Dear visitors,

the supply of semiconductors remains tight worldwide. As a result, we must continue to expect short-term adjustments in production at all our locations. This volatile situation makes it difficult to reliably plan tours of Audi production. To avoid cancellations at short notice, we have decided not to offer physical plant tours until further notice. However, you are cordially invited to experience the production digitally with the live tours of Audi Stream. Simply select the appropriate time slot and topic and register.

Or visit us at the Audi Forum and take part in an exciting and informative tour of our facility. Secure your place in the online ticket shop. We will inform you here as soon as factory tours are available again.


A8 lightweight technology

Dive into production of our flagship - the Audi A8. The path for visitors has been re-designed and leads through the newly-built production halls. The new A8 represents the future of the luxury class.

During body construction, you will see how around 500 robots work together perfectly to assemble the high-tech A8 body with fascinating precision. For the first time, the body integrates more materials than ever before in a standard Audi model: carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic, magnesium, hot-formed steel and aluminium. 14 different joining techniques make this multi-material construction possible. The new assembly hall, in turn, has production areas that can be used both efficiently and flexibly. Modern conveyor technology, such as the height-adjustable push platforms, enables employees at Audi to work ergonomically. You will gain insights into the latest production techniques and smart logistics processes such as the intelligent driverless transport system.

Welcome to the future. The new Audi A8.
