Berlin, Germany Airport Information

Tegel Airport - TXL (27WI)

Approximate taxi fare: € 20 EUR

Located in the northwest of the city, Berlin-Tegel Otto Lilienthal Airport (TXL) is its chief international airport. Since it is operated by the same company as Schoenefeld Airport, and with that entity, is expected to be transformed into Brandenburg Airport sometime in the future. Many of the two airports' statistics and operations have been combined, such as the number of destinations covered (171). However, of the more than 29 million air passengers arriving in Berlin in 2015, more than 21 million passengers arrived in Tegel. Wi-Fi is available through a selection of paid providers, and restaurants and shops are available throughout its terminals.

Tegel Airport is accessible to Berlin thanks to various buses and express buses operated by BVG (Berlin Transport Services). The airport is in Zone B. Bus stops are located outside Terminal A and B. Suedkreuz or Berlin Hauptbahnhof, whence travelers can catch one of the many long-distance national and European rail connections offered by Deutsche Bahn, are just a 30-minute ride from Tegel Airport.

Berlin, Germany Public Transportation

Berlin Hauptbahnhof Station

Berlin can be reached from every direction via the InterCityExpress, InterCity, EuroCity and InterRegio Trains. Berlin's central station Hauptbahnhof opened in 2006. All stations are conveniently connected to the BVG public transportation system.

BVG

Berlin has an integrated public transportation system known as the BVG. Consisting of public buses, underground rails known as "U-Bahn," and surface rails known as "S-Bahn," this fast and efficient interconnected system allows passengers to hop from network to network using only one ticket.

Berlin is divided into three transport zones A, B, and C, but for most travel purposes, zones A and B are sufficient. Zone A is surrounded by the S-Bahn ring and covers the center of the city. Zone B ends at the city limits of Berlin, while Zone C encompasses nearby destinations such as Berlin Schonefeld Airport, Potsdam, and Oranienburg.

The BVG operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Single ticket fares are €2.70 for zones A and B. Children ages 6-14 receive a reduced fare of €1.70. Children under six ride free with an accompanying adult.

Rental Cars

Driving in Berlin is surprisingly easy compared to other European cities. The roadways are wide, signposts are prominent, and traffic is nominal. As part of Berlin's many green initiatives, the inner city is an "environmental zone," where only cars that are up to emission standards are allowed. Drivers need a sticker with information about the emissions standard of the car.

Taxis

More than 7,000 taxis operate throughout Berlin 24 hours a day. Taxi stands can be found at all main stations and airports as well as hotels. Most Berlin taxi drivers speak English, but not all.

For shorter taxi rides, travelers can opt for the "hailing fare" (available only when hailing a passing taxi, not from a taxi rank) by which a short journey only costs €4. Passengers must ask the taxi driver for this fare at the start of the journey.
