Berlin’s sheer size and vast number of attractions can be overwhelming for the first time visitor, but don’t worry – traveling around the city is an easy task. Here’s a few tips to get you started.

Berlin’s public transport network is extensive and includes buses, trams, the U-Bahn (subway) and the S-Bahn, Regionalbahn (RB) and Regionalexpress (RE) trains.
