There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Munich. It’s the perfect tour for those who are new to the city as well as those who are very familiar with it.
Riding on a Segway isn’t difficult, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one. This tour begins near the main station in central Munich. Enjoy a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weight between 100 and 250 pounds and be at least 16 years old to participate.
With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.
This Segway tour is a fantastic orientation to Munich, providing an opportunity to see virtually all of the popular sites as well as those hidden ones that are “off the beaten path.” The tour will stop every few hundred meters to see the sites, hear fascinating stories, take pictures and discuss Munich’s history. The knowledgeable, English-speaking guide will explain present-day and lifestyle facts about Munich while also answering any and all questions.
Some of the highlights include the Hofgarten, a garden in the center of Munich; the Munich Residenz, the former royal palace of the Bavarian monarchs of the House of Wittelsbach; the Viktualienmarkt, a daily food market and square and much more.
There will be time for a stop at the Chinese Tower, home to one of the largest beer gardens in Munich, located at Englischer Garten. Enjoy a relaxing break with a cheese and snack platter, a pretzel and a non-alcoholic beverage (drinking alcohol is not allowed during Segway tours).
This Munich Segway adventure concludes back at its starting point in central Munich.
