What's the best way to sightsee your way across Munich, Germany? The answer may lie with BMW's corporate museum. A new program allows tourists to be chauffeured across town -- which is home to the company's headquarters -- in a classic Bimmer.
Organized through the museum, the 3-hour tour places guests in a vintage BMW. Depending on the weather and availability, guests can be ferried about town in the likes of a BMW 326 or 335 Cabriolet from the 1930s, or the famed 502 "Baroque Angel" from the 1950s.
The tour starts by bringing visitors to BMW's Munich plant, which is currently responsible for 3 Series production. After that, guests are whisked to the company's historic vehicle collection, located within the BMW Classic center. Following that, drivers lead guests on a route that winds through the old city center and ultimately winds up at BMW's flagship showroom, where guests are treated to a champagne reception. At the end of the tour, guests are returned to the museum, where they receive a certificate, gift box, and a ticket for the BMW museum itself.
At nearly $122 per passenger, the tours are somewhat expensive, but they are limited commodities. Trips are available only on select days through October, and it's still unknown if BMW plans on reviving the program in the future. If you're a BMW fan and want to see the sights in classic fashion, now may be the opportune time to plan a trip to Munich.
