Full description
Follow the traces of the GDR in Berlin far away from the trendy neighborhoods of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, and discover what is left of the socialist model city.

Ride along the GDR boulevard Karl-Marx-Allee, past industrial wastelands and prefabricated buildings. Even though the Hohenschönhausen Stasi prison and the Stasi headquarters have long been disused, the buildings are still reminiscent of the old police state, in which one could be imprisoned for harmless transgressions. Along the route you’ll also see the training ground for successful GDR athletes as well as a large socialist monument. The tour guide will provide insight into life in the GDR through personal stories and experiences from former East Berlin.

You’ll cover approximately 23 kilometers on this 6-hour bike tour. Fittingly for the tour, you’ll also enjoy a lunch break in the GDR atmosphere. You’ll ride at a comfortable pace and have plenty of time to take photos and ask questions.
