What You Can Expect

Berlin Bike Tour: Third Reich and Nazi Germany

Berlin Third Reich and Nazi Germany Bike Tour

To answer these and other difficult questions, this subject-specific tour visits the Jewish ghetto, Nazi bunkers, an air raid shelters, anti-aircraft installations, still-destroyed buildings, resistance movement monuments, World War II battlefields, and much more.

Highlights of this tour include:

  • Seeing Jewish businesses destroyed during the infamous Nazi Night of Broken Glass, as well as the monumental New Synagogue that survived that night, at least.
  • Exploring the destroyed remnants of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Berlin's old main train station, both heavily bombed during air raids, that still stand as a grim reminder to the damages of war.
  • Visiting one of the few remaining functional air raid shelters, which was topped with anti-aircraft guns, and was filled way beyond occupancy during the Allied Battle of Berlin.
  • Understanding Hitler's immense plan for Berlin, once it would become the Reich capital of Germania, by seeing what remains of Hitler's old government installations.
  • Honoring the resistance movements against the Third Reich, particularly the assassination attempts on Hitler, at the Memorial of the July 20th, 1944


Because there is so much to see in Berlin and this city is so bike friendly, simply the best way to see this city is by bike. The tour takes advantage of the many bike paths the city offers - more than 95% of the tour is on bike paths and through parks. When you do ride on the streets, ride along the less-traveled roads. All insurance is included.

Ultra-hard seats? Razor-thin tires? Not on this tour! With new curvy beach cruisers these bikes are the pinnacles of city-biking comfort. With cushy seats, fat tires and handlebars that come up to meet you, it just doesn't get more relaxed. Of course these bikes perform as well. There are vice-like brakes to make sure you stop quickly. And with multiple gears, you can choose your level of pedal-pushing effort (all bikes also come with fun bells and unique names making these quite possibly the coolest bikes on the planet).

Ride rain or shine. The weather in Berlin can vary quickly, so you may want to bring a light jumper or rain jacket. The bikes come equipped with bike racks if you don't need to wear it. Also, a limited number of gloves and rain jackets are available, but again, it's better to be on the safe side and plan ahead.

Regardless if this is your first trip to Berlin of if you already feel like "ein Berliner", this is a great way to see the city and understand what makes Berlin so special. Here are just some of the many reasons why:

  • Berlin is a very flat, bike-friendly city and our tours take advantage of this by riding almost exclusively on bike paths and less-traveled roads.
  • You'll stop every few hundred meters to discuss the sights, so tours aren't the least bit strenuous.

The local Biking company was fantastic. We had a great guide who taught us more about the history of the Nazi's in Berlin then one really wants to know. Enjoyed a fantastic lunch in a local beer garden and was riveted by the history of the city! Do not pass this up!

Absolutely brilliant ! Tim was our guide and he was so knowledgeable. He emphasized to our group to engage in conversation and add facts that he might not know which was very few. Excellent lunch. Could not have asked for more from a tour. Ist class all the way. We did have a joke at his expense though when he pronounced EMU ! He knows what I mean.

Tim our guide was brilliant. He got the balance just right and helped us to understand the history of the tour. Bikes was comfortable and easy to handle. The route we followed mainly avoided the traffic and took us through parks and along cycle lanes. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Berlin.
