Discontinued: Modern Berlin Bike Tour

We're sorry, this activity is no longer available.

Contemporary Berlin has earned a reputation as a vibrant bastion of counter culture, progressive thought, and creative spirit.  It’s a city teeming with “stay-cationers”, street art, and non-conformists, while juggling gentrification, a real estate boom, and even a tech boom.

Some of the topics we cover include:

Colliding ambitions: For some, bare post-Cold War areas mean appealing public spaces, while for others this land represents unique investment opportunities.

Urban renewal: The former Tempelhof airport and reclaimed no-man’s-land are two impressive examples of Berlin’s continuous, almost organic, development that few other cities can rival.

"Multi-kulti": Multi-culturalism’s benefits come with integration struggles and stereotypes. On the tour we delve deep into Kreuzberg to focus on Germany’s historical guest worker programs and how this impacts Berlin’s current politics and social dynamics.

Creative spaces: See both famous squats as well as where this endangered lifestyle is being transformed. We’ll discuss how these concepts evolved, and what the future holds for them.

NOTE:  This tour does not return to the starting point at the end of the tour as most guests will want to continue to explore on their own.  A free bike rental is included with the tour so you can hold on to your bike until the end of the day!
