Afternoon Adventure Mini Segway Tour

Tour Description

Our Afternoon Adventure Mini Segway Tour is designed to show you a lesser-seen part of Berlin.  It's the perfect compliments to our Classic City Segway Tour, or a great stand-alone option for your time in Berlin.  A city with a reputation for imposing architecture and a tragic past, this tour shows you a completely different side of Berlin; one with quiet side streets, humble architecture, and a genuine charm that radiates from its hidden neighborhoods.

This tour is a great addition to our famous Classic City Segway Tour, or as your first Segway Experience in Berlin.  These tours are completely complimentary, and visit a totally different set of sites.  You will enjoy heading away from the well-travelled tourist route to see where Berliners work, live, and relax.

Highlights are not left out of this tour.  A journey into Berlin's neighborhoods takes you to significant landmarks, such as the New Synagogue, Monbijou Park, and the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse.  With an influence on what makes contemporary Berlin so special, we delve into the the city's past in the places that have changed the lives for those who call Berlin home.  Stories of the tragic violence during the Night of Broken Glass at the New Synagogue and tales of risky escape attempts at The Wall, to emotional tales of families reunited after a peaceful revolution to Berlin's bright future as a growing high-tech economy make this tour a great way to really feel like "ein Berliner."

In about 2 hours on the Segways, we’ll show you the place we call home.  Led by our native English-speaking guides, you will not only see the sites, but have meaningful discussions, and plenty of photo opportunities.  As with all of our Segway tours, training is included, so even if you have not done our Classic City Segway Tour, you will love this tour!

Tour Highlights



berlin wall memorial at bernauer strasse

Once a place that stood for the tragic division of Berlin, and later the emotional reunification of Germany, this memorial is a truly emotional place.  In a part of town less frequented by tourists, this memorial pays tribute to the lasting legacy of the personal side of The Wall.

This is home to five of Berlin's most famous museums, notably the Pergamon Museum and the Egyptian Museum (now housed in the Neues Museum).



new synagogue

Berlin's most famous Synagogue stands as a tribute to the memories of the turbulent times under Nazi oppression.  The Synagogue is situated just meters from where many of Berlin's Jews were collected before deportation.



stolpersteine
Stolpersteine are the small memorials with a big past.  Marking the former homes of people who where deported during the Nazi Era, these simple markers are a powerful way of making sure history is noticed where it happened, and individual people are not forgotten.
 

kastanienallee

Nestled to the north of Berlin's Mitte, the Kastanienallee is a popular local hotspot, full of cafés and bars, and a place where you will definitely want to return!  Not only is the location for some of Berlin's trendiest places, but it is also the home to some of the city's most charming architecture.

jewish memorial

Berlin's violent past has left many memorials in its wake.  This powerful tribute to the victims of Germany's Nazi Era is a touhing display of the stuggles faced by so many of Berlin's families, in the spot where the history happened.  Learn not only about these neighborhoods, but also their residents, past and present.
