Berlin is a true cycling metropolis. Not surprisingly, because with some 650 kilometres of cycle lanes and many flat roads, it is the ideal city to discover by bike. Book a cycle tour of Berlin's highlights during your city break, or choose your own route to discover all the important sights. Cycle, for example, from Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburg Gate and discover historic Berlin. Or cycle along the banks of the Spree and enjoy the combination of nature and architecture.
