This card comes from my pen pal Melody. 🙂

Wolfsburg is the fifth largest city in the German state of Lower Saxony. Located on the River Aller northeast of Braunschweig (Brunswick), it lies about 75 km east of Hanover and 230 km west of Berlin.

In 2013, Wolfsburg ranked as the richest city in Germany with per capita income of $128,000, thanks to its thriving auto industry. Wolfsburg is famous as the location of the headquarters of Volkswagen AG, and for being one of the few German cities built during the first half of the 20th century. From its foundation on 1 July 1938 as a home for workers producing the “KdF-Wagen” (VW Beetle) until 25 May 1945 the city was called “Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben”. In 1972 the population first exceeded 100,000.
