‘Grandma's apple pie is the best!’ Well, we can all confirm that. The fresher the ingredients, the more delicious it tastes. But above all, two things make homemade treats very special – passion and attention to detail. Equally as much passion goes into the fruity jams, creamy cheeses, home-grown asparagus and crunchy vegetables that you can buy in one of the many farm shops around Berlin. So why not combine a sporty cycle ride or a relaxed family outing with a little shopping trip to Brandenburg's farms?
With our eight circular Tours, we take you to very unusual farm shops that, following a green travel theme, you can reach by bike from the end of an S-Bahn line. You can take your bicycle on the S-Bahn without any problems – it only gets crowded at rush hour. For almost all Tours, we’ve selected a bike rental service at the destination station, so you can even arrive without a bike. If you prefer to bring your own, remember to buy an additional ticket for it.
But now it's time to go on Tour: Ride to the smoked eel at Müggelsee,visit the petting zoo in Strausberg with the whole family, head to Diedersdorf for the cherry blossom and asparagus harvest, or collect kilometres on the hunt for the best organic milk products You're sure to find the right foodie adventure for you here. The area around Klosterfelde is known for mustard with currants. If you prefer to hunt for the best berries yourself, then head to the town of Falkensee. You’re guaranteed to fill up a whole basket if you go picking yourself!
During the pandemic, our Tour suggestions are one thing above all: wonderful inspiration for hikes and bike adventures in the near future, when everyday restrictions are less severe. Please continue to stay healthy, protect yourself and other people. Avoid any unnecessary travel and please observe any local distance and hygiene rules if the desire for fresh air does lure you out on our Tours. At the time of writing, FFP2 masks are compulsory in the Berlin S-Bahn.

Milk perks you up - you can also make good use of it on your trip to the Transparent Dairy with its attached farm shop. With around 65 kilometers you have a nice day tour ahead of you that will take you far out of the big city to just before the Spreewald. Lush lakes and shady forest paths are an absolute pleasure, especially in summer.
Oven-warm cakes, creamy cheese, fresh eggs - sometimes it's not just the journey that is the goal. On the extended round tour you not only immerse yourself in fragrant forest areas and you can dare to jump into the wonderfully clear Liepnitzsee. On the way there is a unique farm café for a break and a visit to the farm shop near Danewitz guarantees you full bike bags with regional delicacies.
