9. The BMW Welt. Facts & Figures.
Opening the BMW Welt on 17 October 2007, BMW has established a new milestone in Munich, at the same time creating a venue for dialogue and unforgettable moments.
A truly multi-functional building, the BMW Welt offers a comprehensive experience and place of encounter for all visitors and attracting more than one million guests in the first six months alone, the BMW Welt is already one of the three most popular sights in the Bavarian State Capital of Munich. BMW has been based in the north of Munich with its production facilities since 1917 and now guests from all over the world are able to enjoy an even more intense experience of the world of BMW, ranging from the latest trends and exhibitions through technical highlights and design features all the way to the emotions of the lucky customers able to take receipt of their new car in the BMW Welt.
As a building and an institution, the BMW Welt is a significant interface between the Company, the brand, the products, and the visitor. This is indeed the only place able to offer an overall, all-round experience of the past, present and future.
Together with the BMW Plant and the BMW Museum, the BMW Welt forms one logic whole, the overall experience of BMW. Particularly the vicinity linking this unique building pointing into the future in its architecture with all important areas and facilities of BMW's location in Munich, as well as the option to visit the BMW Museum and enjoy a guided tour of the Plant on the occasion, create this all-round experience.
Precisely this comprehensive perspective clearly bears out the spirit of authenticity and continuity in Munich, the history of the Company, and the most advanced production facilities and technologies used by BMW. The BMW Welt, therefore, brings together the social commitment, the sense of responsibility, and the clear pledge of the BMW Group to the world we live in.
BMW Welt. The Art of Being BMW.
Through its progressive architecture, the BMW Welt is not just a highlight of tourism in Munich, but also an outstanding venue for individualised, highly personal delivery of cars to their new owners. Each year BMW hands over up to 45,000 new cars to owners from all over the world picking up their vehicles in Munich, and a minimum of 850,000 visitors is expected each year - a figure already exceeded by far in the short period since the BMW Welt was opened.
Apart from the exclusive presentation of current car lines and motorcycles, interactive exhibits offer a clear insight into BMW research, development, design, and production, providing the opportunity to experience the BMW brand and the Company from virtually every perspective.
A further point is that the BMW Welt features its own Event Forum equipped with the most advanced technology for events of all kinds the ideal venue for concerts, exhibitions, conferences and live transmissions, as well as receptions and seminars.
The range of catering and dining services is highly versatile, with the BMW Welt offering two restaurants, one bistro and one coffee shop, just as the various shops meet all kinds of requirements.
The Junior Campus, a special, independent encounter area based on the latest scientific findings in child and youth studies, caters ideally for children between 7 and 13 as well as school-children from grades 2-7. Indeed, this is where children and young people are able to discover "mobility with all their senses" in a truly playful manner.
BMW Museum. A Direct Experience of History.
The BMW Museum attracting an average of 200,000 visitors a year was built next door to the BMW Building in 1973.
The concept of the new BMW Museum opening on 19 June 2008 and offering five times the former exhibition area focuses on the fascinating thrill of the BMW brand borne out by dynamism, sportiness, and passion. More than 120 original exhibits, a special guided path for visitors taking them through 25 unique exhibition areas, as well as new presentation technologies cover 90 years of corporate history.
The central path through the Museum guides visitors through time and space, presenting a wide range of overriding issues and individual highlights to 400,000 visitors a year. And last but not least, a multitude of different perspectives, surprising insights and outlooks, as well as the all-round focus of the exhibitions presented strengthens the dramatic qualities of the Museum.
The BMW Munich Plant. Passion and Technology.
The BMW Munich Plant is the home plant of the BMW Group, combining the highest level of engineering and human innovation with genuine passion for the brand. The BMW Munich Plant builds more than 900 BMW 3 Series (Touring and Saloon models) as well as more than 1,400 engines (straight-six, eight-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, high-performance M-engines for the M3, M5, and M6, as well as twelve-cylinders) a day.
The BMW Munich Plant employs approximately 9,000 associates from more than 50 countries the world over, among them more than 700 apprentices. The plant incorporates all technologies in automobile production: press shop, body shop, paintshop, engine production and assembly, as well as a toolmaking shop, the production of interior and seats, and a laboratory.
The BMW Munich Plant is part of the BMW Group's worldwide production network with no less than 23 plants in 12 countries and therefore serves as a "showcase of BMW production" in the context of the BMW Welt. Individualised guided tours offer a unique and authentic insight into automobile production.
