Urban Gardening Tour
Urban oases and parks
Berlin is also the capital of urban gardening culture. On this relaxed bike tour we visit with you the most beautiful community gardens of the city and let us be inspired by the special Berlin flair. On this tour through the city we see of course many other sights, but especially we show you the hidden oases of the city. This tour offers Berlin lifestyle, secret places, alternative life and a lot of relaxation in the city. A highlight is the leisurely drive across the Tempelhofer Feld and the visit of the Allmende Community Gardens. We are happy to plan a picnic or a beer garden visit here. If you wish, we can also continue to the Britzer Garten. The tour is also very suitable for company trips and groups who want to make an excursion in the city. To make the tour a unique experience, you can choose between our brand new touring and trekking bikes, or just try out e-bikes.

Princess gardens in Kreuzberg
The princess gardens at Moritz Square in Kreuzberg are the forerunners of the urban gardening movement in Berlin and also one of the most popular community gardens we visit on our bike tour. In 2009 the group nomadish green rented the fallow land at the corner of Moritz Square to realize their vision of growing fresh and organic vegetables and herbs regionally in the city. It was also about sharing the knowledge of natural farming with like-minded people and strengthening the community experience.
Allmendekontor on the Tempelhof airfield
A real highlight on our Urban Gardening bike tour through Kreuzberg and Neukölln, the two scene districts in the so hip Berlin. And no place in Berlin can be better explored by bike than Tempelhofer Feld. A must for all Berlin lovers who want to discover the real Berlin away from the classic tourist attractions. Meanwhile 8 years ago, the Berliners fight for this unique place through a petition for a referendum against the conversion of the Tempelhofer Feld. Preserved in its original form, the field is used as a recreational area in many ways. The completely preserved runway invites to biking, kite surfing and skateboarding. On the wide area there is a baseball field, a beer garden, barbecue areas, an extra exercise area for dogs, lots of space to fly your kite or just play soccer.
