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:... More

Perfect to spend your weekend away from the city. Good kayaks or canoes to rent for a convenient price. Beautiful landscape and historical buildings. You can paddle below the Glieneke Bridge of spies, where the USA and USSR used to exchange imprisoned spies during the cold war (Bridge of spies, movie with Tom Hanks). For expereicned kayakers: If you want... More

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!

This is a very versatile and friendly bike service offering every kind of bike for children and adults.The bikes are reasonably priced and available for the day, the week, or longer. Right on the station platform, you can't miss it. A large shopping mall has grown up around the train station. Try to get out of there if you have... More

Bicycle riding is a good way to get around Potsdam but you are not allowed to ride in the parks which is a shame. Navigating some of the bike tracks can be a bit tricky and we missed a turn and ended up a long way off track. The audio guide was not worth getting.

Just 40 mins from Potsdamer Platz in the heart of Berlin, we arrived at Greibnitzsee, hired three boards from the office in the S-Bahn station and were on the water within 100m from the exit. A beautiful way to see Berlin's suburbs on the water. Wet-suits are available to rent. The whole thing was super easy and hassle-free. They have... More

Because we did not want to coordinate schedules with an official tour guide, we decided we would rent bikes with audio tours (as suggested in Pedales' brochure) and go at our own pace. Unfortunately when we arrived at the station at 11am, the attendant at the bike corral curtly told us "You are too late; the headsets are all taken."... More

If you want to get to know Potsdam you should do it by bicycle - pedales is great - the tour was outstanding - try the birkenlimonade at the russian quarter br Gernot

The bike seat quick release did not work, the basket was also unstable and hindered . Also, when asking if bikes could be returned at other locations, I was told Yes with no mention of a surcharge costing more than 20% of the rental myself.
