Terminal Information – Arriving
Schönefeld Airport has one terminal. German public transport is extremely efficient, and the airport is served by bus and train. Train is the fastest option. The station is a five minute walk away under a covered path. Berlin is an absolutely sprawling city, so the train you take will depend on where you're planning to stay. Two suburban lines (S9 and S45) serve the airport, as do two regional lines (RE7 and RB14). Both require an ABC ticket, which costs €3.20* (about £2.30). Skip the queues in the station by purchasing yours at the machine on the platform. Stamp your ticket at the small machine to validate it before you board. Ticket inspectors are common on this line, and they have no qualms about fining unexperienced tourists.
You need a valid passport to travel to Berlin. Aim to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight is due to depart.
What to expect in Berlin
The beer flows like water and the street food is excellent, making Berlin a dream for budget travellers. A three-course meal for two in an average restaurant shouldn't set you back much more than £30. The city's neighbourhoods each have their own character. Neukölln has Turkish restaurants and hipster bars, Kreuzberg has fantastic punk-rock grit, and Charlottenburg is high-end. The excellent public transport system makes it easy to discover the joys of each area. Berlin is one hour ahead of the UK. Most shops close on Sundays, even the large international chains.
