Bike Touring Highlight
The Straße des 17. Juni is part of the large east-west axis in Berlin and part of the federal highways 2 and 5. The street is located in the districts Tiergarten and Charlottenburg. It is dedicated to the commemoration of the popular uprising in the GDR in 1953. As a further memorial to the German unit was west of the then junction of the road of June 17 with the Relief Street (now Yitzhak-Rabin Street) near the Soviet Memorial immediately after the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, a three-meter-long wall memorial the Board of Trustees formed indivisible Germany.
Right on the bike path.
Accessible at any time.

Direct connection between Ernst-Reuther-Platz to the Brandenburg Gate. Although a busy road but there is in return also a useful bicycle strip. And last but not least, there are views of some of Berlin's most important sights, including the Victory Column and the Great Soviet War Memorial. Small detail: the row of lanterns left and right of the street dates back to the time of National Socialism and was designed by Albert Speer.

In fact, it is only worthwhile to cycle here by bike. Otherwise, I recommend the Bremer Weg, which runs parallel in the Tiergarten, is much quieter and nicer through the Tiergarten (only partially paved, otherwise good gravel surface) and above all without loud and heavy traffic right next to it. The Straße des 17. Juni (or the Bremer Weg next to it) is part of the most popular east-west connection in Berlin.
