To make the self-transfer transfer at BER as comfortable as possible, we have described all important process steps for you beneath. An enlarged view of the individual steps can be found here:
If you are traveling with checked baggage, proceed to baggage claim after exiting the aircraft and retrieve your baggage. Check 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, you may transfer within T1 without leaving the aviation security area. When arriving from or departing to the non-Schengen area, you will in any case go through a passport control as well.
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.
