Getting to Berlin
Berlin enjoys a very well-connected, relatively inexpensive, and efficient public transportation system. There are two main airports in the city: Berlin Tegel (TXL), located in the northwest and Berlin Schoenefeld (SXF), located in the southeast. Both are international airports. Various bus connections are available from Berlin Tegel Airport to Berlin city centre, making the airport very well integrated in Berlin's public transport network. You can get around the city using the Metro, bus, bike or taxi.


The average daily temperature this month hovers around 5°C (around 41°F), inching toward the heart of winter. Be sure to pack the cold weather gear, including heavy coat or jacket and maybe even a pair of gloves, hat and scarf to keep your hands and face warm. At the coldest parts of the day, like the overnight and early morning hours, the lows drop down to almost-freezing, hitting 2°C (about 36°F).
