FAQ
Expand all
What happens if it rains?
  • The tours run rain or shine. The tours in the rain can be a different kind of fun and an even more fun memory! The guides try their best to take cover but sometimes you will be exposed to the elements. Pocket-sized rain ponchos are for sale in the shop and it is highly recommend that you purchase one before the tour. If you don’t use it, the shop will buy it back from you - it's a bit of a rain insurance policy!
Do we go inside the Berlin museums and monuments?
  • The tour guides cannot enter the Berlin museums and monuments. German Law restricts museum guides to their authorized officials. Plus, some people would want to spend only ten minutes in the museum while others would prefer 3 hours. Your guide, and the shop staff, will be happy to show you exactly how to go back to any sites you would like to explore further or visit the interior. This applies to all bike and segway tours except Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin. This tour includes entrance tickets and audio-guide of Cecilienhof Palace in Potsdam.
Do I need to bring anything with me for the Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin with Cecilienhof Palace?
  • Be sure to bring your camera and some cash for the lunch break. It is also recommended that you bring an extra layer of clothing in case it gets chilly during the tour. There is a luggage rack on the e-bikes so you can easily carry some small items with you.
Do we stop for lunch on the Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin with Cecilienhof Palace?
  • Yes, you will make a stop for lunch during the bike tour. Please remember that the cost of food is not included in the tour price, so make sure to have some cash with you.
Is Potsdam as flat as Berlin?
  • Almost. Berlin is great for cycling in large part because it is so flat. While a large portion of the cycling on the Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin with Cecilienhof Palace is done in parks and very quiet streets, there are some inclines along the route. None of the inclines are cause for concern as the tour moves at a very relaxed pace and the small hills we do encounter are very short- you probably won’t even notice
Do we bike all the way from Berlin to Potsdam?
  • No, after meeting in Alexanderplatz (near Berlin TV Tower) you will travel together with the tour guide on the train to Potsdam. The bikes will be stationed and ready for you! Once there, the tour will start on bikes and you are right into cycling through the beauty of Potsdam.
Is the Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin with Cecilienhof Palace for children?
  • The tour guides love having families and children on tour. There are several types of kids' bikes, seats, and helmets to make sure everyone of all sizes is comfortable on the bike tour. The Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour from Berlin is a bit longer of a ride and a longer tour day than our other bike tours, so please consider whether this longer activity is right for your kids.
What if I haven't ridden a bike for a while? Can I continue to join the bike tour?
  • Don’t worry, it’s just like riding a bike! The tours move at a very comfortable pace so don’t worry if you are a bit rusty. If you are worried about being comfortable on the bike, feel free to stop by the shop a bit early and you can take a few practice laps.
Do we go inside Cecilienhof Palace?
  • Yes. You will enter Cecilienhof Palace where you will participate with a great informative audio-guided tour. The guides cannot, however, enter other monuments because German Law restricts museum guides to their authorized officials. Plus, some people would want to spend only ten minutes in the museum while others would prefer 3 hours.
