If I fancy a bike tour through Berlin, the Westhafen is definitely one of my favourite sights to behold. It is Berlin’s biggest and oldest port, and connects the city via its rivers Havel and Spree with other trading centers.
Built in the 1920s, nearly completely destroyed during WW II, today, the Westhafen shines as if it has been there forever. The best part is, you can go through it by bike and even see the heavy cranes in action, if you are lucky. From there, it is only a stone’s throw away to the city center’s beautiful attractions like Friedrichsstraße and Brandenburger Tor.
If you just want to visit on a short stay, you can get onto the Ringbahn, which also stops at Westhafen. The canals around the Westhafen are an insider tip for anglers, by the way. If you go there right now, you might catch one of those fantastic sundowns that make autumn in Berlin so special.
