Terminalwechsel T1/2 und T5

If you are travelling with checked baggage, go to the baggage claim area after leaving the aircraft and collect your baggage. Check your baggage in again for your connecting flight at the airline’s check-in counters. When changing terminals between T1 and T2 with arrival from a non-Schengen area or departure to a non-Schengen area at T1/2, you will pass through a passport and security control. If you have to change between Terminals 1/2 and Terminal 5, you will have to go through the security check in any case and, depending on your destination, through a passport control.

Information on travel times and transfer possibilities between the different terminals at BER can be found here:
