On this page, we kindly provide you with maps of Berlin as PDF or print which are useful to get around in Germany's capital. To help you move into the city, you may use the transport maps of Berlin operated by the BVG. The network includes 10 subway lines, 15 commuter rail lines, 22 tram lines 6 and ferry lines.

Berlin's public transportation network

There are two network maps available including regional train, S-Bahn and underground lines. The first one focuses on the inner city and zones AB while the second one also covers Potsdam and Schoenefeld airport within zones ABC.

When you are exploring the eastern boroughs such as Prenzlauer Berg, Friedrichshain or even Marzahn, you will need a map of the tram and metro tram system, which is mainly running in former East Berlin. Trams with "M"-numbers are metro trams, which run more frequently (every 10 minutes) than normal trams (every 20-30 minutes).

If you are exploring Berlin's nightlife a map of  the night buses might be interesting for you. You will only see these buses with the "N"-numbers at night. They usually run along underground lines when the underground has stopped its service during the night.

Underground, bus and tram operator BVG also offers a journey planner on their website, which makes it quite easy to find a connection.

Bike Sharing in Berlin

The Berlin bike network is about 385 miles (620 km) thanks to a strong policy to develop the dedicated cycle path initiated by the city of Berlin. Many dedicated lanes for cyclists have been built to facilitate coexistence with motorists. Bike routes were created to help people enjoy the city. Get maps for biking routes here.

Call a Bike is a bike hire system in Berlin (Germany) available since 2010. Established by the city of Berlin, the system is operated by the DeutscheBahn. The network is available in Mitte, Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg districts, and proposes a fleet of 1,650 bicycles spread over 120 stations. You may find here all Call a Bike stations in one map.

Ferries in Berlin

Berlin, the capital city of Germany, has an extensive network of rivers, lakes and canals. As a consequence ferry transport forms a part of the transport network of Berlin. There are six passenger ferry routes that operate within the city boundaries of Berlin and are part of the common public transport tariff run by the Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg (VBB). All six routes are operated by the Stern und Kreisschiffahrt by order of the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), the operator of Berlin's U-Bahn, trams and buses.
