Airports

Berlin currently has two airports. Tegel and Schönefeld. Nobody knows when the new airport will be completed. Tegel is located in the north-western part of town and you start you journey by a public bus before changing to the S- or U-Bahn depending on where you want to go. (ticket: AB zones) Schönefeld is located on the outskirts of town in the south-west and from here you either take the train or the S-Bahn (ticket: ABC zones).


Public Transportation

You can check the BVG Website for details about getting to your destination. On Friday and Saturday night most trains run all night. On other nights there are night busses that run all night but they don't run as frequently.
