The continuing success of the BMW Motorrad brand means that each year, many more new visitors arrive in the bustling town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen on the first weekend in July to witness around 40,000 friendly motorcyclists from every country imaginable besieging this well-to-do Alpine sports resort. Last year was the biggest and best yet, with a great mix of product highlights, tours, shows, exhibitors, fantastic food and drink, and a packed events, activities and party programme.
To the uninitiated, BMW Motorrad Days is a free festival, organised by BMW Motorrad, just as a way to say “thanks” for being part of the worldwide community that make the brand what it is.
Our advice is to start planning now, from what route you will take, to whom you will travel with, and where you will stay upon arrival. Many options are available, from organised group rides via dealers to club runs to individual tours. As for accommodation, there is a massive choice available in the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and surrounding villages – but only if you book early enough. Every year it’s the same story: all the rooms get sold out and some visitors are left with long journeys to and from the event each day. So remember, it’s first come, first served so reserve your rooms early (please send your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org) – or simply pack your camping gear and enjoy our great on-site facilities.
