  • Alternative Berlin by Bike: Kreuzberg & Friedrichshain

    1. Alternative Berlin by Bike: Kreuzberg & Friedrichshain

    A guided bicycle tour is the best way to discover Berlin. Cycling is not only an easy way to get around the city but also brings you close to the action! Even visitors who already know Berlin well are amazed at the new perspectives they see on this tour. This tour usually runs on bike paths and safe, quiet roads. Start at the Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer Berg and cycle toward Volkspark Friedrichshain and Karl-Marx-Allee. In Friedrichshain, bike around Boxhagener Platz and the RAW Tempel. This area is home of great nightlife, but there's still plenty to see during the day! Continue along the East Side Gallery and over the Oberbaumbrücke to Kreuzberg. Discover back courtyards, explore beautiful parks, and ride along the banks of the River Spree. See Görlitzer Park, and experience the alternative way of life in the colorful SO36 district of Kreuzberg. You’ll not only learn many interesti...

    The ride gave us a different view of Berlin. We got to ride through streets with beautiful street art, the anti social areas and the offbeat places of Berlin. The guide was very informative and briefed us about the history of each place.

    We booked the tour in the morning with GYG and as we arrived we were the only participants of the tour. Our guide was an egyptian student, so the tour was in english (not german as booked). But that was no problem. It was absolutely amazing to hear german history in English from an egytian. We saw a lot of landmarks, heard a lot of intersting historical stuff an enjoyed the tour with perfect weather conditions. As my wife forgot her mobile at the restrooms at a landmark, he drove back with us for more than 2 km to get it back. That was very kind of him. So - amazing tour, well done. Thanks a lot.

  • Berlin Combo Package: City Tour & Spree Boat Tour

    The bust tour was fine but you need more that 2 days if you want to spend a reasonable time at the sites because the bus only runs between 1000 and 1800. The music on the bus commentary translators is dire and needs to be changed. The Reichstag tour is a must and was the highlight of the visit to Berlin. We also enjoyed the Brandenburg Gate, Cathedral and Checkpoint Charlie. The city is huge and you need the public transport. We used trams and underground and all were easy to use. Plenty of places to eat and a large variety of international foods. We stayed at Hotel Abba Berlin which was reasonably central and was clean and comfortable. There is more to see in Berlin than is apparent from travel brochures.

Our timing was superb. Lovely weather to explore the city by bike. The differences between the neighborhoods are really nice to get to grips with during our first visit to Berlin.
