What to Expect
Through Nuremberg on a segway, whether you are young or old, fit or not. This is fun, excitement and culture in one.

We would like to invite you to a unforgettable city tour through the old town of Nuremberg and are looking forward to showing you this wonderful city from a very different perspective.

The guided segway city tour through the old town off Nuremberg starts with an introduction to the techniques of driving a segway. This driving instruction takes place on the island Schütt in the centre of Nuremberg. To warm up, we will do a few laps on the island Schütt in front of the bridge to the Cinecitta, Germany's largest multiplex cinema.

And then it can begin!

First, we will stay on the island Schütt, which was once heaped up (in German: aufschütten) with debris and sand from the two arms of the river Pegnitz that flows around the island, and roll to the Herrenschiesshaus. It was built in 1582/83 for a crossbow rifle association, who used the ditch behind it as a shooting range. Then, we will head off to the tower Laufer Schlagturm. This dates back to around 1250 and is one of the few remaining parts of the last but one city fortifications.

Afterwards, we will visit the Renaissance house “Pellerhaus” on the strong>Egidienplatz square, which was built in the early 17th century in mannerist tradition. With its beautifully decorated courtyard, this XXX was the most representative town house of Nuremberg, until it was almost entirely destroyed in 1945. Now, we are standing in front of the outer ring wall around today’s old town of Nuremberg. From here, we have a great panorama view of the Nuremburg Castle with the Luginsland tower, which, as the name reveals, was used to spy out neighbouring Grafenburg Castle. The Kaiserstalllung, the former storehouse for threshed grain, and the Pentagon Tower round the image off. The latter is also called “Old-Nuremberg”, as it is over 800 years old.

Through the tunnel-gate of Tiergärtnertor, we will drive onto one of the most beautiful places in Nuremberg, the square Tiergärtnertorplatz. This picturesque square seems to be closed off and captivates through the combination of timbered houses, such as the Albrecht Dürer’s House and the Pilatus house.

Our next station will be the street Weissgerbergasse. It is home to the Weissberger’s, who gave the street its name. With over 22 old, mostly timbered craftsmen's houses, the Weissgerbergasse is one of the best kept streets in the old town of Nuremberg. Then, we will roll on through the Weissbergergasse to the Weinstadel. It was built in 1446-1448 just outside but leaning onto the second last city fortification, as a leprosarium, where lepers could live and eat for three days in the Holy Week. Later, it was used as wine store, which gave the house its name. After this, we will pass the Max Bridge. This massive stone bridge is the oldest bridge in Nuremberg, since 1457, it crosses the river Pegnitz. Here, we will have a lovely panoramic view of the old town with its bridges, the river and remarkable buildings. After only a few meters, we will reach the Unschlittplatz square. This square became known far beyond Nuremberg in 1828 through the foundling Kaspar Hauser , who was found here. Nearby, there is a flea market, which is a small island surrounded by the two arms of the river Pegnitz and used to be the pig market.

In the centre of the city, we will find the main market. It mirrors the rich history of Nuremberg: Until 1349, this was the Jewish quarter, later the “Green Market”. Every year, the Display of Relics and the Easter Mass, as well as tournaments and other public amusement events took place. The main attractions are the fountain "Schöner Brunnen" and the Church of Our Lady with the clockwork figures. Then, we will pass the city hall, the Sebaldus Church and the Heilig-Geist-Spital and reach the Hans Sachs Square. This is where, until 1945, the residential house of the famous meistersinger and shoemaker was.

Before reaching our starting point on the island Schütt and finishing the tour, we will stop at the memorial plaque for the main synagogue that was destroyed in 1938.
