Our Day City Segway tour is the perfect tour for both those new to the city and Munich veterans.
For the beginners, this tour will offer you a fantastic orientation and give you an opportunity to see virtually all of the sites you’ve read about as well as hidden ones off the beaten path. Through the various sights and stops we’ll make Munich’s history from humble beginnings to contemporary force come alive.
For the veterans, we’re positive you’ll learn new facts and stories about Munich that you’ve never heard. And we’re sure you’ll both agree that riding a Segway - and being part of an intimate tour - is the best way to see the city. Come join us for an unforgettable time!
In about 4 hours on our Day City Segway Tour we’ll show you all the main sights of Munich, stopping every few hundred meters to soak them in, hear fascinating anecdotes, take pictures, and discuss Munich’s history. Your knowledgeable native English-speaking guide will also explain present-day facts and lifestyle facets about Munich while being available to answer your questions. You’ll have a great time as you glide by the sights and everyone - and we mean everyone - stops to take a look at us!
Home of Munich’s first museum and impressive Ancient Greek architecture, Königsplatz is a showcase of Ludwig I’s endeavors to transform Munich into the Athens on the Isar. In the former NS headquarters in the neighboring buildings, Britain, France and Italy signed the Munich Accords with Hitler’s Germany. The annexed Sudetenland would become a failed attempt at appeasement before the chaos of WWII.
Grandiose in scale, it’s home to Bavaria’s parliament and now also a school for the gifted.
Time stands still in Munich’s gem of a farmers’ market.
One of Europe’s largest municipal parks, this park and its beer gardens have become a Munich icon.
This striking yet harmonious museum is much more than a story of the Holocaust.
From the pre-renaissance to postmodern, these world class museums in the "museum quarter" have something for every taste.
Germany’s first and largest technical museum, its hands-on exhibits are fun and exciting for the whole family.
Built in 1896 to celebrate twenty-five years of peace after German Unification.
Bizarre, tolerated, and not-to-be-missed are the surfers riding the waves in the Englischer Garten.
The inscription on Munich’s triumphal arch says it all: "Dedicated to victory, destroyed by war, calling for peace."
Munich's prestigious university was also the site of the White Rose resistance movement, when students defied National Socialism. For distributing pamphlets they were sentenced to death.
The Staatskanzlei, or Bavarian Chancellory, is a harmonious mix of original and post-WWII architecture and sits nestled at the edge of the former royal gardens.
This majestic courtyard behind the former royal palace is meticulously kept, a great spot for pictures, and site of some of Munich's best street performers.
Home of the longest ruling dynasty, the Wittelsbach family, we explore numerous courtyards of this extravagant royal palace turned museum. Adjacent to the formal royal palace, and at the end of Germany’s most expensive shopping street, lies Munich’s elegant opera house.
Beneath the illustrious Feldhernhalle and magnificent Theatinerkirche lies part of Munich’s darker past: Hitler’s failed Beer Hall Putsch ended here.
Each of our tours begins with a 30-minute orientation session in the plaza adjacent to our office. We will practice on the Segways so that everyone feels comfortable and ready to go out and conquer Munich. The Segway is appropriate for virtually anyone aged 15 and older, provided they possess a motor vehicle license of any kind. Minors under the age of 18 must either be accompanied by an adult or have an adult complete our insurance paperwork in advance of the tour. Unfortunately, anyone under the age of 15 and pregnant women will not be permitted to participate. Again, you must be at least 15 years of age to participate. IDs will be checked for those looking underage.
For insurance policy stipulations, we are required to take a EUR 200,- damage deposit per party to cover damages to the Segway. This deposit will be taken by credit card (Visa, MC, or Amex) or cash at the time of the tour and refunded afterwards provided no damage to the Segway has been sustained.
Additionally, City Segway Tours has a strict policy against alcohol consumption and Segway operation. Alcohol is forbidden on all Segway tours and any client suspected of drinking before or during a Segway tour will immediately forfeit their tour and no refund will be given.
Please also wear flat, comfortable footwear. Flip-flop sandals and high-heeled shoes are not safe while riding Segways.
Lastly, participants must weigh between 100 lbs (45 kgs) and 255 lbs (117kgs) to use the machine properly.

By far the best and most entertaing city tour I've ever been on!
I want a Segway!
After a good training session, we found how easy and fun a Segway is to ride/drive. We all started off a bit wobbly but we were soon pushing the 20kph top speed with huge grins on our faces.
We got to see the city of Munich in a completely different way. Train or tram is restrictive and walking is distance limiting - with a Segway you get to see the whole historical city in 4 hours, and you can stop when you want. We found that we gelled as a group quickly and we were even a tourist attraction ourselves.
Our Ozzie tour guide, Freddie gave us a fabulous potted history at each point with embelishments. Who'd have thought that the history of Bavaria could be told in such a funny way? I reckon if he'd been my school history teacher I might have been more interested in the topic.
Thanks Freddie and Tex.
