Segway

Explore Germany’s oldest city on a SEGWAY – the new and unique art of locomotion. The system functions similar to the equilibrium organ in the ear. Normally, if you begin to slowly fall forward, one of your legs will automatically step forward to stop the movement. If you stand on a SEGWAY and lean your upper body forward, the machine begins to move. If you lean back, it is braked. By moving the handlebars left or right, you can turn left or right or even turn in circles.

Fleet size: 9 Segways (8 guests + 1 guide)
Age: ages 15 - 88 (knowledge of traffic regulations required, at least a motor scooter license is required)
Weight: 100-260 lbs./45-118 kg
For safety reasons, a crash helmet is mandatory. Helmets are available free of charge.

Wine Route (Seg & Wine)

Dates: on request

This tour also begins at the Porta Nigra. After a half-hour introduction, you "drive" along the Moselle embankment in the direction of Olewig to become accustomed to the machine. After the Amphitheater, you turn left onto Petrisberg Mountain. The Wine Culture Train begins here with a breathtaking view over the city. You will be guided through the different Trier vineyards and learn how the soil and the climate influence the wines and what makes up the special features of the region. The Segway tour ends in the Deutschherrenhof Winery. You will explore the wine cellar here, where you can look over the vintner's shoulder and learn how grapes become wine. Afterwards, you will taste the winery's own wines and enjoy a great vintner's steak. Guests and Segways will, of course, make their separate ways home . . .
