Cycling in the Tiergarten

Cycling in the Tiergarten

In the heart of the city, you’ll find the famous Tiergarten, which is Berlin’s most popular park. There’s an abundance of cycling routes to be found among the foliage here if you rent a bike in Berlin, and close by you’ll discover some of the best attractions the city has to offer. Stand and admire the stunning Brandenburg Gate and pay your respects at the Holocaust museum with its emotional and iconic Jewish Memorial.

And just next door you can enjoy more dramatic architecture, with the historic Reichstag Building home to the German parliament’s corridors of power.
Cycling around Alexanderplatz

Cycling around Alexanderplatz

Located in the Mitte district, Alexanderplatz is one of the city’s most visited squares and a great place to take your rental bike in Berlin. Perhaps the most famous attraction here is the unmissable (literally!) TV tower, a 365-metre structure with a rotating viewing platform and restaurant at its top. You can’t miss it from almost anywhere in the city, and it holds a vital role in pictures and postcards of the Berlin skyline.

Close by you’ll encounter Museum Island, a UNESCO world heritage site, so-called because of the five amazing museums located there. Those who want to shop until they drop can find some world-class stores in the region, including the Alexa shopping mall. However, be careful when carrying your purchases on your handlebars afterwards.
Cycling in Treptower Park

Cycling in Treptower Park

Those with their sea legs can park the rental bike and take a boat tour on the Spree, while the stargazers among you mustn’t miss the Archenhold Observatory, which houses the largest refracting telescope in the world.

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 🙂
