  • Visit the sights with a dedicated, expert English-speaking guide
  • See Berlin from east to west - trace the wall that divided the world
What to expect

You will head away from the Mitte district and the pedestrian Cold War sights to take in more of the former East, more of the Wall, and more of what makes Berlin the unique city it is today. On our Berlin Wall Bike Tour you will visit the Berlin Wall Memorial, see a former watchtower, visit the land once known as the no-man's land, see where the East German Secret Police kept their secret files, and learn about escape attempts in the places they took place.

To put the Cold War into perspective we’ll timeline other important worldwide events to show how these effectively put Berlin at the forefront of Cold War tension. This is a great opportunity to ask your guide more questions about the Cold War or the Berlin of today.
