Getting to BER by public transport

BER is very well connected to public transport in Berlin and surrounding areas. The Airport Express (FEX) and regional trains (RE7, RB14) travel between Berlin central station 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.
