The BMW Experience: BMW Welt & the BMW Museum in Munich

We decided after struggling for four years in Washington with a used VW Beetle, which was a real dog of a car, to invest in a new BMW for our three years in Budapest. We've never had a car quite like this before, but what a well-engineered vehicle! While ordering it from the factory in Munich, I saw that if you picked it up in person, you could tour BMW Welt (BMW World), the BMW factory and the BMW Museum as well as have the car "presented" to you with a flourish. One look at pictures of the buildings was enough to convince me that I simply had to see and photograph them for myself. So we went and were delighted with the experience. I would recommend anybody in the vicinity of Munich to pay the BMW facilities a visit -- you won't be disappointed!
