Germany's best bike cafés

Germany's best bike cafés

Road Cycling Collection by Martin Donat

Bicycle cafés are becoming more and more popular. And it's with good reason, too: they are a place of relaxation, a place of sweet and sometimes hearty temptations and a place where you can meet like-minded people. An outsourced living room for bicycle fans, a family meeting place and starting point for living out together a passion that goes beyond pure cycling. In order for you to discover the best ones in Germany, I have collected my favourites here.

Whether you visit before or after a ride, Cycling cafés are a great meeting place. Show up a little earlier, enjoy a coffee, talk bikes with other like-minded folk and listen to the barista's tales of biking glory. Then, before you head off, don't forget a slice of cake. The best part about these places is that they're often connected to a bike store or a bicycle workshop, meaning you can get your steed serviced while you enjoy your cappuccino. Have a good trip and bon appétit!

    Fahrradcafé Hannover

    Bike Touring Highlight

    This contact point for all cyclists has been in Hanover since 2015. And by that I really mean everyone! The bicycle café covers the entire spectrum. From folding bikes to city bikes and pedelecs, but also cargo bikes, custom bikes, individual touring bikes and cyclocross bikes are in the range. Service is a top priority: there is a fast service at the bike café, so nobody has to wait long for their bike to be repaired. The immediate service helps when things need to be done even faster, for example a flat tire or something similar. In the shop there are all standard spare parts and many unusual bicycle accessories as well as a large selection of Ortlieb bags and Brooks saddles/grips. And if it takes longer or you just want to enjoy a moment of peace: In the café area you can get all kinds of café specialties and delicious pastries.

    Monaco Velo Club München

    Road Cycling Highlight

    If you want to become a member of the Monaco Velo Club, you need one thing above all: absolute passion for cycling. And ideally also for traditional cycling, for fashionable cycling clothing, a good espresso and, in general, for the Italian lifestyle.

    Just like club boss Heiko Wild, who is fulfilling his lifelong dream here: an exclusive trendy meeting place in the middle of a city that also provides a good setting for the extraordinary. In the Velo Club, nobody just buys something in the sale. Everything has it's price. So it's hardly surprising that the audience is sometimes just as exceptional. Various professionals have already said “Hello”, the end of the coffee bar is even decorated with Alberto Contador's winning bike of the Giro. Old bicycles, signed jerseys, good espresso from a heavy portafilter machine.

    If you have a sense for something special and are hopelessly infected with the cycling virus, you will feel right at home here in the bike boutique in Munich's Au district. In fact, the club is not just a shop, you can actually become a member. Then you enjoy various privileges, such as your own club clothing and preferential participation in club events.

    Steel Vintage Bikes is probably THE Berlin café for all vintage bike fans. Apart from the fact that you can get pretty much everything for your classic bike or your elegantly built fixed gear or city bike in the online shop - you will not be amazed in the showroom with café. There, in front of all the 1a restored racing bikes on the walls, ceilings and in the windows, everything else fades into the background. Whether in the shop area or in the café: the atmosphere is quite unique. There is also good coffee and a small but excellent menu. No wonder it can get pretty crowded here at the weekend.

    By the way, there is now a second café at Augustastraße 91 in Berlin Mitte.

    Eddy Would Attack Nürnberg

    Road Cycling Highlight

    "Eddy would attack" - the name says it all. Anyone who associates “Eddy” directly with racing bike legend Eddy Merckx and thus racing bikes made of steel, gears with levers on the down tube and rim brakes is in good hands per se in this great establishment right in the historic Nuremberg city wall.

    Here you can rant about the good old days, marvel at old, restored bikes or enjoy a delicious cappuccino with freshly baked pastries. Even better: On Sundays, you can even indulge your passion in real life on a joint ride and then end the weekend at the "Lazy Sunday Afternoon" with relaxed music, coffee and cake.

    Brands in the shop include: Cafe du Cycliste, Magliamo, Alberto Fahrradjeans, Thei-Sprint, Fingerscrossed and Gola. Wheels are repaired or restored in the adjoining workshop. And in the café there is a wide range of breakfasts with espresso, cappuccino, cafe latte, chocolate, tea, lemonades, smoothies, croissants, the most delicious cakes, quiches, snacks and much more. If you are looking for something hearty, you can get finely topped Erbl (bread from a local bakery around the corner) from vegan to hearty.

    Velosoph Freising

    Road Cycling Highlight

    The “Velosoph” resides in the city center of Freisingen. The name suggests it: this isn't just any shop, but a piece of life philosophy. Cycling is lived here. Individual advice when buying a bike (Pasculli, Cinelli, 3T, Schindelhauer and Bombtrack) and a good cup of Fairtrade coffee from a portafilter or filter machine are part of the standard programme.

