BMW Group Classic is the branch of the BMW Group responsible for all activities concerning the history of the company and its four brands BMW, BMW Motorrad, MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. It comprises the BMW Museum, BMW Group Classic Services and the BMW Group Archive. Another important element of BMW Group Classic’s brief is participation in top-class national and international events. And it also manages and oversees the technical preservation of every model in a collection now spanning more than 1,400 vehicles, ensuring they are ready to appear in engagements worldwide.
Since 2016, Moosacher Straße 66 in Munich has been the first port of call for anything to do with classic vehicles from the BMW Group. Covering a total area of 13,000 square metres, the site is located around the corner from BMW Group headquarters, which means it is also close to BMW Welt, the BMW Museum and the BMW Group Plant. Besides facilities for attending to all aspects of classic vehicles, such as restoration, spare parts and an archive, BMW Group Classic also houses event and conference rooms of all sizes for any occasion. This historic collection of buildings once included the very first BMW Group plant in Munich, so this is a case of coming full circle; the brand’s past has now become part of its future, too.
The comprehensive array of equipment to be found in their historic workshop and the short distances within the plant network make the BMW Group Classic Center the first port of call for all classic BMW vehicles. They valet, maintain, repair and restore your pride and joy carefully and thoughtfully. Authenticity goes without saying in everything they do. After all, they won’t be satisfied until you are.

Visit Café Mo 66 in the courtyard, where there is always a lively atmosphere – and a number of classic gems to admire.
