There are tons of ways to explore Berlin – on foot, by bus, or on a bike, but none of these are anywhere near as fascinating as riding a Segway.

On board this one-man means of transportation, as it’s officially known, you’ll feel as if you’re almost floating through the streets of Berlin, taking in all of the city’s best-known and most important sights along the way.

Segway Tours were first declared legal in 2008, and since then, they’ve been a huge hit with folks who prefer things a bit more unusual and off-the-wall. One thing’s for sure: “discovering Berlin on board a Segway is a whole lot of fun.” The vehicle is steered simply by shifting your weight. But don’t worry, a short practice session takes place prior to every tour.

City Segway Tours have been there from the very beginning, and for this reason, they’re the true experts, when it comes to finding your way around Berlin’s streets with these bizarre contraptions.

But seriously! What’s the big deal? Why is riding a Segway so popular?
  • Sightseeing can be exhausting – sightseeing with a Segway, on the other hand, is not
  • Give your tired feet a break – a guided Segway Tour is a great way to do just that
  • Sightseeing by bus – means long lines and limited window seats
  • Sightseeing on a bike – can be taxing, too, and let’s face it – you ride your bike in your everyday life enough as it is
  • Walking tours – you’re better off resting your feet; you’ll need them for dancing later on
  • Be the center of attention – on board a Segway, you’re bound to attract a few stares
  • It’s just a heck of a lot of fun – what more reason do you need than that?

Information about the tours

City Segway offers two regularly-scheduled tours, the City Tour and the Afternoon Mini Segway Tour.

The City Tour takes 4 hours, and covers notable Berlin highlights, including Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall, Potsdamer Platz, the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, and the Museum Island.

The Afternoon Mini Segway Tour is more about just having fun cruising around, and therefore is better-suited to Berlin visitors who’ve already “been there, done that.” This tour takes only 1 and a half hours, and goes along Unter den Linden boulevard to the Brandenburg Gate and back to Alexanderplatz.

So, all that’s left is for us to say: “On your Segways, get set, go!”
