How do I get to downtown Berlin from Tegel Airport?

Berlin's Tegel Airport (TXL) is located approximately 7 miles northwest of Berlin with several ways to travel between the airport and the central parts of the city.

JetExpressBus offers a fast connection between Tegel airport and downtown Berlin with buses running every 10 to 20 minutes. Bus "TXL" takes you to the main train station, or Hauptbahnhof, in about 20 minutes. Bus "X9" brings you to the Zoologischer Garten (Zoological Garden) station in about 20 minutes. Both stations are major transfer hubs that allow you to connect to other forms of public transportation. Fares are 2.1 euros each way (covering zones A and B).

Taxis are available and cost 15+ euros to reach central Berlin. The trip will generally take between 15 and 20 minutes depending on traffic and your final destination. Be sure to select a taxi with a "B" as the first letter on its license plate, as it denotes that the taxi is from Berlin.

Rental cars area available from the airport and the drive takes about 15 to 20 minutes to reach downtown Berlin. However, please be aware that there will likely be a daily parking fee of 20+ euros at most hotels.
