Transport to the conference venue

Arrival by public transportation

Berlin has a very efficient public transportation system which consists of several integrated elements, including S-Bahn (train) and U-Bahn (subway), Tram (streetcar) and a bus network. It covers the city of Berlin and 15 kilometres beyond the city boundaries.
There are three ticket zones:

  • Zone A - central parts of the city
