Expats moving to Wolfsburg should have an easy time settling into life in this German city. The city’s relatively compact size and excellent road and public transport network make getting around easy and stress free.
Accommodation in Wolfsburg is generally of a high standard and expats will likely be able to find a place to stay for significantly less than they would spend in other German cities like Berlin or Frankfurt.
Attractions like the famous Autostadt draw thousands of visitors every year, and with the city’s large selection of museums, galleries and national parks expats are sure to find things to keep themselves busy over weekends.
While it’s unlikely that expats in Wolfsburg will experience much culture shock, the language barrier may cause some minor issues. Learning as much German as possible before arrival should help ease the transition for new arrivals.
Wolfsburg’s biggest employer is Volkswagen, and most expats relocating to the city are likely to move here for jobs in the auto manufacturing industry. This industry has attracted workers from all over Europe, and new arrivals will find themselves in a vibrant and diverse city.
