Berlin Central Station

Berlin Central Station is the central hub for all rail traffic in the capital. Here inter-city and regional trains connect with Berlin's local rail, underground, tram and bus network. S-Bahn lines S5, S7 and S75 link the Central Station with the east and west of the city. The U55 U-Bahn line connects the station to the government district and leads directly to the Brandenburg Gate.
