Germany Trip - BMW plant - tour company?

Jump to last reply

I am looking into traveling to Germany with my husband to tour a BMW plant and do general sight-seeing. This is the very beginning stages but things we are interested in:
- BMW plant is not optional - which part(s) and any tips?
- We brew our own beer and "enjoy" beer ;) Thoughts? We'd love to do a factory-type tour or "pub crawl" type tour, etc.
- My grandfather was a translator in WWII, so I am interested in the history, but he wasn't on the battlefield. If there are good museums, etc, though, that would be interesting.
- This is a stretch - My family is "Russian German" but that is about all I know. Growing up we had a very different "strudel" than what people in the US think of - not a dessert with fruit, but rather, a sort of rolled dumpling with ham and potatoes. The recipes I remember (and make) are all similar to that - lots of potatoes, rice, ham - nothing very fancy. The only thing that I think was probably traditional the resembled a "sweet" was kuchen. Does that help?
I'd love to find out more about our roots, but I just don't know where to start but if any of that "rings a bell" so to speak, let me know what you think.

I don't think we'd do a group tour, but what would people recommend?
