- 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 has always been a mecca for creatives from around the world. The city’s public spaces are alive with the works of artists who strive to define their own ideas of beauty and creativity.
How and where does art and creativity develop in Berlin? It’s all about atmosphere and lifestyle, creativity in a larger context, and influencing and sculpting the urban environment. Where a guerrilla art sculpture stands today, the next luxury loft apartment could take its place tomorrow.
Whether in Kreuzberg, Wedding or Mitte, every vacant lot or building facade has the potential to become an exhibition space. From classic street art to urban farming, on this bike tour we visit projects that push and blur the boundaries between what is sanctioned and what is illegal.
We start off in lively Prenzlauer Berg and give you a short introduction to the history of Berlin’s street art scene. We show you some of the different techniques artists use, like stencils, stickers, paste-ups etc. before we go on to explore Mitte, Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg – always looking for the latest artworks, be it graffiti, murals, stencils or sculptures.
Another hotspot for street art in Berlin is the funky East Berlin neighbourhood of Friedrichshain. There are a rich array of artworks to discover here on the graffiti covered walls of the former railway workshop RAW, in murals by street art greats like El Bocho and Cranio around Holzmarkt and of course in the world-famous murals of the East Side Gallery, painted on 1.3 kilometres of original Berlin Wall that still runs along the river Spree.
Crossing the Spree you will find some of Berlin’s most famous murals in the multi-cultural neighbourhood of Kreuzberg. Street art is ubiquitous here, with large-scale murals by international artists like BLU, Herakut, Victor Ash and ROA jostling alongside smaller scale but nonetheless exciting bursts of local graffiti and other forms of urban art.

On this tour we will explore Berlin’s vibrant art scene beyond museums and galleries.. There is no fixed route, as Street Art is ephemeral: the patterns of urban creativity pulse and flow in constantly changing expressions that we follow as they emerge and vanish and emerge into something else altogether.
Our guides will show you their personal urban art highlights and will surprise you with lots of beautiful Berlin street art pieces.

The Street Art Bike Tour Berlin starts 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 street art 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 public street art bike tours in English and German language every Friday and Sunday.
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 and is suitable for families, couples or groups of friends.
We also offer private bicycle street art tours through Berlin: 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 as well as detours to particular sites you might be interested in seeing.
For the private street art 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.
