Discover Berlin’s fascinating history with the help of cutting edge VR technology. First, join us for our most popular tour, our Day City Tour, as we bike to Berlin’s must-see sites, such as the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the Museum Island, and much more. It’s a relaxing ride with lots of time to take pictures and speak with your guide, and you will be amazed that we get to more than 16 amazing sites!
Next, join one of our Fat Tire Approved activities for a unique perspective on one of the most captivating eras of Berlin’s turbulent past- the Berlin Wall. Using cutting edge technology developed by teams here in Berlin, you will dive into the past in an immersive virtual reality experience right at the Berlin Wall Memorial at the famous Bernauer Strasse. Not only is this a unique Berlin experience, but one that will leave you with a profound and emotional understanding of life in the shadow of the Wall. End the evening with a craft beer from one of our favorite breweries - included!
Fat Tire Approved: As part of our commitment to bringing you the best travel options to supplement our tours, this fantastic experience is operated by a trusted local partner.

Both tours start from our easy-to-find meeting point in Alexanderplatz
Sure, and most people doing more than one tour do. The bike is of course included during the tour, and if you want to keep it afterwards or between tours you will get a great discounted rate - just let us know that you want to hold on to your bike and we will set you up.
Absolutely not! These tours cover completely different topics and go in very different directions - you will have a blast on both tours!
We recommend reservations for all of our tours, especially our topic tours which do tend to fill up. Reservations can be made in moments online, or we will be happy to help you on the phone, too. Package Deals can only be booked directly with us either online or through our office.
All bike tours meet at the main entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz. You will see our guides there along with our large, red flag. If you would like to drop by our shop before the tour, you can find us around the right-hand corner from the entrance to the TV Tower.
Reservations are recommended, but not required. We suggest that you book in advance so that you are guaranteed a spot on the tour, and also to help us better plan for the day of your tour. If you do not have a reservation don’t worry, just come on by our shop and we will get you on tour, provided that there is space.
Be sure to bring your camera and some cash for the lunch break. We also recommend that you bring an extra layer of clothing in case it gets chilly during the tour. There are luggage racks on our bikes so you can easily carry some small items with you.
No - the bike is included with the bike tour, so just bring yourself and we will take care of the rest!
Yes, we will make a stop for lunch during the tour. Please remember that the cost of food is not included in the tour price, so make sure to have some cash with you.
Our tours are great options for families and kids are very welcome. We have several types of kids’ bikes, seats, and helmets to make sure everyone of all sizes is comfortable on tour.
Don’t worry, it’s just like riding a bike! Our tours move at a very comfortable pace so don’t worry if you are a bit rusty. If you are worried about being comfortable on the bike, feel free to stop by the shop a bit early and you can take a few practice laps.
The tour will still run in case of rain. We try our best to take cover but sometimes we are exposed to the elements. We have pocket-sized rain ponchos for sale in our shop and we highly recommend that you purchase one before tour. If you don’t use it, we will buy it back from you- it’s a bit of a rain insurance policy!
We cannot enter the monuments because German Law restricts museum guides to their authorized officials. Plus, some people would want to spend only ten minutes in the museum while others would prefer 3 hours.
TIP: Should you want to keep your bike longer, and many people do, you get a discount on rental following a tour. Your guide, and our shop staff, will be happy to show you exactly how to go back to any sites you would like to explore further or visit the interior.
We highly recommend reservations as space is extremely limited. We are happy to take last-minute and walk-up bookings if space is available.
It’s easy. The tour starts directly at the Fat Tire Tours bike shop in Alexanderplatz. You will just need to sign the disclaimer for the bike and leave some kind of ID, such as a driver’s license or credit card number. The bike is then yours to use not just until the end of the tour, but until the Fat Tire shop closes that night!
We’ve been committed to conducting outstanding Berlin tours with top reviews since 2004. In that time we think we have created some of the best bike and Segway tours in town. As we are always looking for opportunities to deliver the best experiences in Berlin to our guests, we have partnered with some very carefully chosen local partners to offer some of the experiences we do not run on our own.
While “Fat Tire Approved” tours are not operated by Fat Tire Tours, we have carefully selected the tours that meet our high standards, and made sure to partner with other great local operators to make sure you receive the same high Fat Tire quality you expect, every time.
Yes, or no. The best option is to book this experience on the same day as your bike tour as we depart right from the bike shop when you return from tour. Please be aware that our bike tours do return at slightly different times, so you may have a bit of time between returning from tour and starting the VR experience. It’s a great time to enjoy a post-tour drink at the shop and talk with your guides!
We will bike from our Fat Tire Tours shop to the memorial as the ride is not difficult and it’s a great way to see a different side of town, but we will not be biking during the tour. Most of the experience is at the memorial so you won’t need to cycle during the tour.
Yes! In fact, it is really common for guests to keep their bikes after tours so they can continue exploring, or to just be cool and get around like a local. Once you have checked out your bike you can return it whenever you want. When you book this tour the bike is included until Fat Tire Tours closes for the day. If you keep the bike longer it’s fine - you will just pay the extra rental time whenever you return the bike. It’s that easy!
We offer full refunds for cancellations made at least 72 hours in advance of your tour. Just contact us to either cancel or reschedule your booking. We are not able to offer refunds made fewer than 72 hours before your tour.
The meeting point for the tour is at Cafe 9 at the front of Markthalle 9 at the address Eisenbahnstrasse 43, 10997 Berlin. We recommend that you take the train to Görlitzer Park - it’s an easy walk from there. The guide will meet you just inside the cafe on the left-hand right in front of the giant roaster.
