How to get to Berlin

by plane

There are two big airports in Berlin – Tegel and Schönefeld. Please check http://www.berlin-airport.de/EN for information.


Tegel (TXL) is situated close by the city centre. It is a convenient, recently revamped, passenger-friendly airport with easy-reach services. You will find it a breeze to make your way to the Public Transport connections which will take you into town. City and transport maps are available at the Airport's Tourist Information Centre from Berlin Tourismus Marketing. To get into central Berlin you can take the bus lines 109, 128, X9 or TXL. Bus connections to the underground and Zoo Station (centrally located near the Ku'damm area) are situated just outside the airport terminal. A Taxi ride to Central Berlin (East or West) will cost about  15 to 17 €.


Schönefeld (SXF) is situated approximately 18 km south-east of the city centre. The easiest way to get into town is by Airport Express which takes you to Zoologischer Garten station in around 30 minutes (stops Ostbahnhof, Alexanderplatz, Friedrichstraße and Hauptbahnhof). Other alternatives are the S-Bahn (surface rail) or U-Bahn (subway). When choosing the S-Bahn take line S9 to Ostkreuz and change there to any west-bound S-Bahn to get to the same stations as the Airport Express (and all other stops in between). For the U-Bahn option take Bus 171 to Rudow and change there to U-Bahn U7. To get to Zoologischer Garten, change to U9 at Berliner Straße station.

 

On selected dates we offer a registration service at the airports. Check our Airport Registration Service for further information.

by train

 

Berlin Hauptbahnhof is Berlin's rather new central station. All ICEs (Inter City Express trains) stop here. The best connection to and from the station is the S-Bahn, leaving at the top level of the station.

West-bound trains take you to Charlottenburg, the area around the conference site (e.g., Zoologischer Garten), and east-bound trains take you to Mitte (e.g., Friedrichstraße or Alexanderplatz).

 

Before reaching Hauptbahnhof, the trains usually stop at either Spandau or Südkreuz, and many trains continue to Ostbahnhof after Hauptbahnhof.

Spandau is connected via S-Bahn and subway U7. Places in the Charlottenburg area are often reached faster from Spandau than from Hauptbahnhof, e.g., S Charlottenburg or U Bismarckstraße.

Südkreuz is connected via the S-Bahn circle line.

Ostbahnhof lies at the same S-Bahn line as Hauptbahnhof, just being located further east.
