I am moving to Berlin for a month or two and I was wandering if there is anything worth bringing the mtb? Like something with at least some descent - 200-300m. I am totally not interested in flat cross country opportunities (:
Anything rideable around Berlin?
If there is anywhere this side of Bonneville Salt Flats flatter than Berlin I've not been there. However it's a great city and a couple of months there will be a fantastic experience.
None that I can remember but we didnt explore that far out of the city. It looked like it was very fixie-centric and there are a few fixie shop/cafes opposite the East Side Gallery on the south side of the Spree, there is a velodrome in Berlin too but I dont know if they do public sessions though I'd be surprised if they didnt. None of which I acknowledge answers your question!...
Well, it can be a few miles out of city, but still doable in a day with train. Kind of like Surry Hills or Aston Hill around London... There isn't much English info and my German is zero (yet).Posted 2 years ago #
Unfortunately Berlin is almost completely flat. The only hills are the ones made by the destroyed houses from the WW2 bombing. There is however a huge forest to the south west of the city and lots of lakes. The nearest real mountains are the Harz mountains which you could reach in 2 hours by car/train from Berlin. Look up Brocken mountain or Braunlage. To the south east a few hours away is the Zittau Mountains I was here a few weeks ago and met quite a few MTBers from Berlin who drove over for the day even though it must have been a four hour drive.Posted 2 years ago #
