Berlin Airport and Transportation
Getting to and around Berlin
If you're flying into Berlin from within Germany or Western Europe, you'll land at Tegel Airport (TXL).
It is connected twice hourly to the city's central Mitte district by the JetExpressBus TXL. If you're staying closer to
the Charlottenburg or Wilmersdorf districts, use bus X9 or 109.
If you don't wish to rely on public transportation, choose a
private arrival transfer or a
private departure transfer.
If you're coming from Eastern Europe, Asia, or Africa, you'll arrive at
Schönefeld Airport (SXF).
The AirportExpress train connects you to the center of the city, including the stations of Bahnhof Zoo, Alexanderplatz and Ostbahnhof.
(If you wish to use the private transfers from/to this airport, use the links above.)
The city's historic center is very compact and walking is the best way to explore it.
If you find yourself in the eastern sections of the city, you may also use one of the trams.
The U/S Bahn rail service is another useful option, with 10 U-Bahn and 13 S-Bahn lines.
Berlin is also very bicycle friendly, with specifically marked bike lanes everywhere.
