Munich is a city-museum. The buildings, the streets, the parks, and the rich history prove that this is a town worth exploring. The question, of course, is how one wants to see it.
Tours in Munich can be categorized best by the mode of transportation used to take patrons around this beautiful city, whether it’s by foot, bike, car, bus, or even Segway.
For those wanting to walk, there are plenty of options – both free and not – for exploring Munich. Popular with backpackers are Radius Tours and Sandman’s, which both meet up daily at Marienplatz at 10:45am and 1pm, and offer free tours by enthusiastic young guides that work on tips only. For smaller, less rambunctious groups, Munich Walk Tours has daily walking adventures that last just over two hours and cost €12.
Popular with a younger, perhaps thirstier crowd, is Mike’s Bike Tours. Led by gregarious expats, this bike tour, which covers about four miles in four hours, features stops at various beer halls, a trip through the Englisher Garten, and a tour of Schwabing. Mike’s is conveniently located right behind the Hofbräuhaus.
City Segway Tours has also become a very popular, and a less strenuous, way to see Munich. After an in-depth training session on the Segway, patrons are taken on a four-hour day tour of Munich that hits popular sites like Königsplatz, Maximilianeum, Viktualienmarkt, and the Englisher Garten. City Segway also offers private, smaller tours and corporate packages. Tours are given in English.