    However, one thing is really important here: cycling itself. Every Saturday you can go for a spin with the boys. In winter, you can go cross-country on a gravel or mountain bike. As soon as the weather improves, a relaxed 2.5 hours will be completed on the racing bike. During the week you can also pedal until your legs burn. Mainly in the bad season, people also train on the roller in the middle of the store. One or the other velosophical discourse will arise of its own accord.

    velosoph-freising.de
    Opening hours:
    Tuesday 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.,
    Wednesday appointments only
    Thursday and Friday 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.,
    Sat. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    Senad Sarac is fascinated by craftsmanship and good quality. He has been collecting antique bicycle parts for years. Everywhere on his travels, Senad discovered wonderful individual parts or entire bicycles in sheds, cellars or at flea markets, all of which have one thing in common: solidly handcrafted and sometimes wonderfully decorated, they have been discarded for many years and often in a deplorable condition in a slumber down. A huge collection of historical individual pieces was created between 1895 and 1970. A unique journey through the history of bikes from complete penny farthings from the early days to Bianchi frames from the 1920s, gear shifts, bells, handlebars, delivery bikes to police bikes, which has seen many a gangster hunt have experienced. Pieces with history that radiate them and make them favorites. Sustainability in a fascinating way that makes every vintage bike fan's heart beat faster is the concept of Le Vélo.

    Not only the original tools from two centuries, all of which are still in use, can be touched and experienced in the showroom on Grosse Brunnenstrasse in Hamburg, but also finished, unique items and intensive advice. Personalization is a matter of the heart here. Every detail is discussed, planned and realized on the customer's request. There is only one authentic Le Vélo bike, because individuality cannot be reproduced. The connection between bike and rider is created by lovingly accompanying the development process.

    In the café you get more than coffee, tea and homemade cakes. Quality and enjoyment come first. You can rent the unique coffee bike for your event. With or without a professional barista.

    Le Vélo is bicycle couture at its best with the inspiring atmosphere of friends for friends.

    "Die Pumpe" is a bicycle workshop in the St. Johannis district of Nuremberg with an attached café where you can enjoy vegan cakes, fair trade coffee and cool drinks on a "pay what you want" basis. On Saturdays you can even lend a hand, because then a workspace in the workshop is reserved for do-it-yourself screwdrivers. "Die Pumpe" is conveniently located for commuters on the cycle path to Fürth and Erlangen and on the Pan-European cycle path between Prague and Paris.

    You can also just come to chat and you are still welcome. The operators of the shop love and live the topic of bicycles and an alternative lifestyle. Here you can get information about the "Ökotopia Bike Tour", the Critical Mass and the latest anti-racism demos in Nuremberg. A tree sponsorship has recently been adopted and we would like to start planting together with our neighbors in the spring. In the future there will also be a reading corner with entertaining bicycle reading material.

    SchraubBar Duisburg

    Road Cycling Highlight

    The SchraubBar is located in the middle of a row of pubs in the Duisburger Eigenstrasse. That gives you an idea: the alternatively founded bicycle workshop in the multicultural district of Duisburg Hochfeld is not a normal bicycle shop and not a normal bike café. The SchraubBar not only serves as a workshop and shop for old restored bikes, but above all as a trendy meeting place for everyone who loves their two-wheeler. Bicycle couriers, racing bike amateurs, BMXers and mountain bikers - all types of cyclists are welcome.

    Once a week, on Wednesday evening, you can screw as much as you can. In addition, events of all kinds take place regularly in the bar. You can listen to concerts or get rid of old stuff at the flea market. When people aren't chatting about wheels over a bottle of beer in the SchraubBar, the area around Eigenstrasse is being explored on two wheels. Alleycats take place regularly, to which every cyclist is welcome.

    schraubbar-hochfeld.de
    Opening times:
    Wed. 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.,
    Sat. 12 noon to 4 p.m.

    Caffé Bicicletta Freiburg

    Road Cycling Highlight

    The Freiburg bike café "Caffé Bicicletta", located close to the city centre, combines two passions of the former bike courier Martin Allmendinger: classic steel bicycles and high-quality Italian coffee.

    But that's not all. In the classic and stylishly furnished shop on Brombergstrasse, you can not only enjoy a coffee while talking shop, but also snack on delicious desserts, sip on organic lemonade, enjoy fresh (pre-ordered) burgers or even consume your own food. Bike repairs are carried out in the workshop and the shop has a small but fine selection of classic steel frames from Ciöcc and Cinelli, for example.

    Regular highlights are cultural evening events ranging from readings to relaxed jazz sessions. Incidentally, the Freiburg bike courier RadsFatz is attached to the café. So if you ever have to send something, just bring it by bike and stay for a coffee.

    caffe-bicicletta.com
    Opening hours:
    Tuesday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
    Sat. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,

    Not so long ago, Wuppertal was considered one of the least bicycle-friendly cities in Germany. Recently, however, the city in the Bergisches Land has become increasingly popular among cyclists. The main reason for this is the Nordbahntrasse, a railway line recultivated as a cycle path, which meanders "over the roofs" of the long city from Vohwinkel to Sprockhövel.

    One of the heart of the route, the Mirke train station, is located at the height of the Elberfeld district. The listed building is the cultural center of Nordstadt and provides a home for many colorful projects. Café Hutmacher is located in this old station building. Here you can take a leisurely break inside and outside in good weather. In addition to coffee and cake, there are delicious snacks from the stone oven or from the grill from spring to autumn. If you would rather have a beer with the tarte flambée from the oven, you are well advised to try the house beer "Bärtig Bräu". Sustainability is very important here. Whether it's coffee, soda or beer, care is taken to ensure that everything is produced fairly and locally.

    The whole thing is rounded off by numerous events such as readings, concerts or design markets, which mainly take place at the station on weekends. If you don't have your own bike, Mirke train station is also a good starting point for you. It is easily accessible by public transport and offers free bike rental. For a small deposit you can start cycling from there.
