Berlin is the wateriest major city in Europe and this tour takes you from the city centre to the largest lake and into the greenest district. Mostly we drive through parks, forests, side streets and along or on waterways: The tour includes a 25-minute passage with a solar ferry. The itinerary offers an insight into how quickly Berlin changes its face and the diversity of the people who live here. On the tour you will experience Berlin’s record-breaking construction work, an unexpected large city oasis as well as the largest, family residential area of Germany. You also get the opportunity to: - discover Berlin's largest and greenest district - board a comfortable ferry and enjoy great views from the water - swim in Berlin's largest lake (optional) - cross the Berlin city border And as if all this wasn't enough, our excursion ends in New Venice, which we reach by ferry. From there we take the train/metro back to the city. Of course, we take several breaks, be it for relaxing, refreshing, discovering, discussing or to grab a snack in a grocery! Duration including return trip to the city is approx. 4,5 h. Total distance to ride approx. 30 km/flat. Recently, a 73-year-old New Zealander attended the ride = you can do it! :-)
Each bike has a bottle holder and a bottle of water is provided.
Tickets for ferry and return trip to the centre (Metro) are included.
Suitable bikes in different sizes are provided and are included in the price. Helmets are provided on request. Of course,…

Are we still in Berlin?" was the astonished question of a tour participant in the middle of a forest, which I was able to say yes to. For many participants, the ferry ride is an absolute highlight, as it offers a new and unexpected perspective (and break at the same time). Even many residents do not know that they live in Europe's major city with the most water - during this tour it becomes particularly clear.

This tour is not very strenuous, but it is an advantage if you are a half-experienced cyclist. Sturdy, well-fitted shoes are beneficial and protection from the sun (headgear/sunscreen) is advised. Helmets are provided on request.
