  • Berlin: Guided Bike Tour of the Berlin Wall and Third Reich

    4. Berlin: Guided Bike Tour of the Berlin Wall and Third Reich

    Immerse yourself in an exciting journey through time into Berlin's moving and not so distant past. The tour begins in the centrally-located Nikolaiviertel, just 5 minutes on foot from the TV Tower. Start your tour where Berlin's history first began. Jump on the bike of your choice and for 15 kilometers, listen to fascinating facts and lesser-known stories about historical sites from the Nazi era and the Cold War. Knowledgeable and entertaining guides will lead you to remote corners, predominantly down side streets and bike paths, and give you the inside story. See what life was like in the once divided city and find out why it is no longer possible to access Hitler's bunker ("Führerbunker"). Follow the outline of where the wall once stood, and see former ghost stations, old bunkers, and huge buildings with eventful histories.

    We participated in a biking WWII tour around Berlin, that I highly recommend. Content was great, it was well prepared and our guide was knowledgeable. There is so much to see that unfortunately you can't spend too much time at each stop but this way we cover a lot of venues.

    We got lucky with our Tour and Tour Guide Carlos. We were able to take our time and he pointed out so many things that we had seen before but didn't know the history behind it. 3 Hours may not sound like a lot but you are definitely beat afterwards.

Me and my boyfriend loved this activity. Jake, our guide, was very nice and made a tour about heavy topics, fun. We learned so much and we saw the less touristic parts of Berlin. We were only a small group with four so we had all the time and it was easy to stay together. Highly recommend this!

Very nice and relaxed trip, well-kept boat, good service, accommodating staff, everything was perfect!

The boat was very clean and everything was easy to understand. Staff was very friendly too
