The approximate difficulty level for this tour
Day 1: Individual arrival to Berlin
Individual arrival in the Mitte district of Berlin. You get your bike (if booked) and important informations for the bike tour in the late afternoon. Finish this first day with a cosy dinner (inclusive).
Day 2: Guided sightseeing tour and boating on the River Spree approx.. 15km
An about three hours lasting sightseeing tour shows you famous sights of Berlin like the government district, the Potsdam Square and the Museum Island. In the afternoon you will get many more impressions during a boar trip.
Day 3: Potsdam approx. 25km
Start and end of today’s stage is the main station of Potsdam. You will see the UNESCO World Heritage “Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin” with Sanssouci Palace. The capital of Brandenburg appears international: for example with the Russian Colony and the Dutchman District.
Day 4: Border experience and the Berlin Wall approx. 15km
The tour starts today at the railway station “Gesundbrunnen”. A visit in Berlin would be incomplete without marks of the former division. Therefore your way leads you today alongside the former border. You will see memorial places, watchtowers and the East Side Gallery, a piece of the former Wall, which was painted by artists. You will drive back with the suburban train from the station “Treptower Park”.
Day 5: Bathing time at the Wannsee (lake) approx. 35km
Today the tour begins at the underground station “Onkel Toms Hütte”. At the Wannsee you will see Berlin as a town, which is characterized by forests and water. Stages of the tour lead you to the Schlachtensee (lake), the bathing beach “Wannsee“, the weekend cottage of the painter Max Liebermann and the Glienicker Brücke (bridge).
Day 6: Free day
Culture, history and nature: Enjoy the facets of Berlin or the surrounding, you especially like, on your own today.
Day 7: Departure
Depart after breakfast.
This tour starts in Berlin not only is it the biggest city in Germany but one of the multifaceted ones too. Great buildings from Prussian history like the Brandenburg Gate alternate with evidences of modern architecture like the Sony Centre and the Theatre at the Potsdam Square.
On this tour you will get to know the modern like the historical Berlin, the town of the division of Germany and – for example at the Wannsee (lake) – a green and lake-dotted town too. A little detour to Potsdam, the capital of the neighboring Brandenburg, is part of this journey too. Potsdam awaits you with Sanssouci Palace and a fascinating world-class cultural landscape.
