BikeWerkstatt where you can repair your own bike with a little help?
Posted August 2nd, 2013 - 9:01 am by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Hey all,

I'm looking for a bike repair place where I can fix my bike myself, but with some assistance from an expert.

In Belgium there was a place like that. You paid 5€ as a basis and worked on your own bike. Every new accessory you needed (light bulb, brakes, etc.) was charged at the original wholesaler's price.

There must be something like this in Berlin, no?

Any advice would be great!

Thanks,

Hannah

Google Tauschring Berlin and Repair Cafe Berlin. Read about the initiatives and maybe they can help you.

The idea of Tauschring and Repair Cafe is known also in other German cities.

Tauschring - annually you pay a fee of about 5 Euro and it is services exchange, eg. somebody fixes your bike and you do something in exchange, eg. bake a cake, translate something.

Repair Cafe - once a month there is a meeting and people come with things to repair. There are DIY experts and Jacks-of-all-trades help others. Payment - a small donation.
