Berlin Bike Tour: Berlin Wall and Cold War

Berlin Bike Tour: Berlin Wall and Cold War

Step back in time as you explore the most famous moments in Cold War-era Berlin during this 4.5-hour guided bike ride. Berlin experts and novices alike are sure to learn something new about this fascinating city, all the while enjoying a relaxing ride through this bike-friendly town.

Begin your day in the morning, meeting your guide at a pre-arranged location near Alexanderplatz. Before you get started, listen to an orientation from your guide on the Berlin Wall and your planned route. Over the course of your ride you’ll cycle about 6 miles (10 kilometers), listening to stories about how Berlin was originally split apart after World War II, along with tales of the Berlin Airlift, behind-the-scenes espionage by the Allies and the East German secret police (Stasi), the end of communism and how the city exists today.

Start cycling down the main thoroughfare of East Berlin, heading to the longest-remaining section of the Berlin Wall that still stands today. This particular strip covers more than 3,300 feet (1 kilometer) of graffiti-strewn concrete. Pedal along 3 miles (5 kilometers) of land where the wall once existed, learning about some the key differences in daily life for residents on both sides of this Cold War barrier.

Next stop by the Soviet Memorial found at Treptower Park, the final resting place for more than 5,000 soldiers who fought in the Battle of Berlin, hearing about the Stalinist propaganda found on the stone artwork which flanks the site.

Take a break for lunch about halfway through your ride (at your own expense) before continuing your ride to discover more incredible escape attempts (some that worked, others that failed), the deathstrip watchtowers, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and many more sites. Finish back at your original departure point in the afternoon.

Highlight of our trip in Berlin! A great way to get around and see everything if you are short on time. We stopped at a and #34;beer garden and #34; for lunch. Food was okay. You feel obligated to eat at this place as there is no other place nearby. Overall experience was great.

This bike tour was amazing: our guide was terrific and it all was so fun and informative. It rained a bit but that did not matter. We would highly recommend it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

I am so glad I went on this tour. Marc with a C! was a great guide and clearly knew what he was talking about, plus was a lot of fun. Covering Berlin by bike, specifically the Cold War sites, worked out really well. I'm sure we saw a lot more than if I had only taken the walking tour. I also believe that since this tour was specific to the Cold War, there were more people who were really interested in the subject matter than if it was just a general city tour. I LOVED it and would recommend a bike tour in Berlin to anyone who can ride one.

Excellent day tour - very informative and took us to places we would not have otherwise discovered - e.g. guard tower in the Death Strip. Child friendly with child bikes, though need to be proficient to cycel in wide cyle lanes on main roads. Great fun, and saw so much more than walking/train.

Andrew was an outstanding guide. He kept the tour group together well, was very well-versed on the subject and explained everything in outstanding detail. The restaurant he picked for lunch was also outstanding. The pace of the bike tour was good. I didn't know how much fun a bike tour could be. This beat a walking tour any day, even as cold as it was.
