Travel to Berlin

Getting to Berlin is relatively quite easy. There are several ways to go to Berlin. You can go to Berlin by air, by train and by bus.
If you want the fastest way of getting to Berlin, you can take one of the many flights that fly to Berlin year in and year out.  There are currently three international airports in Berlin. So if you want to get to Berlin by air it’s certainly possible.

The Tegel Airport
Tegel is Berlin’s official international airport. It is quite a busy airport with around 11 million travelers passing through this airport annually. This should not be surprise since Berlin is among the most visited cities in Europe.
The good thing about the Tegel airport is its accessibility. You’ll have a lot of public transport choices. You have a choice between the bus X9 and 109. You can also take the 128 or the TXL.

The Tempelhof Airport
Tempelhof is the oldest of the three airports and it is the smallest as well. But this airport is not to be discounted as you can get to and fro Berlin from many European destinations. The airport is accessible as well. You have the underground U6. You can also take buses 104 and 248.

The Schoenefeld Airport
This airport services charter planes and low fare airlines. So if you are taking a flight in one of those low fare flights, you will most likely land in this airport. From Schoenefeld you can take the airport express, the train, the over ground or take the bus going to the other parts of the city. You can also use a rental car and take the A100 or the A113.
This airport is currently being renovated and expanded. And by 2011, Schoenefeld airport would be named as Berlin Brandenburg International.

Getting to Berlin by Train
Since you can particularly travel to almost all parts of Europe by train, you can definitely get to Berlin by train too. If you are coming from a nearby city or a neighboring country, it’s quite easy to go to Berlin by train. You will arrive the Berlin Hauptbahnhof train station and be amazed of its size and grandiose location.

Getting to Berlin by Bus
Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof station hosts a lot of buses from all over Europe. Again, if you are coming from other parts of Europe you can travel by bus and get to Berlin with less hassle.

Getting to Berlin by Car
If you want an adventure, this is a good way to travel to Berlin. You would be able to see the sights and make a few stops whenever it suits you. Then you can enter Berlin through the Berliner ring, A10. This Autobahn circles the whole city. If you want you can also follow the Berliner Stadtring A100 which half circles the city.
