Here’s a beautiful way to see Berlin on quiet streets – our “Berlin Winter Bicycle Tour”
Going on a guided bike tour in winter is really something special. Of course you have to make sure to dress for the occasion (we recommend lots of layers), but no matter how cold it gets we’ll keep you warm with a) cycling and b) all the stops you need to warm your feet and hands on hot tea or Glühwein (mulled, spiced wine – a German Christmas season tradition).
Places like Brandenburger Tor or Gendarmenmarkt seem eerily deserted in the cold season, compared to the multitudes that swarm the city on a summer’s day. We’ll have the bike lanes more or less to ourselves.
We’ll start our tour with a short ride around our neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg, with its gentrified “tenants barracks”, its beautiful shops and cozy cafés. Then we go straight to the historical city center with Schlossplatz (city castle), Dom and the baroque glory of Prussia’s kings. Berlin’s spectacular contemporary architecture including the government buildings and the new central station – Hauptbahnhof – are en route as well as some of the last traces of the Berlin Wall. Our dedicated and knowledgeable guides will give you tons of background info on Berlin history and everyday life, before getting you back to our depot after about 3.5 hours. Please make sure you make a reservation, since the tour will only run if we have at least 4 participants. If there’s snow or ice on the roads we won’t run the tour for your safety.
