BMW Museum.

München, Germany,
17th June, 2014.

In the afternoon on the same day, while my brother had a meeting at the HQ and tour at the BMW plant, we've visited BMW Museum and later to BMW Welt (BMW World).

Day three.

Founded in 1913, 'Bayerische Motoren Werke' BMW started building airplane engines in 1917. In 1923, BMW started building motorbikes and eventually in 1928 they started with the production of cars.

Shortly after the Second World War, BMW's factories were dismantled by the Allied Forces and the company was only allowed to manufacture household utensils and bycicles.

In 1950 BMW returned to the production of cars. After a slow start, the company focused on luxury cars, becoming one of the most admired carmakers in the world.

BMW i stands for the future of mobility. At BMW Welt, BMW i shows what this means in concrete form. The focus is on the electrically powered automobiles BMW i3 and from 05 June 2014, the BMW i8.

This i3 is not going to be sold in Malaysia I guess, right?

While waiting for my brother's meeting to end, my SIL and went to the Olympiapark next to the museum. Olympiapark was constructed for the 1972 summer Olympics, and now the park continues to serve as a venue for cultural, social, and religious events such as events of worship.

We had yummy Nutella pancake at the park and went back to the apartment together with my brother afterwards.

P.s. So basically I've visited all three major car museums in Germany; Mercedes-Benz Museum and Porsche Museum in Stuttgart and BMW Museum in Munich. And I think I love Mercedes-Benz museum concept the most!

with love,
