What You Can Expect

Berlin Super Saver: City Bike Tour plus Potsdam Day Trip by Train with Bike Tour

Berlin City Bike Tour

Berlin City Bike Tour (Day 1, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday; 4.5 hours)
Get a brief introduction to Berlin from your guide before hopping on your bike – a beach cruiser that offers the height in comfort with cushy seats, wide tires and easy-to-use handlebars and brakes, along with multiple gears for a relaxing ride. Whether it’s your first trip to Berlin or you feel like a local, riding along the city’s less-traveled roads offers a unique view of Berlin’s past and present.

As you pass the city’s most famous landmarks, learn about all facets of its history, from the Prussians, the Weimar Republic, Hitler and the Third Reich, to the Cold War and the Berlin of today. Stop every few hundred yards to discuss the sights with your guide and enjoy photo opportunities.

With so much to see in this flat, bike-friendly city, your tour takes advantage of multiple bike paths as well as routes through beautiful parks. Along the way, visit a beer garden to experience authentic Berlin and keep your 4.5-hour bike ride from feeling the least bit strenuous!

Potsdam by Train with Bike Tour (Day 2, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday; 6.5 hours)
From Berlin, travel by train with your guide to Potsdam, with bikes in tow. When you arrive, embark on a leisurely ride through this picturesque town, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Delight in the gorgeous sights as you pedal around Potsdam, including a ride through the historical city center, admiring the quaint redbrick homes of the Dutch Quarter (Hollandisches Viertel). Your guide will point out Sanssouci Palace and the New Palace, originally the work of Fredrick the Great, as well as the Orangerie and historical windmill within the amazing Sanssouci Gardens.

See the fabulous Marble Palace before going into Cecilenhof Palace, where Truman, Stalin and Churchill concluded the Potsdam Agreement (entry included). Back aboard your bike, coast between the former West and East Berlin over the Glienicke Bridge, where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place. Along the way, your guide will recount anecdotes as you explore an array of historical sites.

Your bike tour will take about 4.5 hours, covering approximately 10 miles (16 km) – an ideal way to contrast the creative university town of today with its communist past behind the Iron Curtain. Take a break for lunch (own expense) at a great beer garden – site of the old royal dairy – before heading back to Berlin aboard the train.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

I found the Postdam portion extremely enjoyable. I found the tour guide extremely knowledgeable of the history in Postdam. The traffic was light and area covered during the tour was extensive and interesting. The Berlin portion of the Bike ride had too many people and I found it a slight annoyance.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Great deal to see highlights of Berlin and Potsdam! The bike tour company provide a fun way to see the city, and injects humor in telling the story behind the sites. Potsdam is beautiful and provides a nice contrast to the urban landscape in Berlin. A great value and highly recommended!
