Currency exchanges, ticket counters and ATMs are located here. You can even visit the observation decks at the airport for a small fee.

    Transportation / How to get to the airport

    If picking up a rental car straight from the airport, it is a thirty minute drive to Alexanderplatz in the centre of Berlin. You can find additional information regarding driving in Germany here.

    In case you are not picking up your car hire from Berlin Schönefeld Airport, but from a downtown location instead, there are a number of means of transportation that will take you to the city centre. The S-Bahn, regional trains and buses are available from the airport. With the Autobahn and highly-maintained roads in Germany, it is quite easy to visit surrounding cities such as Hamburg or Dresden.

    Parking Tips

    Parking lots are located throughout the city of Berlin and while some of these lots are free, many you will have to pay a couple of euros for. You will generally have to pay for any lots in the centre of the city. It is advised that you park your rental car outside this area if possible and travel into the city on public transport as many 'Park & Ride' facilities exist on the outskirts. Some hotels will also offer their guests parking space.
