Thinking about flying from London to Germany's capitol and largest city? Don't miss the rich history and culture of Berlin. Here's what you need to know before you go.
Airport Options for Flying Out of London
London is home to the busiest airport system in the world. There are six London airports. The three main ones are Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), and Stansted (STN). Each has unique options for non-stop flights to Berlin.
There are two airports serving Berlin, Germany: Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL) and Berlin Schonefeld (SXF). Berlin Tegel is the larger of the two.
Heathrow Airport is the busiest in the London area. It's located 15 miles west of London. You can get a direct flight from Heathrow to Berlin Tegel Airport from Eurowings, British Airways, and AirBerlin. Eurowings departs from terminal 2, while British Airways and AirBerlin use terminal 5.
Gatwick Airport is the second busiest airport in London, about 28 miles south of the city. You can catch a direct flight from Gatwick to Berlin Schonefeld from Easy Jet Airlines. This airline departs from Gatwick's North Terminal.
The third busiest airport in London is Stansted. It's located about 39 miles north of the city. You can get a non-stop flight from Stansted to Berlin Schonefeld from Ryanair.
Since London to Berlin is an international flight, it's a good idea to get to the airport three hours before your scheduled take-off. U.S. citizens need a valid passport to enter Germany. If you're staying in Germany less than 90 days, you don't need a travel visa.
Arriving in Berlin
If you've flown to Berlin Tegel Airport, you'll be around seven miles from Berlin's city center. Berlin Schonefeld is 14 miles from downtown Berlin. After passing through customs, you'll want to secure some ground transportation. Berlin has a public bus system that can help you easily get into the city. You can catch a taxi from either airport. You could also get a rental car (called car hire service in Germany). If you opt to drive a rental car, be aware that they do drive on the right side of the road, just like the U.S. You can drive in Germany if you have a U.S. Driver's License. However, most rental cars in Germany have a stick shift. You will also need to learn the meanings of German road signs.
