Whether you love cars or not, you might want to visit Munich’s BMW Welt. BMW, probably the most famous, and still the best, luxury car brand in the world, has its headquarters in Munich, Germany. So while you are staying in Munich, a visit to the BMW Welt can add to your experience. It is near the Olympic Stadium and just beside the BMW Plant.
The BMW Welt is a giant showroom showcasing the company’s products throughout the years, including its sedans, minis, racing cars, electric vehicles, and even its Rolls Royce coaches. You can also take a glimpse at the company’s concept cars, which we may see on the market soon.

You can enter the BMW Welt for free. For those planning to purchase a BMW, they can do so from the Welt. However, for those who don’t have enough money but want to try driving a BMW, some of the cars can be rented by the hour (around EUR 75 per hour).
