Overview

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.

See bunkers with anti-aircraft installations, where Nazi soldiers fought until the last at the Battle of Berlin and an air raid shelter where German civilians just tried to make it through.

Peddle by ruined buildings that are a stark reminder of the devastation wrought by World War II, and pay your respects to those who struggled against the Nazis at the July 20th 1944 Memorial.

Learn from your guide about the historical conditions that permitted a maniac like Hitler to assume power over Germany, and learn how the fall of the Third Reich paved the way for the construction of the Berlin Wall and the division of Germany against itself.

Itinerary

  • Please make your way to the main entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, where you will meet your native English-speaking tour guide and collect your bike for this Third Reich and Nazi Germany Bike Tour.

    With cushy seats, fat tires and handlebars that come up to meet you, your bike lets you navigate this cyclist-friendly city with the greatest of ease and comfort.

    An expert guide well-versed on the dark days of the Third Reich will lead you on a moving and educational trek through Berlin, the capital city of the Nazi era.

    You will cover eight lush and leisurely miles in four-and-a-half hours, feeling the exhilaration of the road without any of the strain. Tours are suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

    Stop every hundred yards to learn about the historical significance of the following sites:

    Visit the former Jewish quarters of the city, where Jewish businesses were destroyed during the infamous Night of Broken Glass, named for the shattered store windows that littered the streets. Also take in the magnificent Moorish-inspired New Synagogue, which miraculously survived that horrific night.

    Explore the destroyed remnants of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Berlin’s old main train station, which stand as grim monuments to the everlasting impact of war.

    Tour Nazi bunkers topped with anti-aircraft guns that fired on Allied planes and discover one of the few remaining air raid shelters, which were once filled with desperate souls praying to make it through the Battle of Berlin.

    Honor the courageous resistance movements against the Third Reich at the July 20th 1944 Memorial, which honors the assassination attempt on Hitler’s life, now the basis for Tom Cruise’s controversial new film “Valkyrie”.

    Your tour concludes where it started, at the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz.
