What you'll do

The way to explore Berlin is on a bike like the locals as the city is flat and easy to cover thus we begin our tour at Oranienplatz in front of the Orania hotel in the heart of the"multi kulti" Kreuzberg ( Berlin's Soho). We'll start by an introduction into the once working class neighbourhood but now a vibrant area of immigrants, artists and creative people alike of different ethnic backgrounds, who frequent the bars and cafés there. We ride through the neighbourhood and make our way to Tempelhof airport, Berlin’s now closed historical (Nazi) airport for a bit of history and ride on one of the closed runways. Visit my favourite food market, a hidden gem in a small side street known to the locals but otherwise not visible to most. We'll stop there for a bite or/and explore the market. Next we ride through Görlitzer Park, Berlin's infamous alternative park and I'll give a bit of it's history meanwhile. Then we'll slide into Treptower Park, one of Berlin's nicest parks and visit the largest Soviet War Memorial outside Russia and ride by the river Spree that makes it's way through Berlin so beautifully leading us to the East Side Gallery ( Berlin Wall Murals ) as we make our way back. This is; My Berlin or they way I love the city hence I'm sure it will leave you with a taste of what authentic Berlin feels like and where Berliners, nomads and expats alike spend their time/ life

Hi, I’m Thor an adventurous Icelander who lives in Berlin. Founder of Berlin101 Tours and former GM. of 101 hotel Reykjavík. I first came to Berlin in 1991 and lived here in the mid nineties that made a lasting impression on me. I kept close ties with the city and have seen it change for the past 23 years after having lived in Prenzlauer Berg, now one of Berlin's trendy hotspots. As I love this "wild" creative city that Berlin is and being a world traveler, decided to move back here in 2017. I've been hosting both friends, family and guests for a while in the “multi kulti” Kreuzberg and taking them around as I enjoy being of service to people thus after seeing my guests become enlightened by me taking them around I decided to make my very own special tour which I call; The Alternative Berlin Bike Tour or the other side of Berlin.

Fantastische trip door Berlijn! We waren al een aantal dagen in Berlijn en nog was alles wat Thor ons liet zien nieuw. Thor heeft een ontzettende uitgebreide kennis van heel Berlijn en verteld vol passie. Absolute aanrader!

I would really suggest this tour! You visit a lot of nice places that you wouldn’t have find by your own. Furthermore, Thor is really flexible. Especially when the group is not that big, you can do suggestions by yourself and decide how long to stay at every stop.

Thor gave us a fantastic tour around Kreuzberg and all of the locations. We went to a fun food market, and abandoned airport and cycled around beautiful parts of the city. Katie and I had a wonderful day out for my birthday

Do Thor’s tour, it’s excellent! Thor is knowledgeable and passionate about Berlin. We learned so much and saw parts of Berlin we would never have known about or thought to explore on our own. A wonderful blend of biking around the city and learning about Berlin. Highly recommended!

Thor was a legend. Amazing tour of Berlin, we learnt so much about the history, Culture and personal stories too. Although the tour was very long (almost 5 hours - great value for money!) we were never tired or bored. Felt very relaxed and included by Thor as he was so friendly and made sure we were safe and keeping up on the bikes! Thoroughly recommended this tour to everyone.

Riding with Thor was a really cool experience! We saw lots of great places I probably wouldn’t have explored on my own. Even though I’m german I learned many new things about Berlin and you could really feel how passionate Thor is about his hometown!
