Riding Black?

Hey! That’s a €40 fine buddy!
As a veteran of not paying for metro services here is some advice.

Metro guards carry credit card readers and enforce laws like only Germans can.

So instead of sweating bullets trying to come up with a story about how you lost your passport and wallet (which should now be stuffed into your cowboy boots) just fork out the shrapnel and do it the right way.
…having said that, I’ve been been caught once in the last five years.

Coach

• Coach terminal of Berlin, ZOB (Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof), is located in the Western part of the city.
• Most coaches within Germany will have power outlets and wifi…that counts for a lot!

Ferry

By ship you need to get to Hamburg and then take the train to Berlin. The German bullet train ICE takes about 1,5 hours to get from Hamburg to Berlin Hauptbahnhof (main train station). After you arrived here, follow the directions under “Train“.

Space Ship

Serious?
Of course you are! 

Why let a trivial issue like being in space or colonising Mars hold you from BBE?

We do, however, hope you are wearing a lot of red right now since we don’t know of any space shuttle landing stations near Berlin. Perhaps Templehof is your best bet?
