German low-cost airline with a hub at Berlin Tegel Airport
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'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.
Transfers from the Airports
If you don't wish to rely on public transportation and prefer the convenience of a transfer, here are your options:
Getting Around Berlin
The city's 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.
Berlin is also very bicycle friendly, with specifically marked bike lanes everywhere.
The U/S Bahn rail service is another useful option, with 10 U-Bahn and 13 S-Bahn lines. See the website to plan your routes: www.s-bahn-berlin.de
