Alternative Berlin City Bicycle Tour

This bike tour takes you through three of the most lively, colourful and multi-cultural neighbourhoods in the city. In the twentieth century Berlin has repeatedly been a magnet for people seeking alternative ways of living, and in Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain you will encounter the famed nightlife, the cultural diversity and the energy of these scenes.

Alternative Berlin Bicycle Tour through Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain & Prenzlauer Berg

The bike tour starts off in the former heart of East Berlin’s counterculture Prenzlauer Berg, now still bohemian but mostly chic and gentrified. We continue to trendy Friedrichshain with its world-famous landmark the East-Side-Gallery, a former stretch of the Berlin Wall that artists turned into an open-air gallery in 1990. Finally your guide will show you the most famous and alternative Berlin district of them all – Kreuzberg. Artists, squatters and immigrants from all over the world have turned this neighbourhood into the center of Berlin subculture.

Experience Berlin’s vibrant underground culture

You will encounter backyard theatres, graffiti art, creative projects, street cafés and hidden gems, as well as the diverse club culture the city is famous for. There are also the traces of Berlin’s and Germany’s recent past everywhere, in the monolithic facades of old East Berlin apartments in Friedrichshain or the graffiti sprayed wildness of the West Berlin enclave of Kreuzberg and its legendary party scene from the 1970s and 1980s.

Cycling Alternative Berlin – Creative Neighbourhoods

We also raise some of the social questions facing Berlin today, as the creatives of these neighbourhoods struggle with dramatically rising rents. Yet in the positive energy you will encounter everywhere, amidst the crowds of people gathered on the streets, along the canals and in parks, the anarchic energy of these neighbourhoods live on!
