    What to Expect
    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.
