Visitors can explore a total of 11 museums, such as the Allied Museum, as well as places of special architecture, such as the forest settlement Onkel Toms Hütte with the listed shopping street, its Thursday weekly market and the underground station in the centre, while cycling in Dahlem. Outside the hustle and bustle of Berlin's city centre, cyclists can take a spontaneous break at Schlachtensee or Krummen Lanke, go swimming or do other popular water sports. In one of the numerous cafés and restaurants it is worth stopping to sit back and enjoy in the green.

The route is 18 kilometres long. The Dahlem-Route is a circular route that is signposted in both directions, so that even those not familiar with the area can find their way quickly and easily. Getting on and off the route is possible at two stations of S-Bahn line 1 and five stations of U-Bahn line 3. In this way, the Dahlem Route is very easy to reach for guests and can also be shortened everywhere with underground and suburban trains. With the digital Outdoor Guide Komoot, you can use your own smartphone to see the route along the Dahlem Route.

For those who do not arrive by bike, you can rent bicycles in Onkel-Tom-Ladenstraße at the subway station Onkel-Tom-Hütte near Fahrrad-Lippke.
