the script of this video: My guide lines for the ultimate bike route in Berlin are: 1) it must be bike friendly with many bike trail as possible. 2) I want to travel inside the city and to experience everything it has to offer including the parks. 3) I want to see east and west Berlin, and the wall in between. 4) I want to experience the modern city and the historical one without going to the touristy places. 5) It must have interesting and relaxing breaks along the way. I constructed a bike rout on google maps, which is free to download on the blog post, link in the description box below. - for this crazy bike travel I will my new bike, it has only one gear but it’s very light wait and fast. The Charlottenburg palace is the largest palace in Berlin, it was built during the late 17th century. And when biking in its gardens we can find a belvedere, a mausoleum, a theatre and a pavilion. Next we bike into the Charlottenburg neighborhood, we will take left at Bismarckstrasse, passing through the Ernst Reuter platz we continue straight ahead until we reach the great tiergarten, the central park of berlin. Here you can feel free to gain some serious speed while you explore one of the most beautiful in all of Germany. Crossing tiergarten to the other side we reach the Brandenburg Gate, we cross it safely to the other side and start riding in east Berlin until we reach the Berlin wall itself. Next in our journey we are going to cycle along Prenzlauer berg. One of the most beloved neighborhoods in east Berlin, especially among young families and foodies as some of the best restaurants are located here. After gaining important calories for the rest of the day, lets continue discover Prenzlauer Berg! The Kulturbrauerei (the culture brewery) was built as a brewery in the 19th century and today it is a cultural center. We continue downhill, careful not to hit the children along the way, until we enter Fridrichshein, another big neighborhood in east Berlin, here we enter a big beautiful park with the same name. Volkspark friedrichshain is a very popular park, today they even shoot a movie here. There are a lot of asphalt roads here, so cycling is very smooth and relaxing. Next we cycle towards Karl marx allee, Stalin alle in the old soviet times, this enormous and wide street was used for soviet propaganda and military parades back in the cold war. While cycling along this street you can look at the remarkable soviet architecture around you. Let’s turn right now in Frankfurter tor and start rolling along the warschauer strasse. At the end of it we reach the famous oberbaumbrucke and the largest remnant of the Berlin wall, East side gallery. Let’s take this moment to walk slowly along the beautiful drawings on the wall. Next, we continue with full power towards schillingbrucke, that leads as back to west Berlin, right to my favorite neighborhood, Kreuzberg! There we can see the St. Michael's Church that was heavily damaged during the Second World War and today it is protected as a historical monument. The garden in front of it was ones a channel, connecting the river spree and the landver channel. And today it is a beautiful and unique walking and biking trail. At the end of it we reach oranienstrasse, where we will turn left and right at Adalbertstraße. After the big square kottbusser tor, we continue straight ahead on kottbusser damm until we reach Herman platz. From there we enter park hasenheide that connect us with the amazing tempelhofer feld, the old airport that is now one of the most beloved open fields in Berlin. Let’s cycle on the runway until we find the north/western exit. Now we rolling down hill to the heart of Kreuzberg, we say hello to the beautiful waterfall in Viktoriapark and continue towards out final destination, park am gleisdreieck.
