Ten years after it first opened, Transparent Factory has welcomed its one-millionth visitor. The lucky guest was Andreas Tischmeyer from Hanover who, along with his family, received a special guided tour of the Phaeton production line to mark the occasion.
The guests of honor were given a tour of special production areas that are not normally open to the public. “This was a unique opportunity to follow the Phaeton production line from start to finish”, commented an enthusiastic Andreas Tischmeyer. After their special guided tour, the Tischmeyer family was chauffeured back to their hotel, in a Phaeton of course.
Around 100,000 guests visited Transparent Factory in the past year. In the first half of the current year, visitor numbers increased by around 40% compared to the previous year. The majority of visitors are from German-speaking countries.
Since the factory first opened to the public in March 2002, there has been more than 52,000 guided tours. 150 employees in the visitors’ service provide tours in 14 languages, with 20% of guests making use of this service. On average, there are 22 guided tours per day.
