Bicycle Tours through Berlin - Environmentally Friendly City Tours
There are many ways to explore the sights of Berlin, including by boat, on foot or in tourist busses. Yet each of these forms is limited: the boat, for example, only shows you life on the banks of the canals and rivers, walking means your radius can be limited, and tour busses stick to the main routes and sites of the city.
A bicycle tour guided by locals is different. There are less limits on what you can see, and it is an ideal way to explore the vastness of Berlin, experience its colours and sounds and smells, with the wind in your face, your senses alive. You can experience the path of the Berlin Wall, then still make it to the tourist highlights at the centre of the city and beyond, to discover Berlin’s alternative and more hidden places.
Berlin is a cycling city. The landscape is flat, traffic is adapted to cyclists, and the network of cycling paths is constantly being expanded.
We will take you behind the scenes of the city, to the courtyards and backstreets of Berlin’s many neighbourhoods, and on our tours there is always time to take beautiful photographs.
Berlin on Bike is an environmentally friendly, healthy way to explore Germany’s capital, that will leave you with treasured memories.
Private Tours - Bike Tours with your own guide
Experience Berlin – Guided Bike Tours
A guided bicycle tour by locals is the best way to discover Berlin. In smaller, individualized groups, you’ll enjoy the city’s expansive, green and primarily flat urban landscape. On routes, almost entirely separated from automobile traffic, our bike guides will take you to some of Berlin’s most interesting, exciting and unexpected places and sights.
We give you a behind the scenes look at the decaying facades of Kreuzberg, not to mention the grandiose baroque Prussian palaces in Berlin’s city center, Third Reich Germany, the Berlin Wall and Cold War times and many more. On a variety of bike tours in different languages each day, our bike guides inspire and entertain guests with Berlin’s spectacular history, lifestyle and landcapes. An average distance of 17km makes our tours easy to handle for all ages and physical conditions.
We also offer private bike tours. Perfect for small or large groups, school or company outings, our individualized tours are available in Dutch, English, French, Swedish and Spanish. Additional languages are available upon request.

Berlin on Bike offers daily public bike tours in English, Dutch and German. You can choose from several themed bike routes in our program and usually register at short notice. The average group size is 8 to 12 people, with a maximum of 15 guests. The bicycle tours take place when a minimum of 4 participants registers.
We also offer private bicycle tours: with these your family, friends or colleagues will enjoy the exclusive attention of one of our bike guides. Private tours can be tailored to suit individual needs, including as many breaks as you might wish for, and bespoke catering stops at places requested, as well as detours to particular sites you might be interested in seeing.
In addition to our “main languages” English, Dutch and German, private tours can also be booked in French, Spanish or Swedish.
For the private bike tours, we ask for a little more advance notice when booking, to give us time to find the right guide for your group. However, you may also be lucky with a request at short notice, e.g. the day before.
All Berlin on Bike public bike tours start at the Kulturbrauerei (means “Culture Brewery”) in the Prenzlauer Berg district. The brewery grounds have several entrances, the best way to get to us is through the archway at Knaackstraße 97. From the underground station Eberswalder Straße (underground line 2, three stops north of Alexanderplatz) it’s a 200-metre walk.
For private tours with your own bikes, the start can be arranged individually. Delivery of our bikes for your private bike tour is also possible for an additional charge – but this is usually only worthwhile for larger groups.
On average our group bike tours consist of between eight and twelve participants. On our regular bike tours, fifteen people per group is our maximum. If there are more registrations, we provide more guides, to ensure that groups remain manageable in size, for the sake of safety and for the enjoyment of our guests.
A minimum of four guests is required for a bike tour to run.
In the case of private bike tours, we recommend that groups do not exceed fifteen guests at a time. Larger groups will be divided up, with more guides allocated to the tour.
