Enjoy a Private Tour of Munich by Bike

Our Munich City Bike Tour is a fantastic way to explore Munich, and opting for a private tour for your family or friends guarantees a personalized experience with undivided attention from your guide. Booking a Private Tour offers you the extra flexibility adn exclusivity to ensure that this tour fits in seamlessly to your time in Munich. Enjoy cruising through the streets with your own personal expert tour guide at a time that works best for you, and crafting the information based on your interests. Opting for a private tour allows you to experience Munich just how you'd like to see it without the distraction of outside guests, and covers more ground in just a few hours than you ever could on foot, making it perfect for families, parties, corporate groups, and more. 

The tour itself is a perfect orientation to one of Europe's most fascinating and charming cities. Your private guide will entertain you with sights and stories about the city, covering its turbulent past and beyond. If you're interested in World War II history (Munich being the former headquarters of the Nazi Party) or more modern culture, your guide is an expert on all things Munich and Germany. We'll also touch on plenty of modern Munich culture including the famous English Garden surfers, Odeonplatz, Bavarian Parliament, and of course our beloved local farmers markets!

When in Bavaria, do as the Bavarians do. A highlight of this tour is a stop at a massive beer garden in the beautiful English Gardens where you'll have the opportunity to chat with your guide, all while enjoying some local cuisine and drinks. Your guide will fill you in on how seriously the Bavarians take their beer, and more.

  • Expand/Collapse I haven't been on a bike in years, is biking in Munich difficult?

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount. Munich is a very bike-friendly city and cars are used to sharing the road with cyclists and pedestrians. If you're not sure how you'll fare, feel free to stop by our shop a bit early and take a few practice laps until you are comfortable on the bike.

    We believe there is a tour for everyone, therefore each of our bike tours fall into one of the following categories, which you can find identified on the individual tour page:

    Leisurely Cycling - Perfect for novice bike riders or those that haven't been on a bike in years. You should have average balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. We will be riding on bike lanes, through parks, and occasionally with traffic. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    Intermediate Cycling - You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Riders should be prepared for small hills, riding single-file behind other riders, and riding in a group. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    Athletic Cycling - Tours that fall under this category are by no means strenuous, but they cover a greater distance than our other tours and/or spend more time cycling in the roads than our other tours. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. We vary between single-file & group riding. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety. We have children join us on tours at this level all the time so it completely depends on your confidence with a bicycle!

  • Expand/Collapse Do I need to reserve a bike separately?

    No - the bike is included with the bike tour, so just bring yourself and we will take care of the rest!

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for kids?

    Our tours are great options for families and kids are very welcome. We have several types of kids’ bikes, seats, and helmets to make sure everyone of all sizes is comfortable on tour. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour. 

    • Our city tours are very casual, with only slight elevation gains, on varying surfaces from smooth gravel to pavement. It is necessary however that any person planning on taking our bike tours to have at least some experience riding, and should be comfortable riding in a group.
  • Expand/Collapse What happens if it rains?

    All of our tours run rain or shine. If it rains during tour, we do our best to take cover, but sometimes we are exposed to the elements. We have pocket-sized rain ponchos for sale in our shop and we highly recommend that you purchase one before tour. If you don’t use it, we will buy it back from you- it’s a bit of a rain insurance policy!

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

    Unfortunately, 4 hours does not give us enough time to enter any of the sites that we see on our City Bike Tour. This tour is designed to enjoy the city from a broad perspective and come away with a greater understanding of its history and layout. Some people would want to spend only ten minutes in the museum while others would prefer 3 hours.

    Additionally, German Law restricts museum guides to their authorized officials.

    TIP: Should you want to keep your bike longer, and many people do, you get a discount on rental following a tour. Your guide, and our shop staff, will be happy to show you exactly how to go back to any sites you would like to explore further or visit the interior.
