Local public transport

Schönefeld Airport has a railway station that provides excellent connections (regional and S-Bahn trains) to Berlin's centre and surrounding areas. Numerous bus connections round off the range of local public transport options. The airport is located in fare zone C. The airport is just a five-minute walk from the railway station via a covered walkway.
Here is an overview of direct connections and important destinations:

S-Bahn railway

From 14 March to 20 May 2016, the Brandenburg Roads Agency (Landesbetrieb Straßenwesen Brandenburg) will be carrying out reconstruction work on the B96a dual carriageway to and from Schönefeld Airport. The bus stops around Schönefeld railway station will have to be relocated during the construction period.
