Whether you are a motor vehicle/BMW enthusiasts, the BMW Welt and Museum would be nice place to visit in Munich. The BMW Welt (Welt means World in German) is a futuristic exhibition centre where you can find the latest products and even some concept models. The Museum, on the other hand, is a live history book and you can find loads of historical models and information of the company there.
The BMW Welt, as you can see in the lower left of the picture, is a rather flat shape building with a twisted cone structure as the entrance hall. According to the design explanation, it’s modelled as a cloud floating above the ground with a tornado (the twisted cone) in one side. The roof was filled with solar power panels and it’s really a building from the future.
The BMW Museum is like a bowl with a large BMW logo at the roof top (middle part in the picture). It’s actually a redevelopment of the previous museum in 2004 and reopened in 2008. The big logo at the roof top is really eye catching when you look from above.
What if you are not really interested at all in BMW? Well, the good thing it’s just situated next to the Olympiapark which is a beautiful park built for the 1972 Olympic Games. In fact, this picture was taken at the Olympic Tower where you can have a breathtaking view of the Munich city.
