I have called for your help to help the writers of Away Goal - Euro Chimes: Wolfsburg - click here, as so far I have had some response, but I and they - FSF - want more!
In the meantime here is some info that I am able to 'leak' that will be in the next edition, which should come in handy - anywhere that specialises in 'veggies' is being looked into...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
Getting there and getting around
From the city centre or direct from the railway station, it takes you about 10 to 15 minutes to walk to the ground.
Alternatively, you can take bus no 201 or 202, going to Nordstadt or Wendschott and get off at a stop called Autostadt.
On matchdays, your ticket for the game allows you free travel on all public transport vehicles of the local public transport company called Wolfsburger Verkehrsgesellschaft (WVG)
There are no lockers at the train station but you can deposit your bags and rucksacks at the ground if need be.
Getting to the Ground by Car
Take the A2 towards Berlin, change at junction Wolfsburg/Königslutter onto the A39 towards Wolfsburg. Take the Weyhausen turning to the Park and Ride area Kästorf (3.200 parking lots and P+R-Shuttle-Service). To walk from there takes about 15 minutes.
Alternatively, you can get to the parking areas P3 and P4 at Allerpark (2.200 parking lots) via the A-road called B188. On matchdays, there are special bus services from there to the ground. To walk from here takes around 5 minutes.
Eating and Drinking
Porschestrasse is the pedestrian shopping street that runs all the way through town from the railway station to the Holiday Inn. Along here there are a few cafe bars including the smart Cafe Celona which is on the corner of Kleisstrasse. At the top end of Porschestrasse opposite the Holiday Inn is the Paulaner Botschaft, an authentic German pub with menu to match.
About 2 minutes walk from Porschestrasse is Kauthof with about a dozen bars - from Porschestrasse go past the VFL Wolfsburg club shop, cross Schillerstraase and through the Arch.
Between the station and the stadium (10-15 minute walk) and before you cross the bridge are 3 bars, two are Italian owned, Bar Azzurri and Bar del Sud, and opposite on the other side of the street is the trendier looking Robert de Niro's.
For the beer connoisseurs, a beer house with its own brewery is about 3 miles west from the town centre, it is called the Brauhaus Fallersleben and is on Schlossplatz, 38442 Wolfsburg.
Places to eat in Wolfsburg include La Rotunda and La Fontana Pizzeria's, Sausalito's Mexican restaurant, all located on Porschestrasse or its side streets.
Also looks like there will be a Christmas market on from the 2nd December.
