Flying high on the motion sculpture

Move around the moving sculpture’s different levels

On entering the MobiVersum an enormous sculpture, not unlike a root, immediately catches one’s eye. Its design, and the challenges it offers to children’s motor skills, is quite unique. 
Depending on age and ability, everyone from young children to adults will be able to move around the sculpture’s different levels. Even the smallest visitor has a special area at the MobiVersum, a place where they can crawl and learn about movement. The bottom of level of the motion sculpture has a designated parent-child action area. And as motor skills increase, the scope of activity expands and exciting things like sound bodies and slides are discovered.
Free access to visitors daily during opening hours.

Driving the “Raupenrad” or a “Dreisel”

At an open driving track children, teenagers and adults can explore a number of flamboyant vehicles – and try to get them moving. These prototypes, which were especially developed for the Autostadt, demand a healthy dose of curiosity and a desire for experimentation. Because it’s not always immediately obvious how one gets them to move. This is why they have creative names such as “Dreisel” or “Raupenrad” (caterpillar cycle). Each device has a sensory and a motor challenge which allows the visitor to discover mechanical motion anew. To move forward one of the devices requires a caterpillar-like movement while on another steering is only achieved via the pedals or by moving one’s upper body up and down. This demands physical strength and challenges balance. Would-be drivers who are tenacious and patient are richly rewarded. It’s the unfamiliar movements which galvanize the vehicle to rotate around its own paxis or which swivel out its rear that cause the most fun. Autostadt staff are always on hand to advise and help.

Driving school for kids

Throughout the year, children can have fun practicing traffic safety skills in an interactive simulator. Developed by the German Road Safety Association, the course is designed to simulate real traffic situations. Once the route through the virtual city starts, children are required to deal with various traffic situations, e.g. the zebra crossing, bike and pedestrian paths, traffic flow and traffic lights; these can be influenced by accelerating, braking and steering.
