Excellent service and fine bikes, baskets, locks, helmets. All at good price. Fewer e-bikes than we would have preferred, but the area around Potsdam is mostly flat, so that is hardly a problem. Around back of the Hauptbahnhof on Babelsberger. Google maps has incorrect route as of May 2023.

Had fun learning to ride an E bike. Easy biking, one can experience what it’s like to bike in Europe with bike lanes and paths. It gets you out and about and off buses, so the air is cleaner. Even though some of the roads were pretty rough with cobblestone and potholes, it was fun riding by houses, and to all of the sites in Pottstown that we wanted to see. It was also fun to be out there with the locals with their children. It made the day more exciting.

Potsdam is a cycling-friendly town. Even if your experience with bikes is moderate, you will see that cycling around Potsdam is safe and easy.

This bike rentals has a convenient location: at the Main train station take the exit Babelsberger Straße and it will be on the lift-hand side.

The price for the bike/per day 11 €. If you have “Berlin welcome card” - 8 €. It’s also cheaper (8€) if to rent it after 2pm.

I would recommend to book it in advance or to come early, especially if you are coming as a group.

Map of the cycling route will be provided.

Thank you for your review! We also run a paddling station at Potsdam Griebnitzsee-Station. When you come next time it's worth to see Potsdam also from the waterfront.

When visiting Berlin, there can be few better ways to spend a sunny day than cycling around Potsdam. It is an exceptionally beautiful place and a favourite leisure retreat for locals. When you read about it, it sounds like it is all about baroque palaces and ther are lots if you are into that stuff. But as far as I am concerned, by far the main appeal is just cruising along on miles of good bike paths through absolutely lovely surroundings of parks and waterways. Ther are hundreds of appealing cafes and restaurants along the way to stop at, most in outdoor settings.

You can join an organised tour from Berlin if you want but I think it is better just to hire a bike when you arrive at Potsdam station. Get an audio guide as well if you want info on the palaces but you don,t need one much. You get a little map from the bike hire place but it would be good to get a better one if you can because it can be slightly tricky to stay on the right path in a couple of places.

Don't worry about the distance. We are both over 60 and not regular cyclists and we got around pretty easily. No need to hurry.

The advantage of not being in a tour –apart from being much cheaper - is that you can go which way you like and stop where and when you like. And there are so many appealing places to stop. On the other hand you do not have to go into any places ,that don't interest you, which you may have paid for on a tour. See one pompous over-formal baroque palace, no need to see more, is my view.

Apart from the great outdoors, the one thing you should not miss is the famous "Bridge of Spies".

But pay attention to the size of the bike and the comfort of the saddle otherwise the end of your day will bring good memories for your bottom. The long tour is worth the effort but download the Postdam audio guide on your iPhone (only) before the ride for enjoying additional information during the ride.

Potsdam is the easiest place to ride a bicycle, since there is a bike lane at almost all places. You can rent a bike for about 10€ and ride your way around the idyllic parks of Potsdam. Totally recommended!

I did this tour by bus but the bike is much more fun.
Get the audio and listen to the tour guide you.
The guys at the train station are friendly and the rental Is half price after 2pm.
Worth the effort. Make sure to get there early as they only have a limited number of bikes.

We had a wonderful day hiring a tandem bicycle for e pedal around Potsdam. We hired audi guides and set off to take in the scenery, history and palaces. It was an easy ride and we were able to stop when and where we wanted and take whatever time we wanted. It took us five hours but I wish we had allowed more time. The ride was on flat ground most of the way and for a couple of 66 year olds it was comfortable. The audio guides worked well but the map we had was a little inaccurate which was not much of a problem when we got off track a couple of times With the chain lock provided it was quite safe to leave our machine and wander through the places we wanted to see. Great fun. Would recommend it to anyone who can ride a bicycle.

Thank you for the report. Yes you are right, there is one point, where the map is not more up to date, because of way changes in Park Babelsberg. We have to sign it.

Excellent day spent cycling round Potsdam. We downloaded the audio tour from the map given and it took us to fantastic sights with key information along the way. Fairly flat roads but did feel like we'd had a days exercise too. Highly recommended.

We are a family of four, not trained cyclists.
We reached the Griebnitzsee train station (one after Wannsee), and rented our bikes there. The service was amiable, the bikes worked great, and the provided map took us all around the Wannsee island - including the known villas, a restaurant, and the beautiful scenery. Highly and heartily recommended.
One more tip: at the exit from the train station, you will find a sweet little café, with great home baked cakes and excellent excellent coffee.
