Your first venture begins at the Brandenburger Gate and follows the path of the former Berlin Wall. Take time to enjoy the sights in the Berlin city centre before continuing the tour to the square, ‘Potsdamer Platz’. Cycle on to the former border control Checkpoint Charlie, where you may want to visit the Border Museum. From there, follow the path of the former Wall alongside the city district of Kreuzberg, over the Spree, to the Ostbahnhof. Here you will find a remnant of the Berlin wall, called the The East Side Gallery, which has been transformed into a wall of art by various artists. Follow the Wall to Treptow.
