This comprehensive all-in-one city tour takes you to the main sights in Berlin, such as the Berlin Wall, Brandenburg Gate, and Hitler's bunker, as well as hidden gems around the city.

I joined the tour 6th of april, the day before the half maraton. I blamed myself for not wearing a thicker jacket that day with plus 4 degrees. But the enthusiastic,briefed,energyfull, educational, fun scottish man Dave showed talents that puts both teachers and actors on the bench. I learned so much and will come back to take the potsdamer tour next time. Best wishes from the swede in the back.

Schedule

  • 10:00

    Berlin Electric Bike Tour Begins

    Electric bikes are easy to learn and tons of fun to ride. It's just like a traditional bike, but the battery-powered motor quickly scoots you along up to 20 km/h (about 15 mph). This way you won't get at all tired on the tour, and can just focus on having fun.

  • 10:00

    See Berlin's Main Sight and Attractions

    Explore sights such as Viktoriapark Panorama, former Tempelhof Airport, Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Wall, Hitler's Bunker, Luftwaffe Ministry, Victory Column, Soviet War Memorial, Reichstag, Museum Island, Topography of Terror, Bebelplatz and Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

  • Checkpoint Charlie Berlin

    The famous border crossing between East Berlin and West Berlin for Allied forces and foreigners is now an outdoor exhibit detailing the Cold War.

  • Brandenburg Gate

    Arguably Germany's most famous monument, the Brandenburg Gate served as a backdrop for many of Berlin's most important events: Napoleon's march into Berlin, the division of Berlin during the Cold War, famous speeches (Reagan) and concerts (Hasselhof!), and much more.

  • Berlin Wall and Hitler's Bunker

    See one of the last remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, now under historical protection, as we discussed why it was built and how it fell. Stand above Hitler's bunker as we recount the final days of the Third Reich and Hitler's bizarre demise.

  • 16:30

    Rest in a German Beer Garden

    About 2/3 through the tour we stop at a fantastic beer garden in the heart of Berlin's massive city park. This is a great chance to plug your guide for more inside information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the meeting point for the Berlin Electric Bike Tour: All In One City Sightseeing Tour?

All e-bike tours meet at the main entrance of the Berlin TV Tower in Alexanderplatz. You will see the tour guides there along with a large, red flag. If you would like to drop by the shop before the e-bike tour of Berlin, you can find the office around the right-hand corner from entrance, behind the cafe to the right of the Berlin TV Tower entrance.

What's the difference between the Berlin E-Bike tour and regular city tours by bike?

The E-Bike Tour is conducted on exclusively designed modern E-Bikes. As soon as you turn the pedal the battery-powered electric motor kicks in to assist your movement, making the bike move nearly without effort. Because of how easy cycling is with E-Bikes, this tour will go further than standard bike tours to see sites like Tempelhof and the Kurfürstendamm.

Can anyone ride an e-bike?

Yes and no. E-Bikes do not require any special permits or training (the guide will show you everything you need to know before the tour). However, all of the E-Bikes are adult-sized, so if you can not ride an adult bike, you will not be able to ride the E-Bikes. Also, E-Bikes should not be seen as an alternative to bikes for anyone unsteady on a regular bike. If you are not comfortable on a regular bike, you will not be comfortable on an E-Bike.

Do I need to bring anything with me for the Berlin Electric Bike Tour: All In One City Sightseeing Tour?

Be sure to bring your camera and some cash for the lunch break in a Berlin Beer Garden. It is also recommended that you bring an extra layer of clothing in case it gets chilly during the tour. There is a luggage rack on the e-bikes so you can easily carry some small items with you.

Do we stop for lunch on the Berlin Electric Bike Tour: All In One City Sightseeing Tour?

Yes, you will make a stop for lunch during the tour at a Berlin beer garden. Please remember that the cost of food is not included in the tour price, so make sure to have some cash with you.

Is the Berlin Electric Bike Tour: All In One City Sightseeing Tour suitable for children?

While the guides love having families and children on tour, E-Bikes are only available in adult sizes and may not be suitable for your kids. If they are not able to fit on an adult bike confidently, E-Bikes are not the option for you. Alternatively we would suggest one of the standard city bike tours of Berlin.

What if I haven't ridden a bike for a while? Can I continue to join the e-bike city tour of Berlin?

Don’t worry, it’s just like riding a bike! The tours move at a very comfortable pace so don’t worry if you are a bit rusty. If you are worried about being comfortable on the bike, feel free to stop by the shop a bit early and you can take a few practice laps.

What happens if it rains?

The tours run rain or shine. The tours in the rain can be a different kind of fun and an even more fun memory! The guides try their best to take cover but sometimes you will be exposed to the elements. Pocket-sized rain ponchos are for sale in the shop and it is highly recommend that you purchase one before the tour. If you don’t use it, the shop will buy it back from you - it's a bit of a rain insurance policy!

Do we go inside the Berlin museums and monuments?

The tour guides cannot enter the Berlin museums and monuments. German Law restricts museum guides to their authorized officials. Plus, some people would want to spend only ten minutes in the museum while others would prefer 3 hours. Your guide, and the shop staff, will be happy to show you exactly how to go back to any sites you would like to explore further or visit the interior. This applies to all bike and segway tours except Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin. This tour includes entrance tickets and audio-guide of Cecilienhof Palace in Potsdam.

Fantastic all around tour that covered so much in our 5 hour tour. The bikes were great and it was so nice stopping all at once, ...getting off the bikes and learning about the site, instead of waiting to unload the bus and gather at a distant site.

Katie our group leader was a 10+ in knowledge and enthusiasm. What a thrilling learning experience and just an all around fun tour.

Fantastic tour with Ioana our tour guide. She was a wealth of knowledge, pleasant and had a very good command of the English lang...uage. Beautiful day in Berlin, beer garden for lunch and our son enjoyed being the caboose of the bicycle tour when he was rewarded with a liter of beer at the end of the tour and piece of the Berlin wall!
