Day 7: BMW Museum

The next day, we slept in a little (8 am) and headed towards the Welt. The architecture of the Welt is striking and very impressive. Unfortunately, I guess I expected a little more on the inside and was let down. Apparently August isn't a very good month to travel to Europe, everything closes (the BMW, MB and Porsche factory tours were all unavailable) and they took this time to renovate the Welt. The only things they had inside were the M Models and the new 1 Series. After a few minutes looking around we walked across the street to the BMW Museum. We would be taking the BMW City Tour later on and the City Tour includes access to the Museum, so we paid and made our way inside. The videos and photos of the moving balls don't capture how impressive it really looks in person. Truly a marvel of German Engineering. The Museum is well laid out, and has a good mix of the old, semi-old and new. It was nice to see a E46 CSL in the flesh, as well as the various M Engines and of course the CSL and Mclaren F1. After the Museum we went across the street and had lunch at Pizza Hut (the Restaurant at the Welt was overpriced) before again going to the Welt to sign some papers and drive the Beast.
