Public Transportation

Berlin Public Transportation

Berlin has not only a dense network of public transport, but also cheap tickets for school classes and for small travel groups. Here is a short overview:

Arriving to Berlin

Arriving by plane

Berlin has two airports. Tegel Airport is located northwest of the city center, but there is no direct subway connection. You must therefore take a bus to get to the city center. The buses stop in front of the main building – Terminal A. The TXL bus – which bears the same name as the abbreviation of the airport – departs from the airport through the entire city center of Berlin – including the Brandenburg Gate and Alexanderplatz – and has spaces for luggage. Alternatively, the bus X9 goes to the nearest underground station which can be reached in about 10 minutes – this is the subway station Jakob-Kaiser-Platz on the underground line U7.

From Schoenefeld Airport you have to either walk about 15 minutes to the next city trains station (S-Bahn), which brings you directly into the city center with stops at Alexanderplatz in the City East and Zoologischer Garten in the City West. Or you take the bus X7 which starts directly in front of the main building of the airport. After an about 15 minutes ride on the bus you will get to the underground line U7 which will take you to the city center.

Arriving by train

The main railyway station is located next to the government district and in the city center of Berlin. From there you have exellent connections with the city train to all parts of the city. If you live in the western part of the city i may be advantageous to get of at the station Spandau or Zoologischer Garten instead, in case your trains stops there. If your accommodation is located in eastern Berlin, you should get off at Ostbahnhof.

Mobility within Berlin

Line Network

The operator of public transport in Berlin is called BVG. Tickets you purchase are valid throughout Berlin for all subway lines, suburban trains, buses and trams. In addition, there is a night line network with buses. You can find the entire line network here>> .

Tickets

There are 3 tariff zones A, B and C. Practically every ticket is valid in the area A and B. Therefore, check whether the starting point of your journey or its destination is in Area C – such as Schoenefeld Airport.

With a single ticket you can use the public transportation system for up to 2 hours. In addition to the usual day tickets, there are particularly interesting tickets for Berlin visitors:

Small Group Card: This is a day pass for groups of up to 5 people, which is much cheaper than 5 single day passes.

Group day pass for pupils: Day pass for at least 10 students up to grade 8 plus accompanying persons, which is unbeatable in terms of price.

If you are traveling alone, as a couple, as a family or a small group in Berlin and would like to see a lot, we recommend the Berlin Welcome Card. This is a combination of a public transport ticket for 2 or more days and discounts on admission to numerous tourist attractions. The welcome card is available in numerous variants, e.g. with a duration of 48 hours or even 6 days, with or without Potsdam or also with free admission to the museums of the Museum Island.

All tariffs can be found at here>> .
