City Center, Munich –
It’s hard to beat Mike’s Bike Tours for unique sightseeing trips around Munich, most of which are led by gregarious expats and attended by a diverse clientele hailing from all corners of the globe.
Tours begin with a brief overview of the city’s history, after which the participants pick out their bikes and set off. With stops at multiple beer halls along the way, the tours are a terrific way to form instant bonds with new people over a couple of oversized Bavarian beers.
The highly amusing English-speaking tour guides keep the four-hour journey fun and lighthearted as they impart some fascinating tidbits about the history of Munich. Highlights of the tour include the Chinese Tower in the Englischer Garten, where the tour will stop for a snack and a brew, and the Schwabing neighborhood, where participants can check out all the hip bars to visit later on.
The tour ends at the offices of Mike’s Bike Tours – an ideal last stop considering the company is conveniently located right behind the Hofbräuhaus.
All types and ages, though mostly college-age travelers in the summer, including many English speakers.
Amusing tour guides.
Food available at the beer garden during the tour (not included in tour price). Tours by appointment only December through February.
Tours €24/4 hours or €39/all day.
Any day mid-March through October, and good-weather days in early March and November.
