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.

Our guide Simon was great. He was very knowledgeable about all the sights we visited. He made sure everyone on the tour was comfortable riding the bikes in the traffic. And having lunch and a beer in the beer garden was a great way to get know the people in our group

This really was an awesome tour. We were a little worried as to how tired we would be - as we were only flying in the same morning from New York - but it was worth every ounce of energy! Our two guides, Lucy and Claudia were both great, fun, energetic, and informative. You saw everything possible and received as much info on the sites as you cycled around, stopping for an hours rest in a Beer Garden with food very reasonably priced and a great atmosphere. It was especially nice to see some of the sights at sunset, or even at night time, beautifully lit. Would 100 recommend to anyone wanting to get an overview of Berlin. I'll certainly be back for more!

Great way to get a first look at Berlin. If you're not familiar with the city and want a great introduction and hints on where you might want to go back to then this is it. Kevin, our guide at Fat Tire Bike Tours, was interesting, friendly and very helpful. Easy bike riding - generally flat terrain and only short sections between stops, Lots of stops and chances to take photos. Lunch venue in the Tiergarten was perfect and a good chance to mix with others on the tour.

A month before we came, I booked a half day bicycle tour of the main historical sights of central Berlin with a company called Fat Tire Bike Tours. I booked following the recommendations on Trip Advisor and am so pleased I did. It was excellent value for money and very interesting and our guide, Alex, a Canadian ex-pat, proved to be knowledgeable, funny and patient. His interpersonal skills and memory are impressive, ensuring that he learns peoples names and has a conversation with each person or group individually during the course of the tour to get to know a little about them.

We started in Alexanderplatz and made our way to the Book Burning Memorial, Humboldt University, Gendarmenmarkt, Checkpoint Charlie, the last largest remaining segment of the Wall, a former wall watch tower, the site of Hitlers Bunker, the Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial Memorial to the Murdered European Jews, Victory Column, Tiergarten, a beer garden for lunch Schleusenkrug, back to the Reichstag and finally, Museum Island. Each of these places enjoyed a stop, a brief history lesson from Alex and photo opportunities though he pointed out many other sights along the way.

What a wonderful way to see Berlin on a sunny day mixing with other travellers, some gentle exercise and discovering some of Berlins history. We were so impressed with it, that we signed up for a bicycle tour of Potsdam two days later.

Awesome tour with Tom. Berlin is mercifully flat so it is not arduous at all. I learned a TON of history on this tour.
