 or the first Beetle with a folding roof (1949), as well as a pretzel beetle (1952), are among other large and small rarities. Herbie, the legendary VW Beetle who became a movie star, can also be admired and he is a good example of how extraordinary a VW Beetle can be.
A Volkswagen with temperament, character and many qualities. In short - a Beetle is a car with personality!
