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.

This was a truly outstanding tour. We arrived for our tour quite early and they accommodated us by moving us into a tour that left half an hour earlier. The guide was named Randall and was very funny, very knowledgeable, and seemed to truly enjoy what he was doing. He made sure everyone was safe and ready before we started the ride. The other folks working at the shop seemed to be very devoted to what they were doing and worked very hard to make sure everyone was comfortable with their bikes and fitted them nicely for everyone who needed help. They did a nice job of fitting helmets for anyone who wanted to wear one. The equipment was all very good and well maintained. They had sunscreen available for anyone who did not bring it which was a nice touch.

The ride itself lasted longer than the advertised time. Randall was very diligent about answering everyones questions and put a great deal of effort into the narration. The tour hit all the major sites advertised and was a very nice way of seeing them up close. The riding portion was quite easy. No one segment lasted very long and the longest segment was through the Tiergarten on quite flat terrain. People who do not ride on a daily basis will have no problem keeping up. Berlin is a very flat city. The lunch stop was nice and they did a good job of accommodating anyone who did not speak German.

There are several different tours available from this company. I would have done more of them if I had more days available in Berlin.
