Festival of Lights Tour

Each year Berlin lights up with a fantastic display of architectural illuminations that are amazing to see.  Running from the 6th through the 15th of October, major Berlin landmarks as well as several business locations will be showcasing creative and colorful external illuminations for all to enjoy.

And what better way to enjoy the Festival of Lights than on a bike!  Let us guide you to some of our favorite illuminations while we navigate the festival and explore Berlin at night.  This festival is one of our favorites, so we are excited to offer this great Berlin activity!

To make the most of the special illuminations during the festival, this tour will be a shortened version of our Day City Tour, so you will not only see the lights, but some of Berlin's top landmarks, too.  The tours will kick off at 7:30pm from our Alexanderplatz location and will last about 2.5 hours.  While we will not be making a dinner stop you will have the chance to take a short snack break during the tour.
