Fast and convenient

From Berlin to BER several times per hour

Passengers who travel to BER or want to leave it again after their arrival can flexibly choose the right option from numerous bus and train connections.

Routes

BER is very well connected to public transport in Berlin and surrounding areas. The Airport Express and regional trains travel between Berlin Hauptbahnhof and “Flughafen BER - Terminal 1-2” station several times per hour. The S9 and S45 S-Bahn trains travel every 20 minutes, serving the “Terminal 1-2” and “Terminal 5” stations. Buses are also available.

Hint

The regional and long-distance trains stop exclusively at the station "Flughafen BER - Terminal 1-2"; the S-Bahn S9 and S45 stop at both airport stations. Passengers departing from Terminal 5 and arriving at "Terminal 1-2" station on regional or long-distance trains should change to the S-Bahn trains there and travel two stops to "Terminal 5" station.
