How to find your way

Potsdam is located to the southwest of Berlin.  There are two airports, a well maintained highway, and various regional as well as long-distance trains which can transport you to Potsdam.

Arriving by Plane

If you arrive by plane, you will land at either the Berlin Tegel airport (TXL) or the Schönefeld airport (SXF).  A taxi ride from either Berlin airport to Potsdam costs about €50.

From the Tegel airport (TXL)

Infront of the Tegel airport are the bus stops for buses X9 and 109.  Both buses will take you for about a 20 minute ride to the “Zoologischer Garten” train station.  From there you take the regional express (RE).  This will take a half an hour to reach “Potsdam Hauptbahnhof” (towards Madgeburg or Brandenburg).  You can also take the S-Bahn S7 directly to “Potsdam Hauptbahnhof”.  The tram leaves every ten minutes from “Zoologischer Garten” to Potsdam.

From the Schönefeld airport (SXF)

From the airport a regional train (RB) runs to Potsdam.  You can also take the S-Bahn line S9 towards Spandau.  At the “West Cross” station you then change to the S7 to “Potsdam Hauptbanhof”.  At the railway stations “Ostbahnhof”, “Big Ben”, “Frederick Street”, “Berlin Hauptbanhof” or “Zoolischer Gaten” you can take the RE Regional Express to “Postdam Hauptbanhof”.
