BMW HQ & Museum seen from the Olympiaturm (TV Olympia Tower).
The German luxury automobile manufacturer BMW has a strong presence in Munich (München) including its famous 1970s four-cylinder head office building and major factories.
The iconic BMW Hochhaus (Tower), or Vierzilinder (four cylinders), was completed in the early 1970s and declared a national monument in 1999. The BMW Museum is partly housed in the still futuristic-looking silver circular building – sometimes referred to as the salad bowl, which is right next to the company head office and was constructed in the same period.
