Short trip to Berlin starting at the international Berlin Tegel (TXL) Airport

From Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL) you get easily to the city by taking a bus and then change to the subway. Although the airport is not connected directly to the subway train system, getting around with public transportation is easy. Day pass tickets can be bought with the “BVG Berlin tickets” app in advance which saves time an arrival.

A good place to start discovering the city is Alexanderplatz. Many of the attractions are close by.

The city is rich in history and the most populated city in Germany.
