Berlin is a bicycle friendly city. Cycling is very popular, helped by the flat terrain and myriad of urban parks full of paths. While Berlin does not have a public bike rental program on the same scale as the Velib in Paris, it does have a similar but smaller scale private option and other bike rental and tour companies with many locations. Many hotels in Berlin also rent bikes to their guests. Some even loan them for free.


nextbike is a company that offers a bicycle rental program with docking stations at various points throughout the city. It is also the least expensive rental option available. To use the service you must first register and pay a 9 € deposit which is credited towards your rental.

The basic rental rate is 1 € for each 15 minutes or portion thereof to a maximum of 15 € per 24 hours. Bikes can be rented via a phone call or by using the companies app on your smartphone.

You can purchase a day pass for 3 € which includes 30 minutes of rental followed by 1 € for each additional 30 minutes.
