Full description
Take a bicycle tour through the wild, alternative Berlin and discover what Klaus Wowereit meant when he said, "Berlin is poor, but sexy!"

The tour begins in the central Nikolaiviertel, just five minutes from the TV Tower by foot. Start the tour where Berlin's history began, then ride far from the center to experience the city life in Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain, Neukölln, and Treptow.

Immerse yourself in the different districts of Berlin and learn how they've changed. On this 17-kilometer ride, take a look at alternative projects and restored buildings as you ride along side streets and bike paths.

The tour takes you through diverse areas and lets you see exceptional buildings and innovative ideas. Enjoy a beautiful ride along the Spree and the Landwehr Canal, where the contrasts of Berlin could not be clearer. Stop every 5 to 10 minutes to learn interesting and historical facts. A small group of up to 15 people, an intimate atmosphere, and a relaxed pace make this an unforgettable experience.

Fascinating tour of a Berlin you might not otherwise get to see

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Berlin. Our guide Stefanie was superb; friendly, funny, engaging, really knowledgable and exuded enthusiasm. The bikes were really comfortable and the areas chosen were fascinating. The whole thing gave us a perspective on this complex city we wouldn't otherwise have got. Really good value too. Thanks Stefanie!

Really really enjoyed my tour.

This tour was fantastic and we were lucky enough to go on tour with the owner. It was very informative, surprising and we went at an easy pace around city. There was 7 of us, and we all felt comfortable and reassured on the road because the bike tour for most of the time went through the back streets of Berlin, opening us up to a new world and I lived in Berlin for two years. I certainly recommend this to anyone looking to learn and discover more about this city with so much history hidden in plain sight.

Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe mit 7 Personen. Das war sehr überschaubar und persönlich. Die Räder waren gut in Schuss und die Organisation einwandfrei. Die Haltepunkte zeigten eindrucksvoll die „anderen Ecken“ von Berlin. Unser Guide war sehr nett, eloquent aber auch sehr von sich überzeugt. Es sollte daher für die Teilnehmer die Geschichten und die eigenen Eindrücke der Teilnehmer im Vordergrund stehen. Jeder sollte sich ein eigenes Bild machen können und nicht vom persönlichen Bild des Guide geprägt werden. Daher keine volle Punktzahl.
