Sightseeing on a bike is an activity for people who enjoy biking and seeing interesting sites.
Berlin is full of quirky unusual places that add charm to the city.
A Cold War relic lies abandoned on top of a mountain made of rubble. Teufelsberg, literally ‘Devil's Mountain,’ a hill reaching 120.1 meters above sea-level, made from an estimated 12 million cubic meters of war rubble (apparently about 400,000 bombed houses) pushed together in the north of the Grunewald forest in West Berlin. Perched atop this (wo)man-made mound now sits the old abandoned listening or intelligence-gathering station used during the Cold War.

The trip will start from Berlin Hauptbahnhof. Exit the station towards the Invalidenstraße and cross it.

After riding bikes for 17 km mostly on bike roads along the water with nice views we will reach the Teufelsberg before noon.
From what I have gathered, the site opens at noon and you can buy a ticket for 5 euro to walk around and see the art. After the tour we will bike to one of the close by restaurants in Grunwald for a lunch.

After that you will have two options: take S-Bauhn (S Messe Süd (Berlin)) or ride bike back and make it a longer trip.
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.
