This Berlin bike tour takes in all the central sites of Berlin, and way more! We begin in Prenzlauer Berg, once a working class slum, now a trendy central neighbourhood for the chic and monied of the city, exploring its painstakingly restored historical apartment blocks that were built during the industrial era of the Wilhelminian boom. After that, it’s off to the historical city centre, where Museum Island, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag are just a few of the famous sites you will experience first hand. You’ll encounter remnants of Prussia’s glory, and traces left behind by the 40 years when Communist East Germany had its capital on one side of Berlin. You will also see the rapidly changing contemporary landscape of the city, including the breathtaking architecture of the new government district.
This bike tour is the ideal introduction to Berlin. Through story and fact telling we get to communicate to you our passion and enthusiasm for this fascinating city, and guide you through its complex history and its every-changing present.- Simply the best of Berlin!

Our guides adapt the bike tours to weather conditions, participants’ interests, street closures and sometimes their own preferences. Changes and deviations are possible.
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.
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.
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.
