    Kirschblütenweg Bornholmer Straße

    Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)

    Kirschbaumallee is a section of the Berlin Wall Trail near the former Bornholmer Strasse border crossing. Out of joy at the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, Japanese citizens donated these cherry trees in a generous fundraising campaign, which were planted in various places in and around Berlin. There are now over 10,000.

    One would not believe that this place lies in the spring in the middle of the urban jungle of Berlin.

    A place that invites you to linger with its numerous park benches.

    There are numerous bike racks ready for that.

    Or you just drive along the bike path and enjoy the view.
