Getting to Berlin
We recommend traveling within Europe by train or car.
Please check the website of the national German railway company Deutsche Bahn for information on timetables, prices and more.
It is very easy to travel to Berlin by car. The city is very well connected to various motorways, and many major avenues lead into the city centre. Please note that a vignette is required to drive in the green zone of Berlin’s city centre. Vehicles that are used in the environmental zone must have a sticker that identifies its pollutant group. The new rule for the second stage of Berlin’s environmental zone includes a driving ban within Berlin’s S-Bahn ring for vehicles with yellow stickers. German coaches need a green sticker to be allowed in Berlin’s city centre. Foreign coaches are not affected by this rule and can continue to drive with a yellow sticker in the city centre
If you’re not bringing your own car with you, Berlin has a good network of car-sharing operators – your choice for excursions around the city. Providers such as Miles, Share Now, Cambio or Sixt can be found at all major train stations and airports as well as online or via app.
You can park the vehicles of most car-sharing providers easily and for free at the airport. They are therefore ideal for transfers from the airport to the city centre. Once you arrive in Berlin, you can easily get around the city centre by
We recommend to minimise the distance flown when travelling by air:
- choose minimal impact routes e.g. by calculating flight emissions with Atmosfair
- compensate your flight emissions by offsetting through reputable companies e.g. Atmosfair
BER Airport is located on the southern outskirts of Berlin. The airport consists of two terminal complexes. The terminals 1 and 2 are located in a newly built airport building, while terminal 5 is located a 10-minute drive away on the grounds of the former Schönefeld Airport (SXF) . Both terminal complexes are well connected to public transport. From the train stations BER Terminal 5 and Terminal 1/2, S-Bahn trains as well as regional trains depart in short intervals toward the center of Berlin.

There are many taxi services in Berlin besides Uber.
This is just one number to call when in need for a cab ride: +49 (0) 30 202020.
You can either call for immediate pick up or schedule a ride in advance. Hailing cabs from the spot is not always easy and depends on time, weather and where you are. Alternatively, check the FreeNow app.
If you can, keep some banknotes of lower denomination with you – taxi drivers are not obliged to hold large amounts of change. In some taxis you can pay for your ride by EC cash or credit card. However, we recommend asking before you get in.
