In the City Ost district in half an hour

Berlin-Schönefeld Airport, SXF for short, is located in the south east of Berlin. Together with Tegel Airport it makes up the capital's two international airports. Every year about seven million passengers arrive at and depart from Schönefeld. Around 20 airlines carry visitors and Berliners to the Spree from all over Europe and other continents.

Travelling to Schönefeld Airport

Berlin's Schönefeld airport is situated in the south-east of the city, around 18km from the City Ost district. The airport is linked to the city by the S45 and S9 suburban railway lines and various regional train services, which depart every half an hour from Hauptbahnhof (main train station), Zoologischer Garten, Friedrichstrasse, Alexanderplatz and Ostbahnhof stations. The Schönefeld Airport Express runs to Schönefeld from Spandau via Zoologischer Garten, Hauptbahnhof and Ostbahnhof. The journey from Hauptbahnhof takes half an hour on the Airport Express service. In addition, the 171, 162, N46 and N60 buses stop directly outside the airport building, and the 163, 736, N46 and N60 buses stop at 'Flughafen Schönefeld' suburban railway station. From here, it's just a few minutes' walk to the terminal.
