Berlin city centre is easily accessible from the SXF Berlin-Schönefeld Airport via the S-Bahn and, for a real experience of Germany, there are so many great places to visit that you will be hard pushed to choose. Here are some ideas to help you narrow down your search for things to do on your layover in Berlin.



Unter den Linden


If you are short on time but want to know as much about Berlin’s history as you can learn, take a stroll along Unter den Linden. This street is dotted with monuments to the Hohenzollern Dynasty, the Third Reich and the GDR. The Brandenburg Gate is the focal point and it was a scene of celebration when the Berlin wall came down. For a fascinating step back in time, Unter den Linden is the place to go.



Museum Island


No fewer than five museums inhabit an island, known as Museum Island, on the river Spree. Modelled on ancient Greece, this monument to science and art is a sight to behold. With plenty to see from ancient treasures to modern technology, Museum Island will keep many a traveller entertained until it is time to jump back on the S-Bahn and head back to SXF Berlin-Schönefeld Airport.



Grunewald forest


If you are looking to get some activity in on your layover, stretch out those cramped, aching muscles, Grunewald forest will delight you. It is the perfect spot in Berlin for cycling, swimming, walking and horse riding and on warm sunny days the banks of the tiny lake, Teufelsee, are packed with bathers. You can also visit a Swiss-themed restaurant which contains a zoo and playground once you have burnt off some of your pent up energy.



Berliner Antik- & Flohmarkt


Shopping with a difference, if you are looking for something unique, interesting and from bygone eras the Berliner Antik- & Flohmarkt is the place to go. You can indulge yourself in rummaging through all manner of souvenirs, gifts and collector’s items looking for something that takes your fancy. There are 35 shops, restaurants and cafés in this area, which is easily accessible on the S-Bahn, and with their intriguing items for sale you will be kept very busy until you have to return to the SXF Berlin-Schönefeld Airport.



As always, make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to SXF Berlin-Schönefeld Airport in time for your connecting flight. Enjoy your transit city rather than whiling away the time leaning up against your luggage in the departures lounge.
