Full Release after the jump
19.04.2012 Munich. As the classic car season gets under way, the BMW Museum city tours in historic BMW automobiles are about to resume as well. Participants can explore Munich’s leading sights in true style – with a chauffeur on board. These limited city tours take place on select days between April and October 2012, starting at 11.00 and 15.00 hrs and lasting around three hours. The city tour season begins on Sunday, 22 April 2012.
The tours set off from outside the BMW Museum, heading straight for BMW Welt and onto the large vehicle delivery platform which is normally reserved exclusively for buyers collecting their cars. From there the historic cars drive into the heart of the BMW plant, where the new BMW 3 Series range is currently coming off the assembly lines. A visit to BMW Group Classic’s historic vehicle collection affords exclusive glimpses of the treasures on wheels that span more than 90 years of BMW history and are normally not accessible to the public. After a small snack, the chauffeur takes his passengers down Leopoldstrasse to Odeonsplatz and around the old city centre, passing many sights along the way. Guests are then taken to the current exhibition at the BMW showroom at Lenbachplatz. After some three hours, the stately classics make their way back to the BMW Museum.
At the end of the excursion, each guest of the BMW Museum city tours is presented with a certificate of participation, a gift box and an admission ticket to the BMW Museum together with a Museum guide.
Depending on availability and weather conditions, the city tours are carried out in vintage models from the 1930s, such as the BMW 326 Convertible and BMW 335 Convertible, and 50s classics like the BMW 502.
