As the third largest airport in the country, Berlin-Tegel serves nearly 26 million travellers each year. While Berlin currently has two airports (Berlin Tegel, which lies north-west of Berlin, and Berlin-Schonefeld Airport, which lies south-east of the city), a modern and larger airport (Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt) is being constructed to serve as the new hub for travellers. Until this airport is complete in 2016, TXL will continue to service the majority of passengers travelling to this region.
Although considered a smaller airport, Berlin Tegel Airport has five terminals, which to most international travellers will appear more like hallways. All five terminals are in one building. Terminal A is a hexagon-ring concourse with 14 jet bridges and 16 check-in counters. Most international flights arrive in Terminal A. Terminal B is home to 19 check-in counters. Terminal C, which opened in 2007, is mostly used for Air Berlin flights and has 26 check-in counters. Terminal D has 22 check-in counters and is used mostly for smaller planes. The lower level of Terminal D houses Terminal E, which has only two check-in counters.
If you have arranged for a car hire from Berlin Tegel Airport, the pick up is relatively easy. You will find all car rental service desks located on the lower level of the airport in Terminal E with the car pick-up/drop-off area only a short distance away.

While parking can be challenging within Berlin city centre, it is not impossible. You will find parking zones within the more challenging areas of the city, for instance the inner-city and the old town centre. Here you must buy a ticket to park, and the price is dependent upon where you park. Outside of these zones, parking is free if you can find a spot.
Because the centre of Berlin is a designated environmental zone, the car you are driving must meet certain emission standards in order to be driven within the city centre. Cars that meet such standards will be granted an environment badge. Please ask the supplier of your rental for more information. There are many car parks and park-and-ride stations available for those who wish to park for a reasonable fee and take public transportation into Berlin's centre.
