  • If you dare to go, BMW Museum (I went) you can see the current BMW vehicles, and very pleasant. If you have a car for BMW Welt deep well versed enough to be satisfied.

  • This is the best place to park you car and go into the city by underground. You will get to see the building in the day and night. At night the building lights up and very cool. They have some special cars on show and a must look at. If you are Lucky like me you might get a lift in a classic BMW Isetta. That ride made my day. Dream come true! A hit! If you planning to stay there for 1 day to look at every thing I would do this one 1st for about 1 to 2 hours and then the BMW factory after have lunch and last the BMW Museum.
  • Free entry with a few good eating options. BMW cars and motorbikes on show, some you can sit in/on. A couple of Rolls Royce a quite a few Minis. Some informative displays but, for me, nothing particularly amazing. A shame I didn't have time to visit the factory as I think that would have been much more interesting.
  • We booked a full 3 hour tour of BMW Welt-Museum-Factory, would recommend booking in advance as they fill-up very quickly. It's a good idea to check full schedule when planning your trip, since some tour combinations (preferred language & hours) are only available on certain days. Restaurant reservation before or after the tour have to be arranged long ahead as they getting booked even faster! Tour itself was very informative and fun, 3 hours didn't felt too long, however you'll be on your feet almost the whole time - comfy shoes will feel good! I think older kids (teens especially) will enjoy more than young ones. Bathroom breaks are limited:)
  • For a first time visit to Munich, this is definitely a great place to get started. We took the English factory tour during the day and it was very comprehensive and detailed almost every part in the assembly process (and they do have a water stop in the middle to quench your thirst). There is a lot of walking (1.5-2 hour tour) however, and in some places there is no elevator/lift available, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, it's a very interesting experience and there's lot to do both before and after the tour in actual BMW Welt building.
  • Apparently BMW Welt is the most visited place in Bayern, and I can see why. Even though I work in the automotive industry, visiting BMW Welt is always exciting. Checking out the different cars and their features. Its a great place to practice car photography. The architecture of the building is very interesting as well for architecture photography. And it is free. :)
