- FOR HISTORY BUFFS!
There are many stories about the Berlin Wall, the Cold War, the GDR and the Stasi. Some of them were experienced by our guides themselves, some funny, others sad. Learn more!
On our private bike tours you get to explore the city with your own personal guide.
You can choose between a bespoke tour designed with your own interests in mind, or you can select one of our classic tours, such as the Berlin Highlights Bike Tour, Berlin Wall Tour, Alternative Berlin Bike Tour, Street Art Berlin, or Oases Berlin. This tour gives you plenty of flexibility: you can decide the starting time, the length of your tour, and the time you’d like to spend on refreshments or breaks.
Our experienced Berlin guides will enrich your experience of Berlin. If you have specific topics in mind, such as for example the Cold War, the Third Reich or Jewish Berlin, we can create a tour for you. Our guides are flexible too, and can adapt the route during the tour according to conversations or questions you might have. Our guides will strive to answer all your questions about the fascinating, painful history of Berlin, and it’s every-changing contemporary landscape.The more we know about your group, the easier it is to find the best guide for you.
Should you wish for something different to our shorter city tours, we can design a special programme for you. These include special interest tours, including all-day or multi-day trips through Berlin and beyond, to for example Potsdam, or other areas surrounding the city. We are happy to arrange personalized bike delivery and pick-up so you can start your guided tour at your hotel, a restaurant or a museum of your choice.

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.
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.
