After that you will have two options: take S-Bauhn or U-Bahn back home, or ride bike back and make it a longer trip.

We are going to ride along the river mostly on paved bike roads for 17km to reach the citadel. While this is not a sport activity you need to have a bike in a good order and be comfortable spending Protected content on it. Don't forget to take water.
