Riding along the Berlin Wall on a guided bike tour

The Berlin Wall was far more than just a wall. It embodied the pain of separation suffered by families and communities during the German division, and was the most potent symbol of the global struggle between communism and capitalism. On this bike tour, we let you experience the traces of the physical Wall that remain in Berlin, and we reconstruct for you this decisive and painful period of Berlin’s and Germany’s history.

Few families remained untouched by the division of the city: parents were separated from children, lovers wound up on the ‘wrong’ side of the Wall and young people wishing to escape the restrictions of East German society had to risk their lives trying to escape over it. In this there is such richness of stories about the Berlin Wall and the East German secret police (Stasi). Some of our guides experienced life in East Germany first hand, and can regale you with tales that range from the tragic to the funny to the absurd.

The fifteen kilometre tour takes in many of the important sites of Berlin Wall history, including the bridge where the first gate of the Wall fell at Bornholmer Strasse, to the Bernauer Strasse Berlin Wall memorial, the government district, and even Checkpoint Charlie. Along the way you will encounter guard towers, the death strip, and hidden stretches of the infamous ‘Anti-Fascist Protection Barrier’. You will also see places like Mauer Park, where old portions of the Wall have been redeveloped into vibrant centers of Berlin’s cultural and social life. Our guides knit together these stories and places to bring this utterly unique chapter of German and Berlin history to life before your eyes!
