Our orientation tour for Berlin first timers
The first impression is the most important, that’s particularly true when traveling. You probably know the feeling: you arrive in a new place and the sites and impressions of the first few hours are etched in your memories for a lifetime. It’s a shame that often exactly this part of the trip is filled with tedious organizational details: a bus transfer to the hotel, trying to figure out the metro system, deciding who sleeps where and, of course, unpacking.
Our Welcome Walk Tour is the perfect start to a perfect Berlin trip. When you arrive, for example at the new main train station, our guides are waiting on the platform to pick you up, while your luggage is delivered to your hotel.
That way, you can experience Berlin 100% from the moment you arrive. The Chancellor Angela Merkel’s office is in sight of the spectacular new station. We’ll walk past glittering new government buildings, peer into one or two windows and see German democracy in action. You’ll see the Reichstag with its modern glass dome and hear about its fascinating role in 20th century German history, then it’s off to the Brandenburg Gate.
Or we could head over to Oranienburger Straße and Hackescher Markt, where Berlins famous night life starts to pulse in the early evening hours.
Our Berlin crash course lasts around 90 minutes. After that, we accompany you to your hotel either by foot or with public transportation. Or, if you like, we can arrange a bus transfer. That way, you can have a relaxing start and you can focus on what’s important, enjoying Berlin!

How to find Berlin on BikeAll of our tours begin at the “Kulturbrauerei” in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district. The painstakingly restored brewery complex is the ideal place to test out your bike before the tour. A variety of restaurants and beer gardens just around the corner offer the perfect way to relax and reflect after a fabulous tour. The easiest way to enter the brewery is on the Knaackstraße 97, just beyond the intersection with the Danziger Straße . After that you just follow the yellow “Berlin on Bike” signs.
