Auto Union Is Back - Exhibition at August Horch Museum

The August Horch Museum in Zwickau, Germany shows nine different vehicles, made by the former Auto Union group.

This exhibition is about the 2nd phase of the Auto Union history. Set up in the early 1930s and comprising DKW, Audi, Horch and Wanderer Auto Union thrived before the 2nd World War.

But Auto Union found itself wiped out by the war: in 1945 all of its plants lied in a Soviet-controlled zone, so the company had to restart almost from scratch. A new factory was set up in Düsselddorf in 1949. In the 1950s two brand names: DKW and Auto Union were used. In 1958 Daimler-Benz came to the rescue and then in 1964 the Auto Union Group was swallowed by Volkswagen.

There are nine cars and motorcycles shown from the 1949-1964 era. The exhibition lasts until June.
