Offers for school groups
Experience Berlin on a school trip by bike – a relaxed ride suitable for students of all ages.
Every year, over 20,000 pupils explore Berlin on one of our educational cycling tours, until the recent disruption to this that Covid wrought. A guided bike tour is one of the top activities undertaken by student groups visiting the city.
The pace is perfect for youngsters: cycling interspersed with information stops where guides tell fascinating stories about Berlin. These bike tours are a perfect way for students and their teachers to immerse themselves in Berlin and its intense history, as well as the history of Germany.
Our school group tours offer much more than just seeing the famous sights of Berlin, like the Brandenburg Gate and the Government Quarter. Most of our guides have years of experience working with school groups and we place great importance on dynamic presentation with a personal touch, as well as consideration of the needs and knowledge levels of individual groups.
For a typical group size of 20 to 30 students with two teachers, we divide the class into two, with two guides leading the groups separately through the city.
3-hour school cycling tours
Why was Germany divided after World War II and a wall built? How did people live in East and West – and why are there still differences 30 years after the fall of the Wall?…
We select the routes of our tours carefully, and our guides receive specialist training in managing bike tours. We favour routes that lead away from the busy main roads of the city, and try wherever possible to stick to quiet streets and cycle paths, for maximum safety and enjoyment.
50% of Berlin households do not own a car, and travelling by bike or public transport is the norm here, which means that car drivers are used to cyclists.
The luminous orange vests worn by our bike guides and a volunteer at the back of the bike tour make us easy to spot on the roads. In Berlin it is possible to enjoy a safe and relaxed bike tour, including with children.

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.
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.
2-hour walking tours
