BMW Museum in Munich and the Olympic Tower

On the second day we asked Oliver, the hostthe apartments where we stayed, what to see in Munich, and he advised us to go to Olympic Park and see the BMW museum, as well as climb the Olympic Tower, which we did. A big plus, when you stop at the locals, they will tell you much better and better.

By the way, you need to pronounce this famous brandBi-eM-Vi (BMW), and not as we used to clumsy, in Russian - Bae-eM-Ve. But this is what the Americans say in general Bi-Double-Double, what makes the Germans laugh. Here you can argue about the pronunciation, but this is what the German said to us, I did not invent it myself.

Where to stay in Munich

Munich is quite an expensive city, so hotels needsearch and book in advance, you can hardly find anything here. It is best to “walk” in advance on the map and estimate where it will be more convenient to live and what is the price. Here are two good hotels where you can stay, I recommend - Hotel Senator Munchen and Pension margit. The reviews are good, the location is good, the metro is near.

Or, if you are ready to live in an apartment with the owner according to his rules, communicating with him, etc., then couchsurfing to help.

Olympic Park in Munich

Olympic Park (in Olympiapark German) wasbuilt back in 1972 for the Olympic Games. It houses: the park itself and a huge lake, the Olympic Stadium and sports grounds, the Olympic Tower. And next to it is also a salon, a factory and a BMW museum.

The easiest way to get to munich metero by U3 to the station Olympia-zentrum. The Olympic Park is located near the city center, so you can combine with a walk through the old city of Munich.

When leaving the metro station Olympia-zentrumthe first thing you will see is a spaceship aliens, who arrived to learn from the automotive industry. It is a spaceship that resembles a pompous BMW Welt auto show, where you can walk around and take advantage of expensive and good cars, as well as sit inside, imagining yourself to be a dashing driver crossing the vast Germany in a convertible.

Two floors on which, besides the cars,are presented, all sorts of different useless and entertaining things, in one way or another advertising the brand. Although this is not a BMW museum, you can spend a lot of time here.

More interesting, for loversautomotive industry can be a tour of the BMW plant, passing several times a day (10 times, probably), and a couple of times in English. It is better to book in advance, especially if you want to get on the English-speaking guide.

Olympic tower

The next target was tall televisiontower - Olympic Tower (Olympiaturm in German) with a view of the whole city. Entrance to the attraction costs 4.5 euros. I really liked the lift on the elevator - it lays my ears, and inside something falls somewhere.

Of course, we were “lucky” with the weather - it wasovercast and it was raining, so we ran out to the open area, took pictures and ran back so as not to wet the cameras. Inside there is a covered observation platform. The names of the sights of Munich are marked on the fat from the foreheads of tourists.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
