I really enjoyed the 2.5 hour of Regensuburg BMW factory. However, I am in manufacturing as a tool maker so it was special for me. The technology was amazing. I believe there are 2,300 robots in the body shop welding the 240 pieces together for each beautiful BMW. The paint shop was amazing to watch the robots paint the best cars in the world. The press shop was also interesting watching them press out the body parts and see the BMW start from a coil of steel. And then the final assembly buidling where the BMWs are put together for their very happy future owner. The factory is very clean and quiet. I just think you should have some interest in manufacturing to really enjoy this tour. I should have left my GF shopping some place before I came to the factory. She did not enjoy it to much but she has no clue about how anything is manufactured and put in her hands. Thank you BMW Regensburg for the great tour. I would love to go again some day.

Lots of interesting things to see here. If you haven’t seen robots in action this is there place to go. It is worth the time. And there is a special connection if you own one of these beauties.

We went on this tour as part of a group and were assigned to smaller groups for touring the factory with separate guides. A gentleman in our group asked a question at the beginning of the tour and although you might say it was a pretty silly question, the guide responded very unprofessionally. Instead of politely responding, she belittled him in front of the group. This set the "feel" for the tour. I found her abrupt and almost apathetic approach to the tour to be a turn off of what would otherwise have been a very good experience. I was fascinated by the robotics and the whole logistical and computerised manufacturing processes. As the owner of a BMW I was really keen to do this tour and do recommend it - hopefully you will have a better guide! There is a lot of walking involved, so be prepared.

Our family of four went on the BMW Regensburg plant tour recently. Initially I thought just my husband and son would do this activity, and my daughter and I would pass, but I am very glad we all went along. The sheer size of the plant and logistics employed to keep it running are quite amazing. We saw the paint application area, the presses at work, final assembly and more. Watching the massive robots at work was interesting to all. The tour lasts 2.5 hours with a break midway to sit. The tour guide we had was extremely knowledgeable. NOTE: There is one English tour per week, currently at 3:00 PM on Fridays. (Multiple other options if you are able to do a tour in German). Also the minimum age for the Regensburg plant tour is 6 years. Some other BMW plants do not allow anyone under age 14 to tour, so be aware of that if touring a different plant. MUST reserve spots ahead of time, so do not just show up. If looking to use public transit, there is a bus that goes from the Albertstrasse Bus Terminal directly to the plant. Enjoy!

Went on the tour with some work colleagues and might not have chosen it on my own. I can now recommend this tour to those who are not sure. I really enjoyed it. Some provisos, however: It is a lot of walking with little chance to rest or have a comfort break. You must be prepared to walk for nearly 3 hours up and down stairs, so not suitable with young children or others with mobility issues. The electromagnetic fields created by arc welding in the body shop make it unsuitable for those with a pacemaker or similar implants. As an engineer it was full of wonder of the 9100 tonne presses stamping out body panels an shaking the ground, and the choreography of the many robots handing pieces of metal from one to another, or welding. The assembly line where the engines and wheels are added with wheels, fueled up and driven away. The wonder of the huge body storage warehouse and the paint shop. All very interesting.
