Berlin Wall bike tour

Cycle along the former Berlin Wall

A double row of cobblestones traces the Berlin Wall’s route over 5.7 kilometres through the city centre. This tour from the East Side Gallery to Bernauer Strasse via Potsdamer Platz passes memorials, Berlin Wall remnants, former border watchtowers and documentary panels with photos and details of the area’s history.

The complete Berlin Wall trail

Do you have a bit more time and don’t shy away from long rides? Then hop on your bike at Bernauer Straße and follow the 150-kilometre-long former Berlin Wall and take in all of its history. The former patrol road is mostly paved with asphalt and still in good condition, making it excellent for cycling. If you keep to the signs, that are placed exactly at a height of 3.6 metres (the height of the former wall), you can cycle past the old fragments of the wall, border paths and other places of interest along the route.

Plan your tour with the cycling app komoot or the book "Berliner Wall-Trail" by Michael Cramer, Esterbauer Verlag.
