At BMW's European campus, there is a special section for customers taking delivery of new cars that offers snacks, Web access, and the chance to chat with other couples awaiting delivery of new BMW sedans, coupes, or convertible cars.
A concierge can arrange free guided tours of the factory and BMW Museum, where rare vintage cars are showcased. Other galleries trace the evolution of popular models and peek into the future of alternative fuels. Adjacent to the museum, BMW World contains current models, restaurants, shops, and displays.
Customers are offered a choice of Driving Adventures itineraries though Valerie Wilson Travel, which takes care of all the details, including booking flights and hotels and arranging drop-off in the last city.
Itinerary 1, Lakeshore Luxury, goes from Munich to Milan, via Lucerne and the famed Gotthard Pass, to Lake Como. It’s a route scattered with historic villas, museums, and picture-postcard drives.
Itinerary 2, Alpine Getaway, sends your BMW into the Bernese Oberland, with a night at the magnificent Victoria Jungfrau Grand Hotel. Nearby hiking trails are dotted with cafes that invite lingering at sunset. This itinerary finishes in Lausanne, on scenic Lake Geneva.

Dropping off your new BMW in Munich, Lausanne, or Vienna is included in the car's European Delivery price. Then it’s a 6-8 week wait for the Beemer to arrive home.
