Overview

Make the most of a trip to Berlin with this 2-day Super Saver tour that features guided bike treks around both Berlin and Potsdam. Learn the history of Berlin, from its beginnings, to its role as capital of the Nazi Third Reich, to the divided city of the Cold War, to the modern-day capital of a unified Germany. Then take a train ride to Potsdam to discover its beautiful palaces, parks and gardens by bike. A train ticket plus the use of a bike and helmet is included.
  • Combine two popular bike tours at one discounted price with this Berlin Super Saver
  • Take a day trip to Potsdam by train and discover its beauty by bike
  • Learn about the history of these two cities from your local guide
  • Ride past famous landmarks like Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Wall
  • Admire Sanssouci Palace, the Dutch Quarter and other Potsdam attractions
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. 


On the second day of this Super Saver tour, enjoy a brief train ride to the scenic city of Potsdam (with cycles in tow) for another 4.5-hour bike ride. 


Pedal through the historical city center, the Russian colony Alexandrowka and the Dutch Quarter. Admire the majestic royal residences that were built during the reign of Frederick the Great. There’s Sansoucci Palace, one of the largest UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany; New Palace, the largest and most impressive palace ensemble in Sanssouci; the small, neo-classical Charlottenhof Palace, also in Sanssouci Park; and Orangery Palace, built in the style of the High Renaissance and commissioned by King Frederick William IV.


Explore a variety of historical sites and learn the deeper meaning behind each.


See, in part, the fabulous Marble Palace and visit the Cecilenhof Palace (entry and audio guide included), where Churchill, Truman and Stalin wrote world history when discussing how to partition Germany. Coast along between the former East and West Berlin, over the Glienicke Bridge connecting Potsdam to Berlin — where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place — and much more.


There will be time for lunch at a beer garden (own expense) that used to be the old royal dairy. 


The tour concludes with a return trip to Berlin.
