There’s there’s no denying that Berlin has seen its share of history and spent more time at the cutting edge than almost anywhere else. Today, Berlin is regarded as something of an alternative cultural capital in Europe, where art, design, music, and fashion all receive a special slant. 

Flights to Berlin

Two main airports serve Berlin. The first, Tegel International Airport (TXL) is the area’s main international airport. Serving 19.5 million passengers annually, it is Germany’s 4th busiest airport. It is a hub for AirBerlin and also acts as a base for Germanwings. It’s just 5 miles outside the city center. Several buses connect directly to TXL, and taxis are readily available. Note: Tegel Airport does not have a rail link. There is a “Tegel” stop on the S-Bahn but it refers to a fairly remote suburban village which has no direct connection to the airport. 

Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SFX) is on the southeastern side of the city. It’s often your best bet if you are looking for cheap flights to Berlin as it acts as a base for several low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet.
