The BMW Plant Tour. Passion and Precision
The Plant employs a workforce of around 9,000 people from more than 50 countries around the world, including around 700 apprentices. As a part of the BMW Group’s worldwide production network, the BMW Munich Plant builds more than 900 cars and up to 1,400 engines a day. As representative of all of the BMW Group’s international production facilities, the BMW Munich Plant, right next to the BMW Welt, offers guests a direct insight into state-of-the-art automobile manufacture. The tour through BMW’s original plant offers an exciting insight into all areas of automobile production. The experts guiding the tour naturally focus on the guests’ specific requests and questions. In its concept and route, the BMW plant tour follows specific content-related criteria, giving guests access to all automobile production technologies at BMW Plant Munich: the Press Shop, Body Shop, Paint Shop, Engine Shop, the Production of Interior Equipment and Seats, as well as Assembly.
Meet us 10 minutes before the tour at main entrance of BMW Museum (Am Olympiapark 2).
When the honourable citizens go to bed it´s nightwatch time. Old legends become alive when the nightwatchman tells tales, historic facts and anecdotes of his century-long life. With the flickering lights of the lantern you follow him (or her) through the old town of Munich. He knows all rat runs, secret paths and corners in the city. Equipped with a halberd and his flapping coat he guides you through the dark streets.
Meet us at Gasteig lobby at 8:40 PM.
The Nightwatch Tour is fully booked! If you are still interested and committed in joining, please sign up on the waiting list.
The King's Castles Neuschwanstein and Linderhof in Oberammergau
In the solitude of the mountains, King Ludwig II built two of his dream castles: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. The tour allows you to visit both of these great testimonies of Western architecture, followed by a short shopping stop in Oberammergau. You will have about four hours time to visit Castle Neuschwanstein and have lunch in Hohenschwangau. The tour will conclude with a visit to Castle Linderhof.
Meet us at 7:45 AM between Gasteig and Hilton (Rosenheimerstr. 15). We will return to the same location.
