Discontinued: Private Tour by Rickshaw

Discontinued: Private Tour by Rickshaw

We're sorry, this activity is no longer available.

Here at Fat Tire we’re unabashedly biased that seeing Munich by two wheels is the best way to appreciate the city.  If gliding on a Segway or pedaling yourself isn’t your preference, then enjoying a rickshaw / pedicab might be just the ticket!

The rickshaw scene in Munich has exploded in recent years, and rightfully so because for two people it’s an ideal way to be shown the sites, hear fun anecdotes about the “village of a million people”, and create a truly fun (dare we say, romantic) memory.

Your rickshaw driver will greet you at your hotel and give you a 2,5-hour tour of Munich.  Our guides are experts at explaining the city and showing you both the main and hidden sites.  Since this is just the two of you on the rickshaw, we can also get to places larger groups would have to leave behind.  Also, because this is your private experience, we can tailor this to your specific requests, and even drop you off elsewhere, such as a restaurant, instead of back at your hotel.

Fat Tire Approved:  As part of our commitment to bringing you the best travel options to supplement our tours, this fantastic experience is operated by a trusted local partner.

    • Bookings for up to 2 people are a group price of €210

    If you have more than 2 people you may book multiple rickshaws. Please remember that each rickshaw can hold only two people. For example, if you have 5 people in your group, you will need to book 3 rickshaws.

  • Our shop is just off Karlsplatz 4 (Stachus), the bustling square between the Main Train Station (Hauptbahnhof) and Marienplatz. At the Karlsplatz fountain with your back to Karlstor and the pedestrian shopping street, turn right along Sonnenstrasse. After 50 meters, you will see our shop in the courtyard of Karlsplatz 4, on the right-hand side. The closest metro station is Karlsplatz (Stachus).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Expand/Collapse Why opt to choose a private rickshaw tour?

    Because rickshaws are tons of fun!  You’ll be up front, right in the action as your guide whisks you through town.  Because it’s just you - or you two - you’ll be able to see not just the main sights, but also sights that buses or larger groups can’t get to.  On the same token, you can also cover a lot more ground than you could by foot.  Relax, put your feet up, and get ready for a really fun time!
