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.

My friend and I took the bike tour with Tom, and had a wonderful couple of hours exploring the city. The tour was well paced, with plenty of stops around the well known sights, including the Brandenburg Tor, the Reichstag, and the Memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe. Tom was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and had plenty of interesting facts, and was also personable and friendly, trying to get to know each person of the tour which made it really special. We also stopped at a beer garden for lunch, where the food was delicious and the portions generous. I'd definitely take this tour again, although maybe in the summer months when it isn't quite as chilly!

This was fun. We saw a lot of Berlin and got some exercise. Not too physical, but we saw a lot. Berlin is very bike friendly for the most part. Good overview of the city in a short time. Really enjoyed the tour.

This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip! Our guide Tom was really knowledgeable, and incredibly witty. One of my favourite moments was when he explained the history of Berlin's divide in the form of a chalk drawing on the sidewalk of a pint of beer. Given that we only had a limited amount of time in Berlin, this was the perfect way for us to get a taste of everything that Berlin had to offer. I highly recommend this tour!
