Getting to the Telegrafeberg:

 

By plane

Berlin has two airports: the Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF) airport and the Berlin-Tegel (TXL) airport. From both airports you can reach the AIP by public transport (see below) and also by taking a taxi or renting a car.
A taxi from the airport Berlin-Tegel will cost around €50 and take about 30 minutes, while one from the airport Berlin-Schönefeld will take more time (about 45 minutes) and therefore be more expensive (around €65). Renting a car for two days costs approximately €160.

 

 

Arriving from the Berlin- Schönefeld (SXF) airport

You can take the train from the airport Schönefeld to Potsdam. The walk from the terminal to the tracks takes about 10 minutes. While the regional express train (RB 22) goes directly to Potsdam central station, you will have to change trains if you instead take the S-Bahn. Please note that the bus 691 is available only on weekdays. You can find the most convenient connection for you on the BVG website (Destination: Potsdam, Telegrafenberg)

A taxi from the airport Berlin Schönefeld will take about 45 minutes to the AIP and cost around € 65.

 

 

Arriving from the Berlin-Tegel (TXL) airport

Right in front of the airport are the bus stations for the X9 and 109 buses, both heading to the train station "Bahnhof Zoo". You can go with either of these two lines to the last stop and continue on from there by train. Either take the "Regionalexpress RE1" or the S-Bahn (S7). When you arrive in Potsdam continue your journey by bus number 691 till the last stop "Telegrafenberg". When you get off you will be standing in front of the building H; please go back down to the entrance gate at the Albert-Einstein-Straße. You can find the most convenient connection for you on the side of the BVG (Destination: "Potsdam, Telegrafenberg").
A taxi from the Berlin-Tegel airport will cost around €50 and take about 30 minutes.
