Terminal C at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport
Terminal C at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport is the starting point for tours of the airport and the meeting point for visitors. This passenger terminal, located between Terminals A and D, has newly opened following refurbishment and is now operated by Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. A small exhibition informs visitors about Berlin’s airports and the theme of travel. A colourful kids’ corner provides fun activities for our youngest guests as well.
Infotower summer opening times
The Infotower at BER is now open again every day from 10 am to 6 pm. Situated in the immediate vicinity of the terminal, this observation tower provides a fantastic view over the BER site, which covers about the same area as 2,000 soccer pitches. During good weather you can see as far as Berlin, and you can even clearly make out the television tower on Alexanderplatz. The visitor pavilion directly next to the Infotower provides information about Berlin Brandenburg Airport. No booking is required to enter the Infotower – admission costs two euros, or one euro at the reduced rate. Admission for children aged under six is free of charge.

Each tour features different stopping-off points where visitors can leave the bus to take a look around.
