A lot of people are looking for a nice family bike rental in Berlin for their stay in the German capital. Berlin is a city that is easily discovered by bike. There are a number of reasons for that. First of all, Berlin is quite flat. That makes it easy for adults and children alike to ride bikes throughout the city to get to all the sights and places to visit.
Secondly, Berlin has a lot of bike paths that makes it a great city for a family bike rental. If your kids are already riding their own bikes, you do not have to worry about them sharing the streets with all the cars. Instead, the whole family can safeley cycle on the specially designated bike lanes. Although lately, some new bike lanes are now directly on the streets, they are clearly marked and Berlin car drivers very much respect them. Most bike paths are still part of the side walk, so you and your family have a physical distance from the street.
Why else do tourists get their bikes from a family bike rental in Berlin? By bike, they are much faster than on foot. They are independent of the public transport system. And especially for short distances like going from one sight to the next it is the most direct and enjoyable way. Just take your bike from where you are and leave it again whereever you want to get to. No parking, no tickets, no getting to the next bus stop.
What do you actually mean by family bike rental?
We are convinced cyclists. We are neither fanatically green nor uber-ambitiously sportive. We just think that riding a bike in Berlin is the absolute best way to get around. Therefore, we also take our families by bike. If the children are still young and the distances too great, we take them by family cargo bike. The children can sit back and relax while we get some healthy exercise. Alternatively, the children can sit in a trailer attached to the rear axle of a normal bike. Not a lot of family bike rentals that call themselves family-friendly offer these solutions to take young kids with you.
When the children are older, they can ride their own bikes. Some family bike rentals in Berlin do offer kids bikes, but most of them only have bikes for teenagers. Not for under 10 year old kids though.
With our family bike rental we want to close that gap and offer rides for families with kids of all ages. Our family bike rental offers family cargo bikes to take one or two kids aged 1-6 with you. If you prefer the feeling of riding a regular bike, but still want to give the kids a comfortable place to come with you, we offer to rent a trailer. To be a real family bike rental, we of course also offer bikes for kids of all ages. Of course, we have bikes for the parents as well.
