Historic Centre Tour
This interesting tour takes you through the bustling heart of the city of Berlin.
First, we ride from the Brandenburg Gate along the many historic buildings along Unter den Linden over to Museum island and the Berlin Cathedral. We check out the Berlin City Palace, also called the Humboldt Forum, the former heart of the capital currently being rebuilt decades after its destruction. From here, we head over to Hackescher Markt and the Hackesche Höfe, one of the largest historic sets of residential and commercial courtyards from the 19th century and now a centre for Berlin’s nightlife. We then ride along the Spree with views of Museum Island across the river over to the New Synagogue on Oranienburger Straße. Oranienburgerstraße and the adjacent quarter are known for the many bars, restaurants, and galleries that opened here after the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
This was once the city’s Jewish Quarter, as witnessed by a few remaining buildings and monuments.
We then ride along lively and interesting Tucholskystraße and Auguststraße with their many bars and galleries to Oranienburger Tor. We then head back down busy Friedrichstraße to the major Friedrichstraße rail station over to the new government district.
