A Day At The BMW Museum Munich

Updated: Oct 9, 2019

We´re starting the day with a walk through the Munich Olympic Park with it´s impressive archticture. The Olympiapark München (English: Olympic Park Munich) in Munich, Germany, is an Olympic Park which was constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics.

Located in the Oberwiesenfeld neighborhood of Munich, the Park continues to serve as a venue for cultural, social, and religious events, such as events of worship. It includes a contemporary carillon. The Park is administered by Olympiapark München GmbH, a holding company fully owned by the state capital of Munich.

This BMW World where customers can pickup their new cars.

Welcome to the museum where we started the tour with the motorcycles first, of course.

Standing behing glass, here´s some impressions of the most stunning bikes build by BMW before WW II.

A sometimes overlooked team, Benetton was in its days one of the most competitive teams the sport had ever seen. The United Colors of Benetton brand came into F1 in the early 80s as a lead sponsor for the Tyrrell team, later for Alfa Romeo, and finally for Toleman in 1985.

Eventually though, they decieded to enter the sport by themselves and as soon as Toleman hit trouble, the Italian brand was quick to buy what was left of the team.

Toleman had already designed a car for 1986, the TG186, and the new owners decided to take advantage of that and simply re-named the car as the Benetton B186, they replaced the pointless Hart engine with a brand new BMW power unit and once that was done, they took it racing.

Enjoy variations of this amazing design.

There also a seperate BMW engine development section.

I didn´t even know BMW also build race boat engines!

The first motorcycle engine ever build by BMW.

Most people are not aware BMW started their business with construction of airoplane engines

Let´s swing over to the cars again where I couldn´t get enough of this 507.

And so we are leaving this heavenly place...
