In addition to Automotive City, there is a pretty good park with a castle in Wolfsburg. It is probably the youngest city in Germany, it was founded in 1938 for employees of the Volkswagen plant and at first was called the "Stadt des KdF-Wagens". In 1945, the city was renamed to Wolfsburg, after the name of the castle.

The original castle appeared in the 13th century. It was surrounded by moats with water that existed until 1840, when they were removed as unnecessary. Only a small and unremarkable residential tower remained from the first castle. Since 1574, the castle was rebuilt in the Weser Renaissance style with a garden and a park.

After the war, the castle became a home for refugees. Since the 1960s, it was decided to give it to people of art. The organization "Schloßstraße 8" was created in the castle and many famous artists, architects and photographers opened their studios.
