Coming to Berlin by plane

Berlin offers two airports which both are accessable with the public transport system very easly.

Schönefeld Airport (SXF)
is situated in the southeast of Berlin, approximately 18 km from the city centre. The airport is connected with the city centre by the S-Bahn (suburban train) lines S45 and S9 as well as with several AirportExpress trains that run from/to Hauptbahnhof, Zoologischer Garten, Friedrichstraße, Alexanderplatz and Ostbahnhof every half an hour. S45 and S9 need about 45 minutes for the trip to the centre, the trains take 15 min (from/to Ostbahnhof) to 30 min (from/to Hauptbahnhof), 35 min (from/to Zoologischer Garten). All trains and the S-Bahn stop at the station "Flughafen Berlin-Schönefeld".

Tegel Airport (TXL)
is situated in the northwest of Berlin, approximately 8 km from the city-centre. You can reach the western city centre from the airport conveniently within 15 minutes.
Apart from the buses 109 and 128 the JetExpressBus TXL connects the airport to the main train station Hauptbahnhof. The Expressbus X9 leaves from the train station Zoologischer Garten. The Expressbuses stop only at the main bus stops and are therefore a quick connection.

The bus, undergound or S-Bahn ticket costs 2.70 € (fair zone AB), or 3.30 € for trips to the surroundings (fair zone ABC, required for Schönefeld Airport).

Arrival by Train
You can reach Berlin from all directions by using the fast InterCityExpress-, InterCity-, EuroCity- and InterRegio Trains. The central station Berlin Hauptbahnhof in the heart of Berlin was opened in 2006 and a new concept for the railways and stations in Berlin was installed. All train stations are well connected to the public transport system.

By car
Often the first sights you see when you get to Berlin are the AVUS, television tower and ICC International Congress Centre. But since 2008, there’s been a new approach to the German capital – the new A113 from Berlin's south-east. A completely new in-road into the city, it takes you past high-tech Adlershof and the world of film and TV at the Mediaspree centre. But whichever direction you are coming from, you’ll end up on the "Berliner Ring" orbital motorway (A10), which takes you straight into the city centre.

 

Berlin’s Environmental Zone
Since 2008, Berlin’s city centre has had a designated environmental zone in which only vehicles that meet certain emission standards are allowed be driven. Vehicles that are used in the environmental zone must have a sticker that identifies its pollutant group. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, you can get the sticker in the registration office, vehicle testing centres such as TÜV and DEKRA, or from one of Berlin’s 800 authorised garages.
You can also order stickers for vehicles online at www.umwelt-plakette.de.
Attention: Since January 1st, 2010 only cars with the green sticker are allowed to drive in the environmental zone.
