At the BMW site in Leipzig, over 8,000 employees work (of which around 5,800 are BMW employees). Up to 1,500 vehicles roll off the assembly line every day.

You will not only gain an insight into the body shop and the assembly halls, but also experience live how vehicle parts for BMW and MINI are produced from huge sheet metal blanks in the press shop. You will also gain a brief insight into the paint shop and learn what role artificial intelligence plays in the painting process. Be there and discover how the basic framework of a BMW or MINI is turned into a fully-fledged vehicle. The BMW Group plant in Leipzig is not only one of the most modern and innovative automobile factories in the world, it is also an architectural masterpiece.
