Embedded in two large countrysides, the Harz to the south and the Lüneburger Heide to the northwest, Wolfsburg presents itself as a young, modern city of the 20th century. Its existence is due to the building of the Volkswagen factory. It was Juli 1st in 1938, when the 'Stadt des KdF-Wagens' was founded by decree of the Oberpräsident of Hannover. Its population was about 900 people, that were living in three townships. Because of the unequaled rise of Volkswagen until it became the worlds largest industrial enterprise and automobile company, the city, which is called 'Wolfsburg' only since 1945, was developing.
The number of residents was going up from 22,000 in 1948, 50,000 in 1958 to 85,000 in 1963. A land reform with effect from June 1st 1972, added more than 40,000 residents and an area of about 170 km². In Wolfsburg do live about 123.000 people on an area of about 203 km² today.
