I visited the three tallest structures in Berlin during the final Stage of the Tour de Tall. All three were built to transmit radio/TV signals and built when Berlin was divided, which played a role in their final states. I mainly cycled through the lush forests of Berlin before the final stop in central Berlin where loads of people were enjoying the sun.
Tour De Tall
The penultimate Stage of the Tour de Tall took me to the extreme north and south of Berlin on the hunt for the 7th to the 4th tallest structures of Berlin. The structures were all related to power generation – mainly stacks from natural gas power plants but also impressive wind turbines. This was a fantastic cycle in Berlin with ideal conditions.
The second Stage of the Tour de Tall was more zig-zagging across Berlin to visit the twelfth to the eighth tallest structures. More impressive stacks from power plants and an Eiffel Tower imitation .. I mean .. inspiration, plus a bonus spaceship.
The Tour de Tall consists of four separate Stages visiting the 17 highest structures in Berlin in ascending order. This first Stage zig-zagged through central Berlin to reach the five “shortest” structures – all stacks from different power plants. This was a lovely ride in the sun and I could even visit Nadja and the cats for lunch.
