If you have booked an intermodal connection via BER and arrive by train, you are already directly below Terminal 1. From the tracks, you can either take one of the elevators directly to the T1 check-in hall or make your way up by escalator and then choose between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
Self-service kiosks have already been set up on the U1 level for intermodal transfer passengers. Here you can print a baggage label right on the first level above the train tracks. All you then have to do is hand in your baggage in the check-in hall. It is only a few minutes' walk to Terminal 2 via arrivals level E0. Here, travelers will immediately find their airline's check-in.
The long-distance bus station at BER is located directly opposite Terminal 1. If you arrive or depart by long-distance bus, you can walk directly into Terminal 1 and proceed to check-in. A little tip: Use the self-service kiosks on level U1 and print your luggage label here. After that, all you have to do is drop off your suitcase. Travelers departing from Terminal 2 also go to Terminal 1 and then use the signposted route via Level E0 to Terminal 2.
Self-transfer from flight to flight has become an important way of traveling. With VIABER we offer you detailed information, offers and cooperations around the topic of self-transfer at BER.
In order to make the self-transfer from flight to flight at BER as comfortable as possible, we have described all important process steps for you below. You can find an enlarged view of the individual steps here:
If you are traveling with checked baggage, proceed to baggage claim after exiting the aircraft and retrieve your baggage. Then proceed to the departure terminal of your second flight and check in your baggage again at the check-in counters of the airline of your connecting flight. Proceed to the security checkpoint again. If you are traveling with carry-on baggage only and arrive in Terminal 1, you may transfer throughout the airport without leaving the aviation security area. When arriving from the non-Schengen area or departing to the non-Schengen area, you will go through an additional passport control in any case. When arriving from the non-Schengen area in Terminal 2, you will have to leave the aviation security area and pass through security again. This also applies to arrivals in T2 from the Schengen area with checked baggage.
Please note that there are two different, separate non-Schengen areas at BER Airport. This means that if you are transferring at Berlin Brandenburg Airport and you are arriving from or departing to a non-Schengen destination with Ryanair or Wizz Air, you will need a border crossing document (e.g. visa) for Germany in order to continue your journey to your final destination. This applies when travelling with and without checked baggage.
