48 hours in Munich with BMW

48 hours in Munich with BMW
A few weeks back I was invited by BMW on a very exciting press trip to Munich to celebrate the launch of their new BMW 4 Series Convertible. We arrived on a gloomy Tuesday morning and headed straight to our hotel, the uber-chic Flushing Meadows. One cup of coffee later, I was out exploring the beautiful city before the rain made an appearance.

There’s something so fascinating about this city and for all its elegance and grandeur, Munich is more about traditions and old-fashioned values. I loved walking through the old town, listening to street musicians play and admiring the pastel-coloured buildings. My favourite areas of Munich were the Glockenbach quarter and the very bohemian Schwabing area. Both have lots of cool cafes and independent shops.

The following day we were picked up by our driver and dropped at the BMW Welt, where we had a short presentation from Markus Mahn, Product Manager of the BMW 4 Series and Tobias Krengel, BMW Design.

The NEW BMW 4 Series should be near the top of your list if you’re considering investing in a luxury sport convertible. Whether you’re enjoying its elegant and refined features or looking for a powerful and fuel-efficient engine, you’ll most definitely come away with a positive impression after a test drive.

When you start the car, it gives you a heart pumping note (thanks to its new inline 6 cylinder engine) that simply exudes power. The interior is sleek, with spacious and comfortable seating despite being a 2-door coupe. The dashboard layout is very similar to our BMW 5 Series, a little dated if you’d ask me. The blinkers on the side view mirrors are a nice touch, but I would probably find them distracting at night. All in all, a superb car – pure joy to drive, stylish and powerful!

After a scenic drive through the beautiful Bavaria in our BMW 4 Series Convertible, we arrived at the prestigious Lanserhof – the most modern centre for health in Europe, just in time for lunch. After a tour of the grounds, we had a lecture on nutrition from Nicole Heidinger, followed by a soothing body massage. Despite the terribly cold and rainy weather, we had an amazing time and I’m already looking forward to drive this beauty again!
