The double helix of BMW Welt in Munich with the Olympic Tower in the background

BMW Welt

A masterpiece of modern architecture

Vehicle manufacturer BMW’s very own experience and delivery centre has been known to deliver up to 34,000 horsepower in one day.

Since it opened in 2007, the building that houses the BMW Welt attraction has formed the architectural link between the nearby Olympiapark opposite and the neighbouring BMW Group plant, the BMW Four Cylinder and the BMW Museum, where historical cars, motorbikes and engines, but also future developments of the car manufacturer are presented in a permanent exhibition and regular temporary exhibitions.

The futuristic façade of glass and steel and the characteristic double cone of the BMW Welt were designed by the architects Coop Himmelb(l)au. Behind it are BMW's world of experience and delivery centre. Guests are invited to explore the exhibitions (which feature models from all BMW Group brands) at their own leisure or as part of a group tour. Admission is free.

The bridge inside the building offers a view over an area known as “Premiere”, the point where customers meet their new cars for the first time.

With the FUTURE FORUM, BMW Welt has opened a platform where experts from various industries and disciplines share their visions of the future with interested visitors.  Not only for children and young people, but for everyone who is curious and likes to get creative, there is a lot to discover on the topics of mobility and sustainability at the BMW Welt campus and the BMW Museum: from the vehicle history rich in tradition to the locomotion of the future.

Additionally BMW Welt holds events for the entire family all year round and also houses a stage for cultural events, such as the BMW Welt Jazz Award, lectures, concerts and streaming events.

The park’s culinary offerings include a two-star restaurant - the EssZimmer by Käfer, the Bavarie Brasserie, the Bistro CooperS and the Bikers Lodge. For souvenirs and gifts visit the lifestyle and accessories shop at BMW Welt.
