Being right now the biggest airport construction site in Europe, Brandenburg Airport will become the central hub for air traffic to and from Germany's capital, Berlin. Having started in 2006, construction is expected to be completed and opened in October 2011. After Brandenburg Airport opens, the last remaining airport, Tegel, will be closed and all flights concentrated on the new site. That way, the capacity of the Berlin airport be extended to up to 30 million people per year.
The airport will be an integrated site of movement and transportation connecting international and domestic flights with railroad and public transport networks. Travelling is supposed to become a lot clearer and easier, as all airlines, such as Lufthansa, Airberlin or Ryanair, will be bundled at one place.
Check the official airport site for details about airport arrivals, departures and other traveler information.
Coming to Berlin
Being a center for politics, arts, media, science and culture, the city is bustling with things to do and see. If you're planning to visit, there are a variety of options for apartments in Berlin, Berlin hotels or Berlin hostels to choose from.
Have a stroll along the East-Side-Gallery, the remains of the Berlin Wall, trace Berlin's vibrant past at Brandenburger Tor, Alexanderplatz or at Checkpoint Charlie, the former border crossing between the eastern and western part of the city.
Enjoy trendy and alternative night life places in Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain or enjoy a walk in one of the many city parks, such as Tiergarten. If you need a rest, escape the center and visit the magnificent chateau Sanssouci at close-by Potsdam, or if the weather permits go swimming at Wannsee or Muggelsee at the outskirts of the center.
