What you'll do

Berlin is the wateriest major city in Europe and this tour takes you from the city centre to the largest lake and into the greenest district. Mostly we drive through parks, forests, side streets and along or on waterways: The tour includes a 25-minute passage with a solar ferry.

The itinerary offers an insight into how quickly Berlin changes its face and the diversity of the people who live here. On the tour you will experience Berlin’s record-breaking construction work, an unexpected large city oasis as well as the largest, family residential area of Germany.

You also get the opportunity to:
- discover Berlin's largest and greenest and district
- board a comfortable ferry and enjoy great views from the water
- swim in Berlin's largest lake (optional)
- cross the Berlin city border

And as if all this wasn't enough, our excursion ends in New Venice, which we reach by ferry. From there we take the train/metro back to the city .

Of course, we take several breaks, be it for relaxing, refreshing, discovering, discussing or to grab a snack in a grocery!

Duration including return trip to the city is approx. 4,5 h. Total distance approx. 30 km/flat. Recently, a 73-year-old New Zealander attended the ride.

Where you'll be

"Are we still in Berlin?" was the astonished question of a tour participant in the middle of a forest, which I was able to say yes to.

Often, small, hidden paths lead to historic buildings or squares with great panoramic views, e.g. on the shores of Lake Müggelsee (first pic).

I had an absolutely amazing day on this tour. I genuinely recommend it for everyone - tourist or Berliner alike. It takes you off the beaten path to places that even some locals have no clue about. Altogether very informative and fun day in beautiful places. And Micha is very fun and accomodating guy with good knowledge about the subject. Next time I'm in Berlin i would definitely go on this tour again :)

This trip was a hidden treasure. You think you know the city you live in, but this bike+boat ride opened me up to so many insights about Berlin. Michael was an amazing host and gave us little back stories about the places enroute. It loved every part of the experience.

Eine schöne Radtour durch unbekannte Teile der Stadt Berlin. Michael hat viele schöne und komische Geschichten zu erzählen und kennt sich sehr gut aus. Die Tour geht abwechselnd durch Wohngebiete, durchs Land und durch den Wald. Dazu ein fröhliches Picknick an der Müggelsee, eine schöne Bootfahrt und am Ende ein erfrischender Tauch im Wasser von Klein-Venedig, was soll man sich sonst noch wünschen?

This is a unique experience. Michael will show you parts of Berlin that you didn't know existed. There's so much more outside of the touristy centre. For anyone thinking about doing this but being put off by the cycling, give it a try. It's a challenge but very rewarding. This was a flawless experience. Highly recommended.

Es war sehr schön und anders als nur in der Stadt zu fahren. Man muss gut Fahrrad fahren und auch gute Kondition, um lange Distanz mit dem Fahrrad fahren zu können. Wer sucht nach grüne Landschaften und dabei auch Sport machen, empfehle ich sehr diese Ausflug. Ich würde nochmal buchen.

Michael took us to Müggelsee. It was a great experience. Michael is friendly and well organized. He knows his area very well - the itinerary to müggelsee was well chosen - a good combination of nature and exercise. It could not have been better, and there was no Boring part. Michael took our small group off the beaten track. He was also very considerate and adaptive to the needs of his guests.
