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.

Excellent tour. We did this the first day we were in Berlin and it was a great way to get oriented with the city. Jurgen sp? was a fantastic guide and really entertaining. He also gave us some fantastic tips on places to go out in the city afterward. We stopped at the Schleuse Krug beer garden which was a great break in the biking. Highly recommended!

We only had a day to see what we could in Berlin and taking a Fat Tire bike tour was exactly what we'd hoped for. Our guide, Brett, did a great job of educating us on the history of Berlin as we made a nice large loop through the city stopping at points of interest along the way. The tour takes a leisurely 5 hours and included a 1 hour lunch stop at a picturesque beer garden. Highly recommend this tour.

This was a very good experience! To anyone who visits Berlin please take this bike tour! You will see a lot and learn a lot about the history and the modern day living of Berlin! The guide we had I think his name was Kean, not sure of the spelling, was very informative and a great guide! The lunch was tasty, but make sure you have cash for the lunch stop!

AMAZING! Marc was our guide. He is so incredibly personable and knowledgable. By far., this was the best bike tour I've been on. The bikes are comfortable and I learned a great deal. The restaurant stop was an added bonus with amazing food. When booking this tour, ask for Marc.

The tour was very good. Our friendly American but German-speaking guide was very knowledgeable about the city and its history. The tour is an excellent way to find one's bearing in Berlin and we would recommend doing it soon after arrival.
