We got back on Wednesday from our world wind trip to Germany. I will blog in several parts, so be patient!
Our flight took off around 5 pm last Friday and we arrived at 7 am Germany time on Saturday. We went straight to the BMW Welt, which translates to world, and were escorted through a customized process. It was an amazing day.
First we checked in and went over the details. We were issued access cards with our names printed on them that gave us access to areas of the Welt that regular visitors could not go to. We could hang out in the lounge area and drink Cappuccino’s or eat croissants…
or walk around the Welt…
or visit the BMW museum…
Not only this, but if you had brought children with you (which we did not), there were hang out areas for them too… a small lounge and a drop off for them to make and customize their own little Beemer.
After relaxing and soaking in the sites a bit, we were taken on the tour and introduction of our car. There was a big flat screen with our exact car (down to the detail) on it and a Welcome (insert name) on it. Then husband got to “test drive” the car on a simulator. You could feel the tension and brakes, learn about functions and have a bit of fun.
Next was the presentation of the car. We descended down the stairs and paused to watch our car rotate around for us. Then we continued down and were presented with extra gifts (a key chain made out of the car metal and initialed, some car wax and a first aid kit) and the car. They went through some details and functions with us and then we were off! Ready to brave the snowy outdoors… … which we drove around the Welt and into the snow and into valet parking for the rest of the day. We then toured the museum, drank more cappuccino and finally drove the car to our hotel.
Stay tuned for part two… the Autobahn!
