I’m fairly sure it was free entry for pcgb members and yes you need to book.

Last time I took the factory tour there was no fee but you do need to book in advance.
The not unreasonable cost for the museum visit was made even more reasonable on production of one's Porsche V5, not sure if this is still the same.

Literally just visited (last weekend). What a brilliant time we had.
Factory tour was amazing and the museum was equally as good.
As others have said book in advance. If you’re a pcgb member you can get them to book it for you. You do pay now but is not expensive by any means and it’s discounted for pcgb. Two of us went and I think after the discount entry was about €20 for both so really cheap.

If you get the opportunity try the restaurant (top of museum).
Lovely place...Good views of factory and great steak.
This however isn’t cheap though but great for a special occasion.

We’ll go again soon !
Enjoy it thumbsup

Definitely book the tour in advance as others have said. It gets booked up months in advance. And check they are open. The factory shutdown occurs every summer for workers holiday and maintenance on the lines.

Something new to try is http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?p=1477618#1477618

Museum and restaurant closed on Mondays but factory tours still operate.

Museum no longer accessible from the restaurant after hours.

Group of us there this week, stayed at the V8 hotel in Böblingen Thumb

Mercedes museum well worth fitting in as well.

Just back from this trip and yes what a great day out. Museum entry is a bargain 6 euros i think with a pcgb card, and factory tour about the same. Both were really quite staggering and must rate as a must see if you get the chance. I drove to Zuffenhausen in my c2s and as an aside what a pleasure it is to drive at significant 3 figure speeds without nervously looking out for police cars and cameras. The Germans are generally good drivers and the autobahns feel much safer than France for example, with minimal tailgating/bad habits, in spite of no speed limits.
Cheers
Rick

I emailed them this week - Unfortunately, we do not offer factory tours from 13. July 2019 to 9. September 2019. In this period the factory is closed due to our plant holidays.
