Cycling

The people of Berlin have long since discovered that the bicycle is a practical, healthy and speedy alternative to the car or train. The city is criss-crossed by a network of cycle paths offering a relatively relaxed way of getting around the city. The terrain is mainly flat, with just a few gently sloping sections that are fairly easy to negotiate. Many of the paths broaden out as they pass through the city's wealth of green spaces. Berlin's many attractions are also easily accessible by bike. If you wish to explore the city at your own pace, simply follow the well-signposted cycling routes. If you prefer to be accompanied by a guide, you can join one of the many cycling group tours on offer.
