Take a powerful guided bike tour back in time through the capital city of Nazi Germany. See the old Jewish quarter where thousands were rounded up during the Holocaust and sent to concentration camps, never to return.
With cushy seats, fat tyres and adjustable handlebars, your bike lets you navigate the streets of Berlin with ease and comfort. An expert guide well-versed on the dark days of the Third Reich will lead the way.
Pedal through the former Jewish quarters of the city, where Jewish businesses were destroyed during the infamous Night of Broken Glass. Take in the magnificent Moorish-inspired New Synagogue, which miraculously survived that horrific night.
Tour the Nazi bunkers topped with anti-aircraft guns that fired on Allied planes and discover one of the few remaining air raid shelters, which was once filled with desperate souls praying to make it through the Battle of Berlin.
Here are the highlights covered by the tour:
Rosenstrasse Protest Memorial
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
German Resistance Museum
Former air raid shelter
Site of Hitler's bunker
Soviet War Memorial
Honour the courageous resistance movements against the Third Reich at the July 20th 1944 Memorial.

Great tour. Will go again and do a simular tour....
The tour covered a serious subject and had to be done in a sensitive manner when visiting such thought-provoking places as the Jewish memorial, sites of executions of plotters...
Got to see the main sites of interest from WW2, of course, many places have since been flattened and re-built but this did not make any difference to the quality of the tour...
