Originally from the Chiemgau Alps, he came to Munich for his studies at LMU as early as 1987 and since then only has left for purposes of vacation.

Roman joined the Segway Tour Munich Team in 2013. Museum and party is his motto. His guests will also notice that on his tours – historical background paired with esprit. The result is a mix of history and stories, which is fun all the way. Moreover, Roman offers guided tours by foot through Munich quarters and says: "And with the Segway I can show the guests even more from Munich."
Philipp grew up in the Lower Bavarian city Kelheim, an old ancestral seat of the House of Wittelsbach which the Bavarian ruling dynasty abandoned for the benefit of Munich in the late Middle Ages. And thus also Philipp came to Munich for his studies of political science and literature and stayed. From his longtime experience as a walking tour guide Philipp knows: „1327, 1568 - specific dates are often nothing but smoke and mirrors. I’d rather convey impressions and stories which last. And with the Segway this can be done even better because one can get a more comprehensive sense for the very own vibes of Munich“.
