Starting at the former prestige object of the GDR – the television tower – our Berlin bike tour first leads into the former government center of the GDR with the State Council building and the building of the former Central Committee of the socialist party. Afterwards we will follow the former border strip until we reach the East Side Gallery, the longest remaining piece of the Berlin Wall. During our tour we cross several times from East to West Berlin – and back. Soon we will discover a watchtower on our tour and follow the Spree River until we reach a beer garden for a refreshment break. In the huge Treptower Park we will visit the impressive Soviet War Memorial, the largest of its kind in Germany. When we are heading back to the Television Tower we will get to the street Karl-Marx-Allee and you will almost believe that you are in Moscow.
