I miss Top Gear (BBC). It was (and still is) my go to show. I throughly enjoyed the ridiculousness of it all. The cars, the challenges and the cars! When Wolfgang asked if I would capture the Cars and Castle tour, I was very, very excited. Yes for the cars. Yes for the castles. But more yes for the Autobahn! At least I thought...
From the Porsche Museum, to BMW World to the Castle in Heidelberg: This tour was a lot to take in. We were able to see and do so many things! Mercedes, BMW and Porsche plant tours. Castles and buildings that were hundreds of years old. Visiting downtown Munich and smaller towns that each have their own uniqueness, history and style.
What really fascinated me about Germany was not its rich history or the amazing cars; it was the art and design. The brilliance of a glass building with a look through wall or a staircase in the BMW museum. There was this element that wasn't just about squares and lines, it was about art.
This way of allowing space for art made me appreciate the design of the car so much more. The line between function and design. Between bonkers and brilliance. Leaving a legacy and progression.
One post is not enough to do justice to the tour, but I will post more as I edit. If you love cars, art, Top Gear, history design and food! You should keep an eye out for this tour when it comes up next. You will not be disappointed.
