Our guides show you their city. Come with us on an interesting and unforgettable tour of Zürich with the innovative Segway!

The tour begins at the Renaissance „Zürich Tower Hotel“ in the trendy Züri West district (Kreis 5). From there we cross the Limmat to Unteren Letten and drive along the water’s edge to the popular river baths of Oberer Letten. Here locals and tourists alike enjoy swimming in the middle of the river in the summer months.

We learn the varied history of the Platzspitz in the heart of Zürich and see the Swiss State Museum. From here we roll past the main train station to Limmatquai and the old town and on to Niederdorf, colloquially and lovingly known as Niederdörfli. We continue our drive to Predigerplatz to see the astounding church of the same name. From here we cross the Limmat at the Urania Bridge, pass the operations centre of the municipal police and reach the Lindenhofstrasse where we enjoy fantastic views of the university and the Urania Observatory.

Continuing our tour we cross the Bahnhofstrasse, pass the Paradeplatz and drive to the Bürkliplatz, from where we enjoy beautiful views over the lake and on to the old town, the heart of Zürich. After a short visit to the Fraumünster, another of Zürich’s important landmarks we drive on to the Bahnhofstrasse. This shopping street is famous for its expensive boutiques, clock shops and luxury hotels and is the center of Swiss banking.

We begin our return journey past the Gessnerallee Theater house, the former indoor horse riding arena and the symbol of free creative theatre and dance. We drive to Alte Kaserne and continue along Langstrasse until we arrive back at our starting point, the Renaissance „Zürich Tower Hotel“, where the tour ends after 2.5 hours.
