Full description

Discover the German capital by bike on this fantastic 3.5-hour tour.

Ride along the former border between East and West Berlin, and see the remains of the Berlin Wall, former border crossings, one of the last watch towers, and other traces left by the division of the city. The tour starts at the Kulturbrauerei, a remarkable old brewery site in the district of Prenzlauer Berg. Along the way, discover interesting facts about why the city became divided and how this affected its residents.

Hear about successful and fatal escape attempts, how the Berlin Wall came down overnight after almost 30 years, and how the city has changed since.

Excellent tour, very friendly guide and very easy to make the reservation and the bikes. Very easy for everyone and it is a dream to walk around the sides full of history. Berlin is an unmissable place to visit by bicycle, with children and everything... we had a lot of rain at the end and it was even more entertaining!!!!

The travel guide reported authentically and described details that suggest good research, were very interesting and cannot be found in any travel guide. We had the best cycling weather and rode in a manageable small group. Furthermore, attention was paid to individual needs. All in all a beautiful live experience steeped in history.

It was a great ride! We did the Wall exploration trip with the guide Titus, which was entertaining, exciting and entertaining. We visited places with Titus that we, as non-local Rhinelanders, would never have found on our own. Furthermore, Titus' stories as an old Berliner were enriched with personal stories. Conclusion: A cool tour that we recommend!!
