Full description
After being greeted at the starting location, head to Potsdammerplatz where the border between East and West Berlin existed. Learn about its fascinating history and its transformation since the fall of the Wall into the bustling hub it is today. Next, enter the former German Democratic Republic and visit The Reichstag, home of the current German Parliament, and learn about its important role in past and present Berlin. See watchtowers left behind after the fall of the Wall and visit Bosebrücke, the location where the Wall finally fell in 1989. Bike through Mauerpark, a former deadly border strip of the Berlin Wall, where you can now visit flea markets, take a drink on the grass or even participate in some open-air karaoke. Next, make your way to Bernauerstr Memorial, where you can see the remaining pieces of the Wall, before heading to Museum Island and learning more about the GDR government. Finally, visit Checkpoint Charlie and discover the history of espionage in Berlin, before heading back to the start location.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Informal yet informed.

Johan was our guide, and, boy, did he guide us on a glorious sunny day in Berlin for 4.5 glorious hours. Good to meet Murphy (Johan's dog) too. She was a star. Not only did were do Cold War sites and tales but were managed to fit in some Nazi/Hitler history too. Fantastic! Highly recommended. And a great way to see bits of Berlin you never otherwise would.

Nice bike ride on colored Amsterdam bikes along the line of the wall with a Dutch guide who knew the history well. This history was told from stories about how things went at important moments, from famous people who have meant something in the history of Berlin, but also from the people who experienced it as a resident of Berlin and therefore became history. Nice how well-known musicians who have been to Berlin and the link to songs. In addition, you will hear facts that you would otherwise not have found out. Definitely recommended, Berlin is going to live through the story!

great way to see central Berlin and get some insights into its history. Easy riding - flat, mostly paths, and comfortable and stable bikes. My wife is not a regular bike rider and she loved it. Our guide Johanne was fantastic, very informative and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.
