Berlin Highlights Bike Tour

Berlin Highlights Bike Tour

Come and see the best of Berlin in our amazing three-hour tour! Our Berlin Highlights Tour is perfect for those short on time who want to see the main sights of Germany’s capital. You’ll visit all of the ‘must-sees’ as well as some of the hidden things you might pass right by on your own.

This tour has something for everyone. If you’ve never been to Berlin before, this leisurely cycle is a great way to explore the city. And if you’re a Berlin veteran, you’ll be impressed at how much our experienced guides have to add.

The story of Berlin is complex, and this tour offers a great starting point to break down all of the information.

Beginning with the city’s humble origins as a fishing village on the river Spree, your guide will take you through Berlin's evolution.  We will go into detail about the city from its time as the capital of Prussia and its role in the creation of the German Empire to its place at the heart of the Cold War and the vibrant center of reunited Germany. 

We will show you the Reichstag and discuss the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. You’ll see Checkpoint Charlie and one of the only remaining sections of the Berlin Wall as we take you through the foundations of the Cold War.  Finally, we will stop at the iconic Brandenburg Gate and picturesque Museum Island before returning to our shop, located conveniently under the TV Tower, Berlin’s spire.

Along the way, you will have plenty of time to get to know your guide, your group, take pictures and ask questions about how best to take advantage of everything that Berlin has to offer. The half-day nature of the tour leaves you with plenty of time to explore on your own, and our guides are happy to point you to the best currywurst, museum, dance club, or German beer.

As with all of our other tours, our Berlin Highlights Bike Tour travels at an easy pace on our comfortable city-cruiser style bicycles. It’s comprehensive and fun, and our guides make sure you have a great time.

    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.

  • Expand/Collapse What do I need to bring with me on tour?

    Be sure to bring your camera and 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.

  • Expand/Collapse Do I need to reserve a bike separately?

    No - the bike is included with the bike tour, so just bring yourself and we will take care of the rest!

  • Expand/Collapse Do we stop for lunch?

    We will not stop for lunch on this tour, generally guests eat before or after the tour.

    If you are interested in a longer bike tour (6 hour duration) that includes a lunch break in a local beer garden, check out our Berlin City Bike Tour!

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for kids?

    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.  Being a slightly shorter tour, this is a great option for families!

  • Expand/Collapse What if I haven’t ridden a bike in a while?

    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.

  • Expand/Collapse What happens if it rains?

    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!

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

    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.  Our 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.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    We're happy to offer free changes and 100% refund up to 24 hours before tour* Failure to cancel a reservation at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure may result in forfeited travel funds. Fare difference may apply.
