Recommendations for independent activities


Bike Tour- Berlins Best

http://berlinonbike.de/en/bike-tour/berlins-best/

Our “Berlin’s Best” bike tour begins in Prenzlauer Berg, once a working class area and now endlessly trendy, with its painstakingly restored historical houses that were built during the Industrial Era of the Wilhelminian boom. After that, it’s off to Berlin’s historical city center, where Museum Island, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag are just a few of the many sites you will experience first hand. You’ll see how 40 years of the GDR (communist East Germany) left its mark on the city, and you’ll get a feeling for contemporary Germany with the breathtaking architecture of the new government district.

Price: 25€ incl. a bike per person

Bike rental point: Knaackstraße 97; 10435 Berlin (https://goo.gl/maps/GpqPh)

Duration: 3-4 hours


The Underground of Berlin: Guided Tour, Subways and Bunkers in the Cold War

http://berliner-unterwelten.de/tour-3.15.1.html

This tour follows the traces of the Cold War in the underground. In West Berlin civil defence shelters were reactivated or newly built in preparation for a possible nuclear war. Particularly after the building of the Berlin Wall, the West German government and the West Berlin senate invested millions in these projects. Some of these were built as ‘multi-purpose structures’ and are currently used as underground stations, parking garages and storage facilities. By explaining the practical preparations made to help people survive, this tour attempts to make the realities and horrors of such conflict easy to comprehend.

Price: 11€ per person 

Meeting point: Brunnenstrasse 105; 13355 Berlin (https://goo.gl/maps/vNSI5)
