June 6, 2019
The European Bicycle Route R1 has the makings of a real adventure: It is 4,500 kilometers long, leads through eleven countries and four time zones, from London to Helsinki. He combines metropolises in the most beautiful way of all: on the bike. One of the absolute highlights on the R1 route is the drive through Berlin. On this section, you will cycle from Treptower Park to Erkner and get as close to Berlin as you have never been before.You start under the mighty plane trees of the Puschkinallee in Treptower Park and cycle past the Soviet Memorial. An exciting mix of history and nostalgia awaits you in the adjoining Plänterwald, where you pass the former amusement park, the "Spreepark", and through the fence you can take a look at the slow-moving rides that once entertained the inhabitants of East Berlin.A colorful, urban atmosphere accompanies you on the way. The view of the Spree, beach bars with happy music and cozy allotments - a side of Berlin, you experience the bike close up while you roll over well paved bike paths. The further you follow the route, the quieter it becomes, until you finally roll through a heathland that leads you to Müggelsee. At the latest on the shores of the lake, you should treat yourself to a little break!Continue through mixed forest you reach over a boardwalk in the channel-rich, rich in bridges district Hessenwinkel, also called New Venice. Now it is not far to Erkner, the end point of the Berlin leg of the R1. From here you can easily return by S-Bahn.
