Cologne by Segway | Travel

Saturday, 3 March 2018

At the end of February we had a week off from university and so my flat mate Julia and I spent a few days in Cologne , Germany! Whilst we were there we were lucky enough to be invited on a Segway Tour of Cologne which was so much fun and I thought I would do a blog post to tell you guys about it!

Our tour started at 10am with us meeting our guide Paula at one of the squares in the centre of Cologne. We walked back to the offices with her where she taught us how to use the segway. Julia was a bit nervous at first as neither of us had ever used a segway before but we soon got the hang of it!



One of the things that we really loved about the Segway tour was how much more of the city you get to see. I always make sure to do some kind of tour when I go to a new city, usually it's one of the free walking tours as they are easy and usually pretty good! This time we decided to go with the segway tour and it was so much fun and we got to see so much more of the city than we would have on a walking tour. It was a three hour long tour so a similar length to the walking tours but of course, as you are on a segway, you cover much more ground. We went up and down the river into newer parts of the city, we crossed over to the trade centre (which we learnt was actually one of the first deportation camps in WW2) and of course we saw lots of the old town.

Paula was a great tour guide, she was so funny and really knowledgable about the city and it's history and throughout she asked us if we had any more questions and wanted to make the tour as special as possible for us. It really was an incredibly fun morning and definitely a great way to get to know the city! The only downside for us was that it was quite cold and because you are stood on the segway in the same position, it can make you a little bit frozen but of course that is nothing against the tour itself, just maybe go for taking a segway tour in the summer if you're thinking about it or dress very warmly!

I really would recommend the segway tour in Cologne, it was so much fun learning how to use the segway and doing a tour on it meant we covered so much of Cologne and learnt the history of lots of different areas of the city. Definitely check Segway Tours Cologne out if you head to Cologne or other cities in Germany as the same group also run Segway Tours in Berlin, Munich and many more cities in Germany!
