Getting around on a shoestring

Berlin is a huge, sprawling city, so you’ll need to take public transportation. Luckily, it is plentiful; you’ll find subways, trains, trams, buses, bikes, and taxis. The U-Bahn, S-Bahn, bus, tram, and regional rail all use the same ticket. Don’t forget to validate your ticket before entering the train. 

Single One-Way Ticket: €2.60
Short Distance (three stop) Single One-Way Ticket: €1.50
Day Card: €6.70
Small Group Ticket (for up to five people — this is the most cost-effective for three people and above): €16.20
Bike Rental: €8-€12/day
Bus between Tegel Airport and City Center: €2.40
Taxi Between Tegel Airport and City Center: €20–€25
Berlin Schönefeld Airport Express Train: €3

To travel without restrictions through the city on public transport and visit the popular sights and attractions, you can purchase the Berlin WelcomeCard. It can be conveniently ordered online. Read about what the card can offer you here
