How to explore Berlin on a bike

The German capital has a dramatic and turbulent history, which is reflected in the sights and attractions you can visit today. But from a tragic past has risen an equally bright future, and Berlin has blossomed into a trendy culture hub, with an incredible live music scene and arguably the best clubbing on planet earth.

German cycling rules

In safe hands

Always use hand signals to communicate your intentions while riding your rental bike. One hand straight up means stopping, right hand to the side – turning right, left hand to the side … you get the drill.

Fall in line

Riding two abreast is forbidden on roads – always ride single file even in a bicycle lane. I know, that sounds so German!

You’ve only got 2 wheels

It is illegal for bicycles to be on the autobahn, so don’t be caught trying to race 120 Km/h traffic.

Stay sober or park your bike

Don’t even think about cycling under the influence of alcohol or drugs – you’ll face a hefty fine if you do, not to mention the risk of an accident. Also, well, we don’t want a smashed up rental bike 🙂
