Segway tour of Munich
Not on foot and not in a car. With a Segway, you’ll become acquainted with Munich in no time flat and a circuit on the electric two-wheeled vehicle is simply fun. There are meanwhile plenty of providers from whom it is possible to hire just the vehicles or book a guided city tour as well.
Far off the beaten path with a VW van and groups of no more than eight persons. It’s all about municipal building developments, new cuisine trends, the alternative scene and, in a nutshell, good times. The tours are four hours long, with a compact version only taking two and a half hours, and there are special seasonal trips at Christmas and Oktoberfest.
Tram 19 also runs not far from Marienplatz, passing many further tourist attractions on its route. For the price of a regular fare, you get to see many sights from Stachus and the Botanical Gardens to the Maximilianeum.
