From aircraft engine to boxer
The beginnings of the BMW plant in Berlin lie in aircraft engine construction. In 1939, BMW finally took over the Brandenburgische Motorenwerke and integrated it into the Group. In the 1950s, parts for the Munich motorbike production were manufactured in Berlin for the first time, and from 1966 onwards, the final assembly also took place in Berlin. With the start-up of the /5 series in 1969, the move to Berlin was complete and the BMW motorbike plant in Berlin-Spandau was born.
Since then, BMW Motorrad in Berlin has been building dreams that become reality. You can admire them in the BMW Motorrad Welt next to the factory premises in the listed brick building. Here you can immerse yourself in the world of motorbikes on around 1,000 m2. Let yourself drift, get inspired and be fascinated.
