Tegel: Berlin’s main airport

Tegal is the main international airport in Berlin. Its origins were in the cold war — during the Berlin airlift — when blockaded by the Soviets, the West flew supplies in to support the enclave of West Berlin. Over 200,000 flights were made in one year and Tegel was constructed to help achieve this. Today the airport consists of 5 small terminals and is a hub for most major airlines.

Schönefeld: the airport of East Berlin

Schönefeld Airport is a smaller international airport in the south of Berlin. The new Brandenburg Airport is being constructed alongside it. It was the former airport of East Berlin and today is used predominantly by smaller budget airlines.

Coming soon: Berlin Brandenburg airport

Berlin will in the future have a one new airport: Berlin Brandenburg Airport, but a number of issues have consistently delayed its opening. The new airport is planned to replace both current Berlin airports: Berlin Tegel Airport and Berlin Schönefeld Airport. When it does open Berlin Brandenburg Airport will have a capacity for around 27 million passengers per year. It will have over 20,000 employees and its own train station.

You have many options to get to and from Berlin airports:

  • Shuttle services run to selected hotels. Some shuttle companies have desks in the terminals but it’s best to book online in advance.
  • If you decide to pick a private driver as your Withlocals host, he can bring you to the city easily
  • There are taxi stands outside — taxis in Berlin are reliable and efficient (but can be pricey).
  • To and from Berlin Airports via bus is also effortlessly simple — there are bus stops outside the main terminals and ticket machines available nearby — or you can simply buy a ticket direct from the bus driver.
  • For Tegel Airport the X9 Bus is the one to look for — departing every five to ten minutes in the direction of Zoo Station. It’ll take you about twenty minutes to get there, and once you are — any destination in the city can be accessed from the Zoo Station through the S-Bahn or U-Bahn train networks.
  • Schönefeld Airport is served by S-Bahn train station only a 5 minute walk from the terminal. Trains depart from the airport to the city center every 10 minutes.
  • Rental cars are available — with main rental companies represented at the terminals of Airports in Berlin. It’s always best to book online first for convenience — plus you’ll likely save money.

Berlin Chocolate Tour

Me and my girlfriend had a great time during the chocolate tour with Elena.
Very kind and enthousiastic telling, Elena is a great host for the tour. Although you don't see really cultural sightings, you'll still see different parts of Berlin.

For another tour with Elena, for us it's a no-brainer! :)
