Berlin is a gigantic open-air museum of industrial heritage. And since it can best be explored by bike, we recommend these five loops. Each one is about 20 to 25 kilometers long, and each will take you on beautiful paths to truly stunning places off the beaten track. Ideally you should set aside an entire day for each route. That way you’ll be able to savor the imposing architecture, hidden destinations, and exciting history of the city. Along the way you can take a break at restaurants and cafés with an industrial heritage flair.
