Right in the heart of Berlin, this relaxed round tour awaits you with a good portion of sightseeing, a good shot of history and a lot of nature along the way. And by the way you can stop off in the best Berlin way.It starts at the Steigenberger Hotel and you have already arrived in the western center of the capital. Still proud, but not hiding the ravages of time, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church rises in front of you - a memorial against the war and a symbol of the city. Just a few steps further you will arrive at the Berlin Zoo. The short distance allows you a flying visit to the most biodiverse zoo in the world with more than 17,000 animals.Past the zoo area, you cycle over the Landwehr Canal past the rustic Schleusenkrug. At the lock passage you get nice beer and small snacks. If you like it a little more upscale and with a Bavarian touch, just roll on to the Café am Neuen See. With an unbelievable amount of green on all sides, you cross the zoo to the Victory Column, which is already visible from afar and which stretches majestically into the sky.The tree-lined Straße des 17. Juni continues to other Berlin highlights from very different eras: the famous Brandenburg Gate and the modern Potsdamer Platz with its modern glass fronts. You cross the Landwehr Canal again and cycle along busy roads back to the starting point of the varied tour.
