Berlin offers two airports which both are accessible with the public transport system very easily. Schönefeld 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 S49 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 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 or underground ticket costs € 2.40 (fair zone AB), or € 3.10 for trips to the surroundings (fair zone ABC). The new Willy Brandt Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER for short) is currently being built in Berlin Schönefeld. In the future the entire air traffic of the region will be handled from the completely new airport, and the previous Berlin airports at Tegel and Schönefeld will be closed down. Berlin is the largest low-cost airline location in continental Europe. The inner-European network is tightly knit. The range of long haul flights on offer is rising constantly.

Taxi fares:
from Tegel airport approx. 18 €

from Schönefeld airport approx. 30 €

The inner city is crossed from west to east by the elevated main line of the city railway (Stadtbahn), which carries S-Bahn trains as well as regional and long-distance trains. Public transport within Berlin is provided by the S-Bahn, U-Bahn, Straßenbahn (streetcar), Bus and ferries, all at affordable prices. The second component of Berlin‘s rail network is the S-Bahn ring that forms a circle around the inner city.
