Use a Berlin hostel as your base for a city bike tour
Those who are more comfortable on two wheels than four or even walking, might like to hire a bike and explore the German capital city.

Caroline Bock, writing for the Sun Daily, recommends seeing the area by using this form of transport, but it may be a good idea to have a Berlin hostel to rest in afterwards.

Ms Bock advises travellers to check out the Poor but Sexy tour, which is named after Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit once described the city using those words.

The four-hour experience will set visitors back US$15 (£9.64) and is 18km long, taking in Viktoria Park in the district of Kreuzberg and venturing along the Bergmannstrasse, which features an array of shops.

Individuals with an eye for a bargain may like to set up camp near this area by booking a cheap hotel in Berlin and save the excess money for spending.

Those who want to use these reserves on beer might like to enjoy one on the Admiral Bridge, which is the next stop of the tour.

And afterwards the tour group, led by guide Robert Muller, will be informed about the changes in the city in the 20 years since the Berlin wall fell in the districts of Treptow and Friedrichshain.

Moreover, people who are not sure whether to say in a hostel in Berlin should be aware that Klaus Lohmann, UK & Ireland director for the German National Tourist Office, recently praised the majority of this type of accommodation in the city, saying they are of a decent quality.
