Terminal Information – Departing
This information is just a guide. Always check your boarding card for up-to-date terminal information.
Most flights to Berlin from Heathrow Airport leave from Terminal 5, although some leave from Terminal 2. Terminal 5 has its own stop on the Heathrow Express and Piccadilly Line, and prides itself on being “the home of luxury shopping.” There are plenty of great restaurants to try, including Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food.
Terminal 2, The Queen’s Terminal, also has a good range of high end designer stores. If you fancy a bite, give The Perfectionist’s Cafe a try. It’s owned by Heston Blumenthal so there are sure to be some fab foodie surprises on offer.
Both easyJet and Norwegian Air Shuttle fly out of Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal. This is also where the Gatwick Express stops, and most of the buses from central London. The Terminal itself is a great place to while away a couple of hours, with a massive range of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.
Stansted Airport only has one terminal, but inside you’ll find plenty of great places to dine and shop. There’s even a champagne bar, if you want to kick off your trip in style.
Luton Airport has one terminal. There’s free Wi-Fi, a fab selection of high street shops, and a nail bar if you feel like you deserve a pre-flight manicure.
Southend Airport is very small, with just a few shops and eateries. It does have a First Class Lounge, which can be booked in advance. It’s great if you want to enjoy some complementary drinks and snacks in a less stressful environment.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Most airlines fly from London to Berlin-Schönefeld, while Germanwings and British Airways both fly into Berlin-Tegel.
Schönefeld Airport only has one terminal. There’s a bus stop outside, but the quickest way into the city centre is by S-bahn (the overground urban railway). The station is a five minute walk from the terminal building, under a covered walkway. You will need an ABC ticket to travel into the city, as the airport is in Zone C.
Tegel Airport has five terminals but they’re all within walking distance of each other. There’s no rail link between the city centre and Tegel Airport, but there are good bus connections thanks to the TXL JetExpressBus, the X9 JetExpressBus, the 128 Bus and the 109 Bus. Berlin is a massive city so it’s important to know which bus you need.
You need a valid passport to travel to Berlin from London. If your passport is due to expire while you’re out of the country you might not be allowed to board your flight. We recommend arriving at the airport at least an hour before your flight is scheduled to depart. Arrive even earlier if you want to check in some bags, and leave extra time if you’re travelling during the school holidays or at the weekend.
