If you’re in Munich and at least know what a BMW is, the BMW Welt is a given stop. Here are all togheter at on place; Exhibition Hall, museum and the gigantic factory area with over 11,000 employees. Have a look!
BMW Welt is located right next to the Olympic Park, which was built for the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972. With its futuristic looks it’s hard to miss.
In the picture we see the cylinder-shaped headquarters from above. 101 meters high, and designed by the Austrian architect Karl Schwanzer. Beside the head office, the BMW emblem is the entrance to the museum.
Above we see the outside of the exhibition hall. The architecture has attracted much attention, which is quite understandable.
To catch the main attractions you should expect at least half a day in the area, including a guided tour of the factory. There, you can see almost all BMW models, and special cars including the Bond car. Admission costs 12 euros.
However, something that is free is the exhibition hall which you safely can spend a couple of hours in. Unlike the museum the exhibition hall is more dedicated to BMW’s prototypes and concept cars.
