Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER)
The Berlin Brandenburg Airport is just to the south of Berlin. Holiday and low-cost-airlines fly to Brandenburg. It’s easy to get to Berlin’s city center from BER using public transport. A one-way fare from BER, which is in tariff zone ABC, costs €3.60 (€2.60 for children aged between 6 – 14) and is good for the Airport Express trains, S-Bahn, the underground, buses, and trams. You may make as many stops or transfers as you like within a two-hour period, traveling in one direction.
Take either of the Airport Express trains, RE7 or RB14, which travel in 30-minute intervals between Brandenburg Airport and Berlin-Charlottenburg, with stops at Ostbahnhof, Alexanderplatz, Berlin Central Station and Berlin-Zoo. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Ostbahnhof with the Airport Express and 30 minutes to get to Berlin Central Station. The S-Bahn lines S9 and S45 run between Terminals 1, 2, and 5 at Brandenburg Airport and Stations Spandau and Südkreuz, respectively. Both travel options take around 35 – 40 minutes to get into the city.
From Terminal A, the following buses travel to the Berlin city center: X7, X71, BER1 and BER2.
A ride from Brandenburg to the city center by taxi takes about 25 minutes and costs around €41.00 – €44.00. You’ll find the taxis just outside of Terminal A.
