Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet and greet the tour guide and group near the entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, a large public square and transport hub in the center of Berlin. After getting fitted for a Beach Cruiser bike and helmet, there will be a brief introduction to Berlin — as the capital city of Nazi Germany and the Third Reich — before beginning the approximately 4.5-hour ride around and through this cultural center of modern-day Germany. 

The first stop is the Neue Synagoge, the former Jewish quarter of Berlin with two distinct memorials to Jewish victims and Jewish courage. See the Luftwaffe Ministry, one of the many remaining Third Reich buildings and former headquarters of the Nazi air force. Check out one of the last remaining civilian air raid shelters and hear how they are being reused today.

Discover some of the impressive examples of Nazi architecture. A few buildings are still in use while others were badly damaged in battle. Visit the Reichstag Building, the modern-day meeting place of the German Parliament; Bebelplatz, the site of the infamous Nazi book-burning; and stand over the area of Hitler’s bunker, recounting his last days and the end of World War II. Also, see the remains of Berlin Anhalter Bahnhof, the city’s former railway station that was also used as a deportation station for Holocaust victims.

Finally, visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also known as the Holocaust Memorial. 

During the tour, there will be time to stop for lunch (own expense).

The tour ends back in Alexanderplatz.

This was a great tour and a highlight of our visit to Europe. Randall, a transplanted Aussie with a love of history, takes you on a roughly 15 mile bike ride all through Berlin, providing a colorful and insightful look at the Third Reich and Nazi points of interest. The ride takes you down the city streets, parks and a lunch break at a beer garden. They even accommodated our 3 yr old granddaughter, providing a toddler bike seat and helmet. Highly recommended.

Our bike tour was excellent and our guide was superb! We enjoyed riding around the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we loved hearing about the history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is considering it. It was even a little rainy and we pulled out our ponchos purchased for 1 euro and had a great time! Thanks so much for a memorable day!
