Day 22 2nd day in Munich

sunny 28 °C
View Touring Germany on RickAdderley's travel map.

This is the 2nd day of our hop on hop off bus tour and there were 2 places that we really wanted to see, BMW World and the 1978 Munich Olympic Village, they were both at the same stop but on different sides of the road. We took over 90 photos today 🙄 mostly at BMW World.

BMW World also has a museum associated with it and the whole complex encompassed their headquarters tower as well. As a bonus - motor bikes also featured in their showroom and museum, that's why we spent most of our time here.

The 1st stop on this route was King Ludvic's castle which was spectacular:

Then we stopped at "our" stop, BMW World:

The tall building houses the Head Offices, the round building to the right is the museum, the 2nd photo is BMW World, the showcase show room.
We will only show a "few" photos here. If you're not a morothead you may wish to turn off 😅😆😂. Walking through the show room we were initially presented with the new "M" range:

...and Rolls Royce:

We then went across to the museum, well, what an eye opener...

It was delightful to see the old cars:

Although not easy to see behind the glass this is a R75/5 which was my 1st Police bike in Thames Valley.

We then went across the bridge to the 1978 Olympic Village complex. The main complex itself is covered in a translucent type roof to represent the alps:

The original olympic pool is open to the public when not being used for competitions:

The observation decks of the Olympic Tower offer an unsurpassable view of the entire city of Munich. It measures a total of 291.28 meters and is located on the premises of the Olympic Park. The world-famous tower also houses a revolving restaurant:

We returned to wait for the bus, completed the route and returned to our hotel for a cold beer and wine before venturing out for our evening meal.

We decided to eat Chinese tonight, this is the 1st time that we have eaten Chinese in Europe and it was deliciouse:
