How to Get to Berlin by Air

Berlin has three international airports, one at Tegel, another at Tempelhof south of the center, and a third in Schonefeld beyond city limits. All of these are served by major world carriers and have regular bus shuttles or subway lines transporting passengers into town. Alternately one can take a taxi or rent a car at the airport.

How to Get to Berlin by Rail

There are major rail routes to Berlin from Hamburg, Hannover, Koln, Frankfurt and other German cities, as also from the rest of Europe. You could call Deutsche Bahn for further information on train travel to Berlin from within Germany, at 03019419.

How to Get to Berlin by Bus

Buses connect the city of Berlin to over 170 European cities. Reservations may be made through commercial travel agencies or through the central bus terminal.

If you’re planning on driving around yourself be prepared for traffic jams, especially on weekends when everyone seems to be heading out into the countryside. Otherwise the road network is excellent and driving in Germany is a sheer delight. Keep your International Driving License handy, follow the rules precisely, watch out for speedsters and you’re ready for the road.

Getting Around Berlin

Rent a car. If you don’t enjoy parking, taxis are easily available and call-a-cab facilities exist. The public transport systems are efficient, comfortable and clean. Buses and street cars take you around in Eastern Berlin. S-bahn and U-bahn trainline stations are at frequent intervals and between the trains and walking you could cover a lot of Berlin.

The best bargain for the commuter is the Tourist Pass; bought for 20 EUR at the time of writing, it is valid for 48 hours. It also gives discounts on over 120 attractions.
