Know More about this tour

Half-day Berlin bike tour starts at the historic place, Bornholmer Street, where East and West-Berliners hugged on the day the Berlin Wall collapsed. We cycle on bike paths and less traveled secondary roads to the Brandenburg gate and back.

This tour will lead you to the historic and eventful places of old and new Berlin. First stop is the Oranienburger Street, the new Berlin party mile. Passing the former 'Kaiserliches Postfuhramt' (Headquarters of the Prussian Post) along the 'New Synagoge', nearly destroyed during the early Nazi times. Next stop is the 'Friedrichstadt Palast', with the worlds biggest show stage and its exciting mix of traditional and modern variety shows for young and old.

Across the 'Hauptbahnhof' (Central train station) is Germany's biggest hospital , which was built as an army hospital and dealt with the plague in the late 17th century. Not far away, we find the Reichstag and the government buildings with the German Chancellery. Finally, we see the status symbol of Berlin, the Brandenburg gate.

On your way back we will pass many historic and modern places and buildings such as The Holocaust memorial, Potsdam Place, Gendarmen Market, one of the most beautiful places in Europe and the Bebel Place, where in 1933 the infamous Nazi book burning took place. Cycling through the original center of the city, the Nikolai quarters, we pass the Red City Hall, the Neptune Fountain, the 368 m high TV - Tower and the Marien Church as well as the Alexander Place. Your last stop is the World Time Clock 'the Berlin meeting point'. From here we bike through the districts of Mitte and Prenzlauer berg back to your starting point.

    Die 4-stündige Fahrradtour hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Netter Guide, sehr informativ und interessant. Eine schöne kleine Gruppe.

    Good knowledgeable guide who spoke good English. The tour lasted longer than agreed and is not suitable for children under 12-13 years old.

    BERLIN auf dem Fahrrad zu Entdecken ist grossartig, Die Führung war interessant und abwechslungsreich, der Guide ( Katrin) war super nett und ist auf unsere Fragen während der Tour eingegangen und hat außerdem die Tour bereichert durch ihre persönlichen Erfahrungen aus der ehemaligen DDR. Absolut zu empfehlen! Julia + Andreas

    Wir hatten mit Katrin eine waschechte Berlinerin als guide. Hatten durch die Räder eine viel größere Reichweite und fast alles, was "man gesehen haben muss", gesehen, gespickt mit persönlichen Erfahrungen. Gute parkmöglichkeiten. Aus vorgesehenen 3,5 Std Führung wurden 4,5 Std, was das herzblut zeigt, mit dem Katrin ihren Job macht. Auch bei strömenden Regen wird gefahren, Regen ponchos wurden auf Wunsch ausgeteilt. Preis leistungs Verhältnis super, Räder gut in Schuss. Absolut empfehlenswert, um einen ersten Eindruck von Berlin zu bekommen, ohne einen der hop on hop off - Busse zu nehmen!

    Very nice tour with a very knowledgeable guide who lives in the city and is familiar with its history.

    We all thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour of Berlin with Marcus our guide. It gave us so much information about the history and covered all the main sights as well as showing us a side of Berlin we would not have seen as we cycled through many different very interesting and pretty areas. All done on the wonderful traditional ‘City bikes’.

    The booking was cancelled at short notice and we were not informed by the company or Trip Advisor. We had travelled across the city for a much-anticipated tour of the city by bike

    Small group and very informative about life and living in East Berlin before and after the wall came down. Also a great way to understand the layout of the city. Our guide Katrine was brilliant and fun.

    Our bike tour of central Berlin with Fat Tires was superb. Jim was our guide and he is fantastic at his job. Being a former school teacher and also a historian makes him ideally suited to the role. It takes two qualities to reach Jim’s standard and they are knowledge and delivery. He knows his subject in fascinating detail and his delivery is very clear and engaging. All good presenters understand the importance of interacting with their audience and he does that perfectly. Plus his complete enthusiasm for his subject was keenly shared by his audience. Jim could well consider making and selling a series of documentary DVDs on all aspects of Berlin’s history. All he needs is a friend to point the camera at him and he will perform. And after Berlin? That’s up to you, Jim.
