Oktoberfest Special (English)
Our Oktoberfest Tour is the perfect way to combine seeing the sights, having a blast, and finishing in time to enjoy the Wies’n festivities! We start in the afternoon at 3:30pm allowing you to sleep in from the evening before. Please also note that this tour is about enjoying your time and seeing the sights - we don’t take the Segways into the Oktoberfest area!
On this tour we’ll see many of the main sights of Munich: Odeonsplatz, the Hofgarten, Surfer’s Bridge, Marienplatz, the Hofbräuhaus and much more! You’ll have a great time cruising with us on the Segways and enjoy a pleasant afternoon in Munich in between the Oktoberfest revelry.
There’s too much to see and enjoy in Munich to simply spend all your time at the Oktoberfest Wies’n. We’ll show you the sights, explain the history, give insider tips, and get you ready for an evening out.
Please note, it’s the law and we have a zero-alcohol policy as these are motorized machines.
From the pre-renaissance to postmodern, these world class museums in the "museum quarter" have something for every taste.
Bizarre, tolerated, and not-to-be-missed are the surfers riding the waves in the Englischer Garten.
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 and park next 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. 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.
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.
