Getting There in Berlin MitteEdit This
Berlin's Central Borough
The Berlin Mitte is the most important borough of Germany's capital because of its historic importance during the events after World War II. At the BerlinMitte, you will find the Brandenburg Tor, the Reichstag and many more important tourist sites.
Getting to Berlin by Plane
Since Berlin Mitte is located in Berlin, first you most get to Berlin. The city of Berlin is served by two main airports, the Berlin-Schoenefeld (IATA code: SXF) and the Berlin-Tegel (IATA code: TXL). Most international airline companies travel to either destination. Within Europe and Germany, it is recommended to select local German airline German Wings or Irish based airline Ryan Air for the lowest fares. For the best possible prices, make sure to book your flights at least a week in advance. When flying through Ryan Air or German Wings, you will arrive to smaller terminals but don't worry, because both companies offer complimentary shuttle services to major destinations.
