Full description
After being greeted at the starting location, start your tour at Potsdammerplatz where the border between East and West Berlin existed. Learn about its fascinating history and its transformation since the fall of the Wall into the bustling hub it is today.

Next, enter the former German Democratic Republic and visit The Reichstag, home of the current German Parliament, and learn about its important role in past and present Berlin. See watchtowers left behind after the fall of the Wall and visit Bosebrücke, the location where the Wall finally fell in 1989.

Bike through Mauerpark, a former deadly border strip of the Berlin Wall, where you can now visit flea markets, take a drink on the grass or even participate in some open-air karaoke. Next, make your way to Bernauerstr Memorial, where you can see the remaining pieces of the Wall, before heading to Museum Island and learning more about the GDR government.

Finally, visit Checkpoint Charlie and discover the history of espionage in Berlin, before heading back to the start location.
