Transport connections

Bahnhof BER

Train station

Berlin Brandenburg Airport has its own six-platform railway station with three platforms located directly underneath the terminal. It is expected that two out of every three passengers will use public transport to travel to the new airport.


The Airport Express already provides a link between Schönefeld Airport and Berlin city centre. There will in future be trains running every 15 minutes between Berlin Hauptbahhof and BER. The journey takes around 35 minutes. A wide range of “S-Bahn” urban rail services (every 10 minutes) and bus connections complement the local public transport services.

Services from 2020 onwards

Train number Section Frequency
FEX Gesundbrunnen – Hauptbahnhof – BER T1 every 30 minutes
RE7 Dessau, Bad-Belzig – Berlin-Stadtbahn – BER T1 – Wünsdorf-Waldstadt hourly
RB14 Nauen – Berlin-Stadtbahn – BER T1 hourly
RB22 Potsdam – Golm – BER T1 – Königs Wusterhausen hourly
S9 Spandau – Stadtbahn – BER T5 – BER T1 every 20 minutes
S45 Südkreuz – BER T5 – BER T1 every 20 minutes

Train services will be optimised by the end of 2022. Among other things, the current Schönefeld railway station will then be re-integrated into the regional transport system. The commissioning of the Dresdner Bahn (Berlin-Dresden railway), due to take place from 2025 onwards, will further expand transport services, reducing the FEX journey time to just 20 minutes.

Regional and long-distance transport:

Deutsche Bahn will incorporate Berlin Brandenburg Airport in its rail network and, in doing so, provide regional and international connections from there. Destinations within Brandenburg can be reached directly via regional trains departing from BER, with long-distance connections provided, among others, to Hamburg, Hanover, Amsterdam via HBF Berlin, as well as Wroclaw and Krakow. The tracks to and from the new airport are fully compatible with ICE trains.

Road connections

The separate motorway entry/exit point on the A113 autobahn provides a direct and rapid connection to Berlin city centre, with the Berliner Ring A10 orbital motorway providing access to the broad catchment area. Passengers and visitors to BER have more than 10,000 parking spaces to choose from.
