    Take a Segway PT guided tour around the city center and the Rhine promenade. It's a great way to discover the city and get active at the same time.

    The Rheinufer is said to be one of the most beautiful promenades in Germany. There are plenty of bars and cafes overlooking the Rhine — so you can watch the passing boats while having a drink or a meal — and it's also a great place for relaxing and people-watching, especially in the warm summer months.

    If you are interested in airplanes and airports and want to get close to the 'big birds' or learn how an airport looks from behind the scenes, you have to take a tour at DUS airport — one of the largest airports in Germany.
