You can include "Production - Compact", a 2 hour all-around tour where you get a lot of information and will take you around most of the facilities. This may include Audi's "Press Shop", where the metal is shaped to the body. In the Body Shop you will see welding robots perform a fascinating ballet, as you are allowed to witness a "wedding" - the association between transmission and body.

BMW Welt

Bavaria is also known as the home of BMW. Here you can get technical insights, making the visit very popular with school groups. A visit can include a tour that takes you to the most exciting places in the factory - from up close you are going to see how steel is bent and pressed to the body in the "Press Shop", as you get past the Body Shop, Paint Shop and Engine shop. Moreover, you will get famililar with the production of interior parts and seats, and finally see where it is all assembled andmakes a beautiful BMW.

From farm to fork

Together with their collaborators Herrmannsdorfer Landwerkstatten seek to be self-sufficient. Here the emphasis is on everything being local produce - in order to reduce the pollution from long journeys.

Visit Dachau, Hitler's first concentration camp

The place was originally a munitions factory from World War I, but in 1933 the empty buildings were converted to the first concentration camp, with room for 5,000 prisoners. As more camps came around, Dachau got status as the main camp. Despite this, the camp was to small and within five years the prisoners were set to build a new camp next door. The new camp included 30 residential barracks, each with room for 208 prisoners, which meant that there could now be over twice as many prisoners in the camp. After the outbreak of war, the camp got  crowded, and in the end more than 1,600 prisoners lived in each barrack.
