BMW headquarters, Munich.



Built by 1972 and standing at 331ft, the BMW warehouse is one of the most notable landmarks in Munich. The main tower consists of four vertical towers separated in the centre. The four towers are suspended from the main tower, not actually touching the ground. There is also a museum across the road which you can visit.
 Located near the Olympic Village (for the 1972 Munich Olympics), it is easy to get to via underground train and holds tours (in German and English) which last up to two hours, allowing you to see firsthand how BMWs are built (it may be worth booking your tour in advance ). If you don't get time to go, you can get an amazing view from the Olympic Tower in the Olympic village, which is only a short walk away.
