This is the end. Our last stop... Hello, Munich. Goodbye, Europe. See you soon, Canada.

Our first stop off our overnight train from Berlin was the massive BMW HQ, celebrating the Bavarian motor company with its BMW Welt complex in Munich.

After gazing the new models, we hit up the neighbouring BMW Museum, taking in all its automotive history including the evolution of the 3-Series coupes.

Outside the BMW complex, the surrounding areas overlooked the Olympiapark sports stadiums (built for the 1972 Summer Olympics).

The car museum was full of vibrant, visual displays and automotive art pieces including a floating art piece featuring every BMW model's rear decal.

Strolling around downtown, Munich gave us a feel for its walking nature with its shopping district and public spaces. (Karlstor or "Karl's Gate" in Altstadt, above.)

Despite our brief stay, Munich proved to be an an adventurous city full of history and bold architecture. It felt more upscale and touristy than Berlin and not a bad way to end the trip.
