About the race
The essential European city to visit right now for fashion, art, design and music, perhaps the best vantage point to take in the ‘eternally unfinished’ Berlin is from the glass-roofed Reichstag. But remember to get a feel for life in old East Berlin in the DDR museum and walk the Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery. Getting around by bike is easy – from the market stalls in Mauer Park to the boutiques of North Mitte. Eat like the locals and try a bratwurst while watching the local football team, Herta BSC, at the Olympic Stadium in Charlottenberg.
