Leeds-Bradford Airport has one terminal. The departure lounge has all of the shops you need for picking up last minute bits and pieces for your trip. There's a WH Smith for in-flight reading and snacks, Superdrug for toiletries or medication, and Travelex in case you need to exchange some pounds for euros. There's also a World Duty Free, for little luxuries. Dining options at the airport are varied: have a quick burger at Burger King, a sandwich at Camden Food Company, or a coffee and cake at Caffe Ritazza. There's also The Saltaire Bar, which offers a variety of pub grub classics. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the departure lounge you can check into the Yorkshire Lounge for £20*. The lounge has a range of complimentary food and drink, as well as unlimited Wi-Fi access.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Berlin is a massive city. It's best to know which bus, train or other transport you need to reach your accommodation before flying. There are free smartphone apps available for navigating the city's excellent U-bahn (underground train) and S-bahn (overground train) systems. Tegel Airport doesn't have a train station. There are two express buses: TXL JetExpressBus and X9 JetExpressBus. These run between the airport and the city's main transport hubs, Alexanderplatz and Zoologischer Garten. Local buses 128 and 109 also serve the airport, but take a bit longer to reach the city centre. You will need to buy an AB ticket from the machines (and validate it) before boarding. There's also a taxi rank at the airport, although this is an expensive way to get around Berlin. Car hire is available from Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Alamo, Europcar, Hertz, Sixt and Thrifty. Although traffic can be busy, the roads are wide and Germans are generally very careful drivers. Just watch out for cyclists.
You need a passport to fly from Leeds to Berlin. We recommend arriving at the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight.
What to expect in Berlin
Berlin is one hour ahead of Leeds and the local currency is the Euro (€). Most people in Berlin are fluent in English, but it's good to know a few simple German phrases. Try to learn 'hello' (guten tag), 'thank you' (danke schoen), 'please' (bitte) and 'goodbye' (auf wiedersehen) as a bare minimum. Berlin's reputation as a cool city is well justified. It's also very cheap, and is a fantastic destination for those on a budget. Weather in Berlin is more extreme than Britain, with soaring summer temperatures and freezing winters.
