What To Expect
Begin your day in the morning, meeting your guide at a pre-arranged location near Alexanderplatz. Before you get started, listen to an orientation from your guide on the Berlin Wall and your planned route. Over the course of your ride, cycle about six miles (10 kilometers), listening to stories about how Berlin was originally split apart after World War II, along with tales of the Berlin Airlift, behind-the-scenes espionage by the Allies and the East German secret police (Stasi), the end of communism and how the city exists today.
Start cycling down the main thoroughfare of East Berlin, heading to the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall that still stands today, the East Side Gallery. This particular strip covers more than 3,300 feet (one kilometer) of graffiti-strewn concrete. Pedal along three miles (five kilometers) of land where the wall once existed, learning about some the key differences in daily life for residents on both sides of this Cold War barrier.
Stop by the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse, which was a former crossing point between East and West Berlin.
Take a break for lunch about halfway through your ride (at your own expense) before continuing your ride to discover more incredible escape attempts (some that worked, others that failed), the deathstrip watchtowers, and many more sites. Finish back at your original departure point in the afternoon.
