Berlin by bike: the Berlin Wall on its 30th anniversary of the fall

The Berlin Wall, erected in 1961 to separate West Berlin from the territory of the German Democratic Republic, is one of the most extraordinary historical landmarks in Europe. Accompanying it is the Berlin Wall Trail (Berliner Mauerweg), a tourist route designated for pedestrians and cyclists, spanning over 160 kilometers and ranking as one of the most unique tourist attractions in Europe. The 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 2019 served as inspiration for our group to visit Berlin. Over a long weekend in May, we cycled around Berlin, delved into a part of the contemporary history of the German capital, and explored several of Berlin's major attractions.
