There isn't a time in Berlin, when you can't a spot a bicycle on the roads. The city has taken biking seriously, with dedicated bike lanes and separate bike paths throughout the city. Stand at any intersection during rush hour and you could clearly see bicycles outnumber all other vehicles combined. Next to walking, bicycles are a great way to explore the city for a traveler. Bicycles are also available for rent all over the city, from big hotels to corner coffee shops. The lowest price I saw was €8 per day and highest was €12 at a hotel. With Berlin's many landmarks in close vicinity, you can save yourself the taxi cost by renting a bike, and enjoy the freedom it brings with it.
