    Berlin Transportation

    I thought the public transport system in Berlin was going to be complicated but its simple compared to London. I found the ticket machine at Schoenefeld Airport and after few goes managed to get the choice of ticket I required. Most visitors only require a ticket for zones A & B but if you want to visit some of the sights out of town such as...

  • Airports

    Berlin Transportation

    Berlin had three airports, but when the new Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brand airport is finally completed, it will have just one. Templehof closed as an airport in 2008 leaving the main airport at Tegel and Schonefeld still operating. Schonefeld, situated about 11 miles south-east of the city centre, was East Berlin’s airport when the city was...

  • Underground - Metro

    Berlin Transportation

    During my travels around Berlin I have made extensive use of the excellent public transport system. Because of where I have stayed I have used the U2 line the most. It is a fascinating line with main line stations like Alexanderplatz that connects to the whole system though the station is spread out with lots of stairs. Potsdamerplatz with its...

    Photos: 1. Cycists at Friedrichstraße station, 2009 2. A double-decker regional train, 2009 During the twenty-eight years of the Berlin Wall this station was the site of many a cheerful reunion and tearful goodbye, because this was where the trains from West Berlin ended. People from the West who had a visa went through passport and customs checks...

  • Bus Line 100

    Berlin Transportation

    A good way to see the sights in Berlin is to ride the double-decker buses on the bus lines 100 and 200. These are relatively new bus lines which were instituted after the Berlin Wall came down, to connect the centers of West and East Berlin. As a result, a lot of the major sights are along these lines. The number 200 bus in the photo is...

  • River Boat Tours

    Berlin Transportation

    If you fancy something different and feel lazy you should try one of the numerous boat trips that ply the rivers and lakes around Berlin. Most sell food & drink onboard whilst you look at the city from a different angle. It’s a great opportunity to take photos and a commetary may be provide though probably only in German.

  • Day Passes - Public Transport

    Berlin Transportation

    Already before coming to Berlin I knew that some Berlin‘s must see places are more or less away from center, also I have found one host, who lived about 15-20 minutes from centre by public transportation. I decided to buy 7 days ticket, the price was around 27 Euros. I was good decision, as I used it everywhere I wanted in A and B zones. For C...

The new station...

  • S-Bahn

    Berlin Transportation

    If you have not used the public transport system in Berlin for a couple of years you need to be aware of some changes to the S Bahn. At weekends you may be a on train which has a display on the front of the train showing it is going to say Wannsee but on route there is an announcement which may mean you have to change trains to continue your...

  • From Schönefeld Airport to City Centre

    Berlin Transportation

    Most of my visits to Berlin have involved staying in the city centre, and I find using the Regional Express train RE7 or the Regionalbahn RB 14 the best way to get to and from Schonefeld Airport. Both trains travel via Alexanderplatz to the main railway station and beyond. The RB19 also goes to the main railway station but takes a different route...

  • Berlin Welcome Card

    Berlin Transportation

    If you intend covering a lot of Berlin by public transport and visit some of the attractions, it’s definitely worth considering buying the Berlin Welcome Card. The outlay may seem a bit expensive initially, but if you’ve done your sums right, you could end up saving yourself a decent amount of money. I bought a 5 day card for zones ABC at a cost of...

  • By Car

    Berlin Transportation

    I have lived about 15 yrs in Berlin without a car, and actually took the driver's licence only then when I moved away from Berlin. In fact there it's easier to survive without a car. Berlin locals (and non locals) often drive reckless and inconsiderate as much as those LIP (Lippe) folks do!! As for Berlin/Brandenburg I only found HVL (Havelland)...

  • From Tegel Airport to City Centre

    Berlin Transportation

    I have never travelled in or out of Tegel Airport but as it is due to close sometime in the future I decided to pay a visit and check on public transport from the airport. For any first time visitor to Berlin it may seem daunting to take a bus but it is a lot cheaper than a €30 taxi ride and fairly easy. There are 4 bus routes from the airport and...

  • Taxi - Cab

    Berlin Transportation

    These 3 wheeled Taxi Cycles can be found in certain areas of the city, usually where there is a higher density of tourists. Examples would be the Brandenburg gate and on and near the Berlin Cathedral and Museum Island. I do not know the cost, as I did not take one. But my guess is not too much and also, you may be able to haggle. Nonetheless, seem...

    Zoologischer Garten Banhof, colloquialy called Banhof Zoo, was the central transport facility in West Berlin during the division of the city. It is originally Stadtbahn Station, openned in 1882. Following the launching of the new Berlin Hauptbahnhof in 2006, Banhof Zoo dramatically lost its importance. Thanks to the local football fans it wasnt so...

    I have been on a boat trip in Berlin before but it was one of those tourist ones travelling along the Spree. This time I decided to use one which is included in the public transport ticket. There are 6 different routes but only 3 run during the winter months. I caught the F10 which runs between Wannsee and Alt Kladow and the A B zone tickets covers...

  • Velo Taxi - Bicycle Cab

    You have time enough? Then you can rent one of the bicycle taxi in the town and doing the sightseeing tour in another way. Slowly, but funny, across the city, to take from many places in the town, and with a roof when it is raining.

    Berlin Transportation

    I was flying from Brussels with SN Brussels airline. Our new 'national' company is now plain crap.

Anyway whining is not the purpose of this post, the good thing about SN is that they have quite...

  • Hi Flyer Air Balloon

    I first spotted the Berlin Hi-Flyer from the roof of the Reichstag and thought it similar to the tethered balloon I had seen in Budapest. I later saw it more close up when I went to Wilhelmstrasse but it was not flying on that day because of weather conditions. This is one of the largest helium balloons in the world that carrys you in a gondola 150...

    If you wish to walk in Berlin and just to walk, it is possible, but center is quite spread out, so it will simply take more of your time. Let’s say, if you want ti walk from Cathedral to Berlin ZOO, it is already bigger distance, I used public transportation for this distance. Some buildings or more famous places better reachable by public...
