Traveling to Berlin

Berlin is known for its rich history, especially in the 20th Century when it was a city divided by the infamous Berlin Wall. Today, it’s considered one of Europe’s coolest places to visit, in no small part down to the minimalist bars, variety of restaurants and of course, the nightlife. It's very easy to get around with monthly passes, day tickets or tourist tickets available at the ticket machines.

The city itself has a lot of choice in terms of transport. You can use the trams, buses, underground (U-Bahn), overground (S-Bahn) and inner-city trains to hop your way around the city. You can travel via high speed ICE train and arrive at numerous stations in Berlin from other cities in Germany, including Munich.

Travel to Berlin FAQs

What modes of transport are there in Berlin?

BVG operates Berlin's public transport which includes trams, metros and buses, all except for the S-Bahn which belongs to Deutsche Bahn. A day ticket for zones A + B costs 7 EUR for unlimited transport use across even innercity regional trains. Driving in Berlin is not really recommended as it is busy; particularly in the city centre and around rush hour. Rush hour in Berlin is between 8:00 a.m to 10:00 a.m, then again when commuters are returning from work from 5:00 p.m to 6:30 p.m. Outside of these times, however, Berlin is quite a pleasure to drive around with its wide, spacious roads and a great deal of parking spaces. Parking for the whole day in the city centre can cost as much as €18.

Berlin is an extremely pedestrian-friendly city - particularly in the centre - where there are numerous squares and streets that have been entirely pedestrianised. However, don't underestimate its size - walking around the entire city can be long and tiresome. Want to hire a bike in Berlin? No problem. There is a bike-hire scheme as well as numerous private bike hire companies available at Spätis (24 hr shops) or hotels. Cycling is also a popular way to travel around the city because cycle paths are widely accessible in most parts of the city.
