How to come to Berlin[edit]

Berlin has two main airports: Tegel (TXL) and Schönefeld (SXF). Depending on your city of departure and flight company, you will land in one of these. Tegel is closer to the city and you will reach the venue in about 40min, when Schönefeld is more distant and you may need around 1 hour in public transport to reach the venue.

The main international train station is Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Central Station).

You can also come to Berlin by bus, using one of the long-trip bus companies. Several stops are possible: if possible, we advise you to arrive at Hauptbahnhof (Central Station) or Alexanderplatz.
