Guided bike tour through the former artists’quarter in Prenzlauer Berg
Our guided bicycle tour in the cold season takes us through the former student and artist quarter along the boulevard Kastanienallee in creative trendy neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg. The “Prenzlberg”, as the Berlin call it, has experienced the biggest change since the opening of the Berlin Wall.
Known as the bohemian district in GDR times, after the fall of the Wall many young people from all over the world moved to the old unrenovated apartments from the 19th century. Low rents and a lively nightlife led to his popularity, which continues today. On our bike tour we will review the wild time together.
We take a look at the few, not yet renovated houses from the squatters time and throw it a bit on the impressive Berlin Street Art and lively pub scene Oderberger road.
On the Berlin Wall trail to the memorial Bernauer Straße
Thousands of people flocked to the West on the night of November 9-10, 1989 when the frontier opened. We let the events on Berlin Wall trail revive again and continue on the former death strip of the Berlin Wall Memorial, the central central place of remembrance of the German division.
Why was the wall built? How did life feel then? How did the wall fall? On this tour you will learn all about the eventful history and change of the formerly divided capital. A highlight for everyone – whether Berlin novice or typical Berliner.
From the district around Hackescher Markt to the top Berlin highlights
The neighborhood around the Hackescher Markt, the Scheunenviertel, was once the center of Jewish life in Berlin. What remained of the largest synagogue in Germany after the war, shines more brightly today: the New Synagogue in Oranienburger Strasse. From there we drive through the Monbjioupark and the Museum Island, one of the most important museum areas in the world, along the river Spree to the Palace of Tears, the former departure hall of the border crossing next to the train station Friedrichstrasse.
And what should on a perfect Berlin tour not be missed?
From here, the tour takes you right into the center of Berlin’s government district, consisting of the Chancellery, the Reichstag and the Bundestag, past the Brandenburg Gate, THE landmark of Berlin, with a view of the Victory Column in the heart of the Tiergarten park. Via the “Champs-Élysées of Berlin”, Unter den Linden, we reach the Forum Fridericianum, which iconsists the State Opera, parts of the Humboldt University, the State Library and the first Catholic Church in Berlin. In the center of the forum is the Bebelplatz, where a memorial remembers the book burning of the Nazis in 1933.
Our tour is gradually coming to an end at this point: we drive once more on the Museum Island, past the Berlin Cathedral back to the Fashion quarter Hackescher Markt with a stopover in the magnificent Hackeschen Höfe until we finally return with many great new impressions of Berlin in the Kastanienallee.
