Berlin Shore Excursion: VIP Bike Rental

If you want to explore Berlin on your own during your cruise stopover this is the option for you!  With our VIP Bike Rental you get round-trip transport from the port to Berlin, meet and greet when your bus arrives by our friendly English-speaking staff, and a great City Cruiser style bike to explore Berlin like a local.  You will have the perfect opportunity to see it all as your day starts in the West and you will return your bike to our shop in the former East.  Don’t worry about getting lost, our shop and return location for your bikes is at the base of the giant TV Tower (Fernsehturm), the tallest structure in the city!  From there, we will escort you back to the bus to return to your ship.

Want to explore Berlin in a guided tour? We offer two options for tours for those visiting during shore excursions.  Our VIP Private Bike Tour is for those who want a private tour with everything included, and our Small Group Bike Adventure is for those who want to be part of a small group and escorted by one of our expert guides.

  • Expand/Collapse Do we need to bring cash on this shore excursion?

    You should have some cash (Euros) with you. Since you will be exploring Berlin on your own with your bike you may need some cash to pay for food or souvenirs as some places don’t accept credit cards.

  • Expand/Collapse Is the bike ride difficult?

    Not at all. Berlin is nearly completely flat and is totally bike friendly.

  • Expand/Collapse What about Berlin souvenirs?

    There are lots of good options: pieces of the Berlin Wall, anything “Ampelmann,” toy Trabi’s to name a few. All are available in or near our shop where your shore excursion concludes before going back to your ship.

  • Expand/Collapse How should I dress for biking?

    Comfort is the name of the game, and layers! Berlin’s summer weather is usually great but can change quite a bit over the course of a few hours. Bring layers that you can swap should you find it to be warm or chilly. The bikes have a luggage rack on them, so it’s easy to strap extra layers there so you are comfortable while you bike.

  • Expand/Collapse What about families with kids?

    Everyone is welcome! We have bikes of all sizes, including tag-a-long bikes for kids a bit too young to ride on their own. When you make your booking please let us know in the “comments box” if you have kids in your booking and we will take care of the rest!

  • Expand/Collapse Will we be with other travellers on this shore excursion?

    You will share transport on the bus between the ship and Berlin. Once in Berlin, you will be free to ride around Berlin and return your bike to our shop at the giant TV Tower where we will take you back to the bus to return to the ship.
