The tour starts from either Hull, Newcastle or Harwich, arriving in Rotterdam, Amsterdam or Hook of Holland respectively the following morning after taking an overnight ferry.
Monday 14 June (Day 2)
Meet at E&R Classics by 12am (around 60-80 miles from all of the Dutch ports to here). Reserved BMW parking and a light lunch at the ER Classics showroom (a fantastic venue for any car enthusiast). The lunch will also serve as a ‘meet and greet’ and first briefing.
Drive to Rüdesheim via the Rhine Valley.
The hotel is right in town, with good parking. The hotel this evening is B&B only, everyone can go out and explore the town and riverfront.
Tuesday 15 June (Day 3)
After breakfast, we will head straight onto the road, with a choice of scenic routes to the ‘Romantic Road’, before taking a very leisurely afternoon stopping in the towns along the ‘Romantic Road’. Dinner is included for everyone at the hotel in Ulm tonight, along with the second briefing (Regensburg, Munich & Sinsheim plans over the next three days).
Wednesday 16 June (Day 4)
BMW Facilities to be toured and times to be confirmed three months prior to the tour. If total numbers on the tour are low, the price may need to increase to cover the cost of the BMW facilities.
Ulm to Regensburg, to start off with on the Autobahns and main roads, then onto more scenic routes as we get closer to Regensburg and BMW Plant Regensburg on the town outskirts.
The plant tour lasts for about three hours and leads through different production and outside areas. Plant Regensburg assembles the 1 Series, 2 Series Gran Tourer, 4 Series convertible, M4 convertible, X1 and X2. In the past it was the birthplace of most E30s, E36s and E46s.
After the tour we drive to Munich where we will be staying for two nights at the hotel on B&B basis only. In the evening either relax in the hotel beer garden or head into Munich City centre.
Thursday 17 June (Day 5)
Facilities to be toured and times to be confirmed three months prior to the tour. If total numbers on the tour are low, the price may need to increase to cover the cost of the BMW facilities.
Guided Duo-Tour (BMW Museum/ Welt) – 90 min.
BMW Group Classic guided Tour – 60 min.
Return to the BMW Museum for more time looking around and/or visiting the Olympic grounds across the road and the Olympic Tower for views over Munich. Again in the evening either relax in the hotel beer garden or head into Munich City centre.
