Heidelberg: Segway Tour

2. Heidelberg: Segway Tour

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.

What people are saying about Neckar River

Our Segway tour to the mouth of the Neckar was a complete success. A brief introduction to the operation of the Segway and the test drive in a parking lot gave us the necessary security and the following time passed as a colorful mixture of city tour and fun moving with a fascinating driving device. Herbert, our guide, did a great job. Our small group of pensioners, all over 70, had a lot of fun and will certainly not be the last time they rode a Segway. Thanks!

The Segway tour was fabulous. Our guide Kevin was very nice, knowledgeable and fun to be around. He gave us an excellent tour of the nice spots in the city with interesting commentary. Five stars to Kevin and this tour. I recommend this tour to everyone visiting Heidelberg.

Great and for beginners slightly demanding tour. My girlfriend and I had lots of fun. The guides Herbert and Christina did a great job. We can definitely recommend this activity.
