Berlin is Germany’s political, cultural and historical centre. It is once again a top 10 destination amongst world metropolises. And because the German capital sits in the heart of Europe, it’s an easy city to access – whether you’re coming from Vladivostok or Wanne-Eickel. Whether you’re taking a plane, train, car, bus or boat, there’s always a way to get to Berlin.
Berlin has two airports, both of which are easily accessible via the public transport system.
Schönefeld is situated in southeast Berlin, approximately 18 km from the city centre. The airport is connected with the city centre by the S-Bahn (suburban train) lines S49 and S9 as well as by several AirportExpress trains that run from/to Hauptbahnhof, Zoologischer Garten, Friedrichstraße, Alexanderplatz and Ostbahnhof every half hour. S45 and S9 take about 45 minutes for the trip to the centre; the trains take either 15 min (from/to Ostbahnhof), 30 min (from/to Hauptbahnhof) or 35 min (from/to Zoologischer Garten). All trains and the S-Bahn stop at the ‘Flughafen Berlin-Schönefeld’ station.

Tegel is situated in the northwest of Berlin, approximately 8 km from the city centre. You can reach the western side of the city centre from the airport within 15 minutes. Apart from 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 only stop at the main bus stops and are therefore a quick connection.
