Full description

The main attraction Heidelberg offers is not the castle, but the

Philosophers’ Walk

, as it features the best views of the castle. Whoever sees the massive castle ruins from the Philosophers’ Walk is certain to visit them. The appeal of the Philosophers’ Walk, however, cannot easily be spotted from the castle. It’s an insider’s tip which you’ll discover on a Segway. Start the tour from Neckarmünzplatz in front of the tourist office. Float along the banks of the Neckar and cross the Old Bridge, moving towards Neuenheim to the market square. From there, continue to the zoo, the public swimming pool, and across the Neuenheimer Feld with its imposing University buildings via Handschuhsheim to Neuenheim. Here, the path of great minds begins: the Philosophers’ Walk. Enjoy magnificent views and fascinating insights. Afterwards, drive back to the starting point, the Old Bridge.

We are both 60 and wanted to try it out. It worked out very well. Technology behind the Segways is just unbelievable. Small training and then riding all over the town..... some info about the city would have led to 5 stars. Have fun, if you try it out as well!

informative and FUN

This was a great excursion! Our guide was very nice, fun and informative! She was also super nice to wait on my friend and me...we got lost and showed up a couple of minutes late. We did call to let them know, but we were very thankful not to miss this fun trip! Thanks again!

Great customer service and knowledgeable staff hands down!!!

We booked our tour well in advance for two people and even though the other six of the group did not show there was no lacking in the services we received. Plenty of time was taken to be sure we were comfortable with the Segway and then we were off for the grand tour. The guide was great to ask if we wanted the historical tour or just to drive the Segway. We opted for the historic tour however were not disappointed with the Segway driving either. It was truely an all around great experience for my wife and I. Thank you very much!!!!
