Although I had been to Germany as a small kid, it has always been on my wishlist to make another (proper) visit after having learned a lot more about this unique and interesting place. In April 2011, I did just that. I jumped on a Lufthansa flight and flew over for 3 weeks and made stops in 5 different cities including Berlin, Hamburg, Hannover and Frankfurt.
The European giant has many appeals for visitors like me, the history, the delicious food, the established culture, the historic landmarks, the famous sports teams, and of course the car industry. Munich was my last stop on my trip, the grand finale. The main attractions were the Olympiapark and BMW Headquarters. After spending some time in Bavaria’s capital, I quickly realized that I was in a pretty cool place. Not only the museum, but the whole city seemed to appeal to me in some way or another, even if at least for the duration of my visit.
At this point, I already knew I would be getting a bimmer in the near future, but having been to the place where this formidable car comes from, only solidified my decision down the line.
