What people are saying about Museum at the Kulturbrauerei

Amazing experience. Highly recommended.

Our Berlin Wall & Cold War Bike Tour was informative and powerful. Biking in Berlin is a wonderful way to experience the city. Our guide, Crawford, mixed history with great stories to bring our experience to life.

Great experience. Thanks to the wonderful tour guide I learned a lot of things I had no idea about, saw places which I would not normally pick or know of. It was also lots of fun riding a bike all over Berlin.

Excellent tour

Paul T was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and approachable. A brilliant and informative morning spent cycling and taking in the sights. A nice bonus visit at the end!

Paul, the Guide was fantastic with very knowledge of the main facts of the wall and the bike ride was very enjoyable. We had a great time and fun.

Great ride. Easy and interesting. Great way to experience the Wall and see unique parts of Berlin
