What you'll do
Let me show you the beautiful and historic West of Berlin. We'll cycle easily through lovely nature, see wonderful villas and you'll hear about fascinating aspects of Berlin history. From Charlottenburg we ride straight to the heart of famous villa quarter Grunewald where pretty mansions are abundant and German history comes alive. Grunewald literally means ‘Green Forest’ and this exclusive quarter to the west of Berlin is a lovely and leafy place to ride. A historic part of Berlin and home to the great and the good, the quarter is full of elegant mansions, tree-lined streets and lush green parks. We’ll take to Grunewald’s cycle lanes and cruise its serene boulevards while I point out places of historic interest and the homes of notable Berliners. I’ll bring local history alive, showing you also the spots of deportations, assassinations as well as memorials to Germany’s turbulent 20th century history. We end our time together in a traditional German bakery where you can optionally buy yourself a nice cup of coffee or cold lemonade (on your own expense). Ready for this special experience? Let's go! :)
Hello, dear visitors of Berlin! My name is Karsten and I’m an enthusiastic cyclist and photographer living in Berlin for almost 2 decades. I’ve developed an intimate knowledge of my neighbourhood, which I look forward to sharing with you during our ride through the Grunewald. I’m also an expert historian, and have published a book about Berlin during the Weimar Republic for my PhD. This experience brings together all my passions.
