- THE REAL BERLIN
This tour is a celebration of our wonderful home town Berlin and its colourful people, street life and everything else that makes Berlin a great place.
Berlin, so colourful, lively and enormous, can sometimes be a little overwhelming. What about the quieter places, where projects, parklands, and hidden corners exist? We have designed a tour to show you just these places!
All our guides have their own insider tips for the green and creative spaces of Berlin. This tour can take you along the waterways, through some of Berlin’s many parks, via unexpected and surreal cityscapes that have their own little paradises.
We pass the sites of strange events not recounted in history books: African beach bars, parks, backyards, former airports, farms, villages, rivers, lakes: let us surprise you with a very different Berlin beyond the Prussian solemnity of the Government District and the central touristic sites. Different every time, this bike tour from oasis to oasis in the city is perfect for locals and more experienced Berlin visitors.

Spacious parks, secluded spots by the water, former factories that are used to produce art today, forgotten monuments and surprising views.
Each of our guides has created their own personal oases tour. On an exclusive tour, we can accommodate your wishes, e. g. whether we should go to the former Tempelhof Airport, now used as a park, or to the green Pankow neighbourhood or to unknown places right in the middle of the city center.
Let’s find out what Berlin has to offer besides tourist attractions and lots of history.
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.

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.
