Trip Info

On the three to four-hour tour you will learn how the cherry trees came to be planted on the border strip at Bornholmer Straße, where the Monday Demonstrations originated, and where to find an original part of the Berlin Wall (including death strip), stretching over 212 meters. Or why there are metal images of rabbits embedded in asphalt. In a lot of places, the course of the Wall can still be followed today, as it is demarcated by pavestones in the ground.

You will have the unique opportunity of going through the Brandenburg Gate on wheels, as this is only possible by bicycle. Regular traffic has been barred from passing through it for years. You will also learn how the Tränenpalast (Palace of Tears) came to its name, and where on earth it is.

From Checkpoint Charlie, the last stop of the Berlin Wall Tour, we will cross the boroughs of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg and pass many interesting sites, e.g. the famous variety show venue Friedrichstadtpalast, Tacheles gallery, Hackesche Höfe ‘backyards’ to name but a few, and then head back to Bornholmer Straße. We will pass many more sites during this tour, which you will just have to find out about there and then.
