Article: Berlin: faster than you think

From 31 October 2020: Berlin City ◂▸ BER with the Airport Express (FEX)

Berlin’s new BER airport is the city’s largest international transport hub. Eleven hourly connections between BER and the city ensure an ideal link to the capital’s public transport system. Five regional trains (RE7, RB14, RB22 and two FEX trains) and six S-Bahn trains (three S9 and S45 trains respectively) will bring passengers to their destination, regardless of whether they’re arriving or departing. At the station, the trains stop directly below BER Terminal 1-2, ensuring a short route to check in. No traffic jams, no stress with car parks. Arrive relaxed and on time.

Probably no other station in Berlin says more about the former division of the city. S-Bahn trains used to serve East and West Berlin from here, the respective platforms divided by a large wall. The former terminus has long since returned to being an interchange station, with a total of 8 tracks for S-Bahn and regional trains.

Bahnhof Alexanderplatz

Berlin Ostbahnhof

07c_timeline_rb14_ostbahnhof

Frankfurter Bahnhof, Schlesischer Bahnhof, Ostbahnhof, Hauptbahnhof, Ostbahnhof – it’s hard to believe there could be another train station which has seen its name change so often. Only one thing was constant: the journey eastwards. Nowadays, long-distance trains coming from all directions stop at this station in the east of the city, as do regional and S-Bahn trains.

On 22 September 1838, Prussia’s first train, drawn by two steam engines from Berlin, stopped at the main transport hub of Brandenburg’s state capital. Today, five regional lines stop here, along with the S-Bahn, while countless bus and tram lines run in all directions from the station’s forecourt.

Potsdam Charlottenhof

rb22-Potsdam Charlottenhof

The train station, which opened to passengers in 1887 and is now a protected monument, is situated in direct proximity to Charlottenhof Palace. It is no surprise that, amidst such splendid surroundings, the station features decorative Jugendstil architecture. S-Bahn and regional trains stop here, and there are connections to Potsdam’s tram network.

Potsdam Park Sanssouci

rb22-Park Sansoucci

Every day, hundreds of commuters and students from the nearby Potsdam University pass through the former Bürgerbahnhof (Citizens’ Train Station). As the name suggests, this is an ideal starting point for visiting Potsdam’s most famous park. Tsar Nicholas II and Theodore Roosevelt once arrived at the Kaiserbahnhof situated to the west of the station, while today the building – also a protected monument – is home to the Deutsche Bahn Academy.
