Opening: The BER Berlin Brandenburg Airport

On October 31, 2020 the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (short BER) is scheduled to open. The existing airport Berlin Tegel (TXL) is set to close while Schönefeld Airport (SXF) is going to become Terminal 5 (T5) of the new BER. The new airport is set to become the German capital region’s air traffic hub. The BER will feature two new terminals (T1 and T2), and a second runway to be commissioned on the south side of the airport.

The transfer between the terminals will take eight minutes. Terminal 1 consists of five levels including observation deck for visitors, check-in as well as departure and arrival gates. Tegel Airport (Northwest of Berlin) is set to close on November 8, 2020.

From BER to Berlin or directly to Brandenburg

The BER is perfectly connected to Berlin. All trains commute between the airport train station and the capital several times per hour right below the BER. The new Airport Express “FEX” takes only 35 minutes to the main train station, Berlin Hauptbahnhof. The commuter train lines S9 and S45 depart every 20 minutes and also connect with Terminal 5. Because the planes descend here in the State of Brandenburg, several travel destinations can also be accessed directly from the BER. Alternatively, you can leave the airport by rental car, taking you right into the heart of the nature region Dahme Seenland.

Aside from the hourly commuting regional train to Potsdam (RB22), the RE7 train allows you to reach exciting destinations such as the treetop trail “Baumkronenpfad” in Beelitz-Heilstätten or the Fläming Skate and Bad Belzig circuits. The next available houseboat rental place in Zeuthen can be reached by bus service (line 734) in half an hour. An airport layover of several hours is also no problem: The A10 Center offers shopping opportunities nearby.

…and getting here is much easier now

Arriving faster!
