Berlin Bike Tour

Berlin Bike Tour

Meet and greet the tour guide and group near the entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, a large public square and transport hub in the center of Berlin. After getting fitted for a Beach Cruiser bike and helmet, there will be a brief introduction to Berlin before beginning the approximately 4.5-hour ride around and through this capital city and cultural center of Germany.

Because there is so much to see in Berlin, this tour takes advantage of the many bike paths the city offers. More than 95 percent of the tour takes place on bike paths and through parks. Also, Berlin is quite flat and easy to traverse by bicycle. With frequent stops to learn about the sites and to take pictures, it all makes for a most enjoyable way to explore this fascinating place.

See the Berlin Wall Memorial and one of the last remaining sections of the wall itself. Stand above Adolf Hitler's bunker and recount the final days of the Third Reich. Check out Checkpoint Charlie, the best-known crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War.

Pedal to the famous Brandenburg Gate, one of Berlin’s most important monuments. It was a symbol of division between Berlin and Germany during the Cold War, but it is now a national symbol of peace and unity. And visit the Reichstag Building, the meeting place of the German Parliament.

Also, ride along the Spree, a river that runs through the city, and Tiergarten Park, Berlin’s largest and most popular inner-city park. Then stop at a beer garden for lunch (own expense) to experience Berlin as the locals do.

Other stops on the tour include Museum Island, with its collection of five world-renowned museums; Potsdamer Platz, a public square and traffic intersection in the center of Berlin; Gendarmenmarkt’s German and French cathedrals and much more. 

Throughout the tour, the guide will provide ample information about Berlin’s past and present — and maybe even offer some insight into where the city is headed in the future. It’s a great introduction to the city of Berlin and all that it offers its visitors and residents alike.

The tour ends back at Alexanderplatz.

This tour was amazing. Of course Berlin has a lot of wow sights, but what makes a great tour is a great guide who knows his stuff and how to tell a great story, all with a bit of humour thrown in. Tops marks for our guide Ciaran. Go the Irish

Such a great experience! I have never been to Berlin before and this was a great orientation to the city. I came in having done some research but feeling a bit lost afterwards I felt I had a better orientation to the city and then had a specific list of places I wanted to explore further. Also, my highly unscientific poll showed that Hanna is pretty much the best tour guide in Berlin, possibly the entire world. : Really, she's great- very personable, answered all history, cultural, and random questions thrown at her regarding Berlin. Plus, her love for the city shined through. A great experience overall!
