About the tour

From the jagged angles of the Jewish Museum to the inner "vineyards" of the Philharmonie, Berlin boasts some of the world's finest architecture. And the easiest way to see it is by bike.

This it’s the best way to discover Berlin while learning about the history of the city through its architecture. This ride covers all the important spots from the Bauhaus Archive to Norman Foster's Reichstag. I will take you to the best classic and modern buildings while chatting about the story and the architect behind each spot. Some of the great sites on this tour include: Brandenburg Gate, Peter Eisenman's Holocaust Memorial, the Netherlands Embassy designed by Rem Koolhaasthe, Frank Gehry's DZ Bank building, Frederick Schinkel's Konzerthaus, and much, much more!

We'll meet at Alexander Platz, the quintessential of East German architecture where we will rent the bikes (14 € rental optional) here we'll have a talk about the history behind the famous TV

Tower and will take you from East to West Berlin to the Bauhaus Archive and on our way we are goign to see the most iconic buildings in town.

- Why is called a Free tour?
