Getting to the AIP
By bus and train
You can find the most convenient connection for you on the VBB website (Destination: Potsdam, Sternwarte).
Tickets can be purchased before boarding the bus and train stations (ATM) or directly on the bus. If you buy your ticket from the ticket machine, please make sure to use the ticket puncher to validate the ticket before entering the bus or the train.
Arriving by car
Potsdam is located southwest of Berlin. From Berlin you can reach us by car if you take the A 115 to the exit Potsdam-Babelsberg from the Nuthe-Expressway to the exit Friedrich-List-Straße. Follow the road "Alt Nowawes“ straight uphill until you see the entrance to the AIP on the right hand side. Please note that the entrance is located on the road "Allee nach Glienicke“ not the postal address "An der Sternwarte"!
Berlin has one airport: the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER). From there, 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 will cost around €65 and take about 45 minutes. Renting a car for two days costs approximately €160.
