Very nice experience when in the region, surely a must to visit, you will see and understand the evolution and origin of Auto Union, as well as the next phases. Impresive vehicles as ref from past.

This is a great surprise. This museum is not so large, but very very well done and well displayed. Very nice display per age and per generation. If you go to Zwickau, do not miss it.

It is a must for any visitor of Zwickau to visit the Horch Museum. Very interesting car museum but very few information in English.

In spite my only speed ticket when entering Zwickau I found Horch Museum the hicghlight of our three month tour in Italy Czeck Rep. Austria, Germany and Sweden. Horchs DKWs, Audis and Wanderers were not displayed too tight, but so that one could see them from all sides.

A really well laid out and curated museum. Provides a fascinating insight into the history of car making in Zwickau and also the roots of the current day Audi. I followed Suzanne's advice and asked for the audio tour (essential if you do not speak or read German) and also asked for the kombi ticket which included the Trabant Museum... More

It shows all makes of Auto Union (Horch, Wanderer, DKW, Audi) and also some cars which were produced after the war at Zwickau (Trabant also called Trabi). In summer 2017 this museum will even be more interesting as they are... More

Beautiful and interesting museum, with really well done exhibitions, unfortunately the Trabant exhibition is 3 km far and if you as going there walking as I did it's a bit too far after having already walked from the train station, there should be a bus anyhow.

We discovered this on a side trip from the autobahn on the way to Dresden. It's only about 10 minutes off the highway and the Lonely Planet book said it was a history of the Audi all the way up to the newest model and also the iconic East German Trabant. Not strictly true. No late model Audis here and... More

This is an amazing museum clearly designed by an expert in the latest trends in museum design. There were interactive displays, videos, and written descriptions on all of the individual displays. The WWII room was especially well done, with multiple videos reflected in multiple mirrors to simulate the chaos of war. There was adequate signage in English to get an... More
