Munich's lord mayor (Christian Ude) has yet expressed that he wants another Munich bid for the Winter Olympics. Should Munich bid? Should they bid with their 2018 plan or should they work out a new plan?

Just my possibility of an improved Munich 2022 concept:
Ice Cluster (Munich)
- Olympiastadion (70,000) - Opening & Closing Ceremony - legacy: possible IAAF Athletics World Championships, possible venue for TSV 1860 München
- Olympiahalle (15,000) - Figure Skating & Short Track - legacy: concerts, sports events, etc.
- Olympia-Eissportzentrum (reconstruction with about 10,000 seats) - Ice Hockey - legacy: venue for EHC München
- Event Arena (installation of about 6,000 seats) - Ice Hockey - legacy: venue of FC Bayern München's basketball players
- Olympia-Schwimmhalle (with temporary seating 4,000) - Curling - legacy: public pool and training centre
- Olympic Oval (temporary venue for about 10,000) - Speed Skating

- Olympic Village - same as 2018
- IBC and MPC - Messe München, so same as 2018
- Media Village - to be built near the IBC and MPC

Snow Cluster (Garmisch-Partenkirchen)
- Große Olympiaschanze (35,000) - Ski Jumping, Nordic Combined & Mogul Skiing - legacy: Four Hills Tournament and training centre
- Gudiberg (15,000 not sure) - Alpine Skiing (Slalom) - legacy: ski run and skiing world cups
- Hausberg Board and Ski Arena (temporary for 14,000) - Ski Cross & Snowboard - legacy: ski run
- Hausberg Sliding Centre (to be built for 12,000) - Luge, Bobsleigh & Skeleton - training centre, possible world cups
- Kandahar (18,000 not sure) - Downhill, Giant Slalom, Super-G, Combined - legacy: ski run and skiing world cups
- Grainau Arena (to be built for about 20,000) - Nordic Combined, Cross Country Skiing & Biathlon - legacy: training centre, some competitions

- Olympic Village - same as 2018

Is there a large convention centre in Munich big enough for a speed skating track.?

I know the Turin Skating Oval was turned into a conference and exhibition venue post games.

There are some big convention centres in Munich, but their halls are too small to host speed skating. At the moment the Event Arena hosts many exhibitions and some congresses. After the games, the velodrome may take over all the events who are normally held at the Event Arena right now.

The difference being the oval was built then converted, not an exhibition centre first being built then converted to an oval.

If Munich bids it has one supporter here. :D

I think would be a better choice as its about three minutes quicker then Garmisch (using google maps) and it eliminates a stand alone venue (Kognisse) now it becomes part of a cluster.

I support Munich as Europe's next Winter Olympic host. Just don't know if or when they will bid.

Of course I would support a Munich bid again... (although I would love to see Berlin or Hamburg hosting, too)

I think you may have tiped it in incorrectly. With Google Earth it says:
Munich to Garmisch: 89.7 km, 1h 7min
Munich to Berchtesgaden: 159 km, 1h 45min
Another issue for a Berchtesgaden is the long ways within the cluster. From Ruhpolding (Chiemgau Arena - Biathlon, Cross Country, Nordic Combined and possible Ski Jumping) to Schönau (Kunsteisbahn - Bob, Luge and Skeleton) it's almost an hour to drive.
I think with a Munich bid there's no way ignoring Garmisch.

Munich 2022 ? Then how about Berlin 2024 ? Will the German prefer to host WOG rather than SOG ?
