Public Transport Berlin Reviews
Getting to and from Tegel airport in Berlin Oct 26, 2013
If you fly in/out of the Tegel airport in Berlin, it is easy to get to town by public transportation, such as the TXL bus. We stayed at a hotel near Alexanderplatz and right on the route of TXL bus, which runs every few minutes. It was super convenient to take it to go to the airport. And since we had purchased the Berlin Welcome Card, which included public transportation on bus, U-bahn and S-bahn, it did not even cost us any extra to go to the airport (which was in the AB zone).
We also took a bus from TXL airport to Dresden and back. It took maybe half an hour more than the train, but cost a lot less (20 euro if you buy the ticket on the bus, or 18 if you buy online).
So if you will be getting around Berlin in a short stay, it pays to invest in the Welcome Card and take public transportation.

Public Transport Berlin Jul 09, 2011
We stayed at a Hotel in Hoppergarten. With the S5 it took us about 20 - 30 minutes (depending on where we got off) to get to Berlin.
In Berlin the bus/metro network is really great. Every couple of minutes there is a bus or metro. So you never have to wait for long.
We took a 2 day WelcomeCard. This card cost us 16.90 euro's, p.p. We could use the card for 2 days in A & B area. Besides that you also get a lot of discounts with this card at museums and oter touristic stuff. We only used it for transport.
You can also get a day card for 6.80 (I thought it was somewhere around that price...)
A & B area means
A area is the centre of the city
B area are the outskirts of the city
You can also buy a card for the C area. C area are the city's close to Berlin like Potsdam and Oranienburg.
S-Bahn, the metro who is mostley above the ground.
U-bahn, the metro mostely under the ground and drives shorter distances.
Bus 100 drives alongside al the main (famous) seigth seing stuff.
We took the bus, it cost us 2.80 fo the bolth of us. This is a one wa ticket. It took us about 8 minutes to get to the trainstation of Hoppergarten.
From there we took the train to Berlin. The train goes 3 times an hour, so every 20 minutes.
Beware in weekends the bus doesn't drive that often only a couple times a day. You can park your car next to the trainstation so if you go by car to Hoppergarten you can get to the trainstation by car.
