How to Bike or Hike the Berlin Wall
The Berlin Wall Trail runs through the city, the suburban area and the country. Much of it tracks the former patrol roads used on one side by the West German custom officers and on the other by GDR border patrols. The trail is divided into 14 parts, varying from 7- to 21-kilometers in length, so it's easy to plan a bike ride or a walk along one section. (The beginning and end of each section is reachable by public transportation.) Along the Berlin Wall Trail there are more than 40 stations where you can learn about the turbulent years when Germany was divided into East and West, and the building and the tearing down of the wall.
