Cycling the Berliner Mauerweg (Berlin Wall Path) has been on my To Do List for ages! I finally managed to complete the whole path in a single day and it was well worth it. Starting (and ending) in central Berlin, passing along waterways and along fields – the varied terrain and sights were fantastic. But also a reminder of how West Berlin was surrounded by a huge concrete wall and that many East Berliners risked their lives to cross that border.
Here is the first of two recaps of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel looking into the whys and hows. Plus some best and worst ofs after I completed the 59 Stages!
The second NinJa Cycles tour took place in the beautiful Harz region in central Germany. We were joined by Nadja’s cousin and her boyfriend for a fantastic tour through the Harz National Park, historic towns and even a sight of the steam Brockenbahn (Brocken Train).
This is first edition of a new series – NinJa Cycles – where Nadja and I head out to explore together! NinJa is our couple name by the way. In this ride, we went to the lovely Falkenhagener See and explored the Spandauer Forst around Eiskeller in Spandau.
