Departing from BER

Your onward journey from BER

The new Airport Express (FEX) will travel between BER Terminal 1-2 and Berlin Hbf. (Central Station) every 30 minutes. The train journey will take about 30 minutes and trains will also stop at Ostkreuz station and in Berlin Gesundbrunnen. Together with the current RE7 and RB14 lines, there will be fast connections between BER T1-2 and Berlin Central Station and Ostkreuz four times an hour during the day.

The RE7, RB14 and RB22 lines also offer direct hourly connections to Potsdam, Königs Wusterhausen, Nauen and Wünsdorf-Waldstadt.
Many other places in Brandenburg can be reached by changing trains only once in Berlin, Potsdam or Königs Wusterhausen.

The S9 and S45 local S-Bahn train lines will be extended from Terminal 5 of BER via Wassmannsdorf to Terminal 1-2. This means that there will be a service from BER to Berlin‘s city centre every 20 minutes, i.e. a total of 6 services an hour.
At the same time, the local S-Bahn train also allows people to travel from one terminal to the other in just 8 minutes approximately every 10 minutes.

The new Rostock-Berlin-Dresden Intercity line will stop at BER Airport T1-2 every two hours and so connect BER to the German long-distance rail network. After Elsterwerda and Doberlug-Kirchhain, the IC trains can also be used with VBB tickets.

Bus transport offers an attractive addition to rail transport – especially as buses run at impressive 5-minute intervals. New central bus stops have been or are being built at both terminals to provide bus connections. At BER Terminal 1-2, the buses can be found in front of Terminal 1 on the Arrivals level. At BER Terminal 5, the new bus stop is located on the well-known connecting corridor between the railway station and the terminal and is expected to be fully operational in December.
