Itinerary

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

Berlin Wall
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.

Hitler's Bunker
Stand above Hitler's bunker as we recount the final days of the Third Reich and Hitler's bizarre demise.

Watchtower
See one of the last remaining watchtowers in the Berlin Wall no-man's-land isolating West Berlin within East Germany.

Topography of Terror
This former headquarters of the infamous Nazi 'Gestapo' and SS is now a free museum detailing interrogations by the Nazis that took place here.

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.

Luftwaffe Ministry
The massive former headquarters building of the Nazi Luftwaffe Ministry still stands and is now the main building of Germany's Finance Ministry.

Beer Garden Break
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.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
This recently-finished memorial is powerful to all who visit. Its 2711 blocks of various heights sit on undulating ground to give those walking through it a sense of solice and solitude.

Bebelplatz
Directly in front of the main building and library of Germany's most prestigious university, this was the site of the Nazi's infamous book-burning on May 10, 1933.

Museum Island
This is home to five of Berlin's most famous museums, notably the Pergamon Museum and the Egyptian Museum (now housed in the Altes Museum).

Reichstag
Germany's famous parliament building stood just in front of the Wall in West Berlin, a testament that the final chapters of Berlin's 20th Century had yet to be written. Germany moved it's federal government back to Berlin in 1999.

Potsdamer Platz
The new "downtown" of Berlin with unparalleled modern architecture.

Soviet War Memorial
See the first of more than 500 war memorials the Soviets had built in former East Germany. This is the site of the first Soviet tanks to enter into Berlin in April 1945 as well as where 2500 fallen Soviet troops are buried.

Victory Column
This massive symbol of victory by the Prussian army over the Danes, Austrians, and French was relocated along the massive East-West Axis in accordance to Hitler's infamous redesign of Berlin

" Do it — even if it's raining! "
5 out of 5 stars
The Day City Bike Tour was my introduction to this extraordinary city. The bikes are easy to ride and comfortable, even on a trip of over 4 hours for someone who hasn't ridden a bike much recently. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable — well chosen for the job. We saw the major sites at just the right pace. The lunch stop was also well chosen. Although the weather was fine when we started, it rained heavily for more than half the trip. I had a rain jacket, but it was not enough to stop me getting soaked everywhere, including inside my daysack. No matter — the tour is that good. My advice would be to take top-to-toe waterproof clothing (ie, rain jacket and waterproof trousers you can slip on over your regular trousers) and a waterproof cover for your daysack. Such precautions are worthwhile for any sort of touring, not just cycling. This trip whetted my appetite for more cycling in the Tiergarten — next time I'm in Berlin! I would also be keen to do the tour to the seamier side of the city. Everyone should see Berlin, and a bike tour is a great start — whatever the weather!
" Excellent tour! "
