Full description
Discover Berlin by bike on a private tour that explores the city’s experience during the Cold War. Ride along the former East and West border and see the remains of the Berlin Wall, one of the last watch towers, hidden military sites, and other traces left by the division of the city. Bike to Friedrichstraße station and Bornholmer Straße to see former border crossing locations. Follow the River Spree to the parliament and government district and arrive at Brandenburg Gate where the border ran and was the symbol of the division of the city. Ride past areas where the ‘death strips’ were located and see watchtowers left behind after the fall of the wall. Stop to look at remaining stretches of the wall and the famous Checkpoint Charlie. Get a fascinating insight into what it was like to live in the eastern block and hear about failed escape attempts. Learn about the changes that German society went through and how the WWII and the Cold War shaped modern-day Berlin.

      Great tour. I booked a private tour of 4. Our guide made sure we were safe and comfortable- since this was the rainiest day of our 10 day trip. Bjorn, our guide was shared his knowledge of Germany and Berlin and was helpful to put historian value into our tour. Despite the rain, we still covered a lot of ground and still had time to savor a drink on the way.

      Very informative tour!

      Our tourguide Johann is an exceptional storyteller. Many thanks and much respect for guiding a group of 16 drunk Dutchies around Berlin on a bike for 5 hours. 5/5 stars
