Would anyone be able to give me any bus/train/taxi alternatives/times between TXL and THF (Berlin Tegel and Berlin Templehof), on a Friday mid-afternoon please? I have about 4 hours to kill. Thanks.
Spencer.

Taxi should be the fastest, as there's a motorway from one airport to the other. Depending on traffic about 20 minutes, IIRC about 25 Euros.

For public transport, check the Berlin public transport authority's website, it'll give you exact times (provided the busses aren't stopped in traffic).

For THF enter "U Platz der Luftbruecke" - for TXL enter "Flughafen Tegel." Should be about 30-40 minutes and under 3 Euros.

i've done it in ten minutes and when I think about Berlins taxi drivers, they might do it in 5 minutes  Wink

Spencer: If you go by taxi please don't think all Germans are like the taxi drivers are. Most of us are close to that but not that unfriendly Big grin

Impressive! My record was from Rathenauplatz in Grunewald to TXL (not the terminal, but LH's FOC to the north of the airport) in 7 minutes... but that was back in 1991/92.

Of course, if Spencer wants to go to the spotting hill on Oderstrasse at THF rather than the terminal, his route is going to be different. (U Hermannstrasse, instead of Platz der Luftbruecke, if I'm not mistaken.) You can see it rather nicely on Google Maps. Just be aware that there's a Northern and Southern part to Oderstrasse, you want the Southern bit.

When will you be in Berlin anyway? I'll be in town July 15-25, and I hope to spend at least a little time spotting, though it's mainly catching up with old friends and keeping my son entertained...

Bus 128 to Kurt Schumacher Platz. U6 direction Alt-Mariendorf to Platz der Luftbrücke for the terminal. If you want to go to Hermanstraße, do all the above, but change at Mehringdamm (get a döner here) to the U7, direction Rudow. Should take you about 30 minutes or so.

I'll be up for some spotting as well, so long as it's in July.
Though I'm not gonna lie, if given the choice between TXL and THF, I'd take TXL. THF can get boring fast.

take the Bus (109 IIRC) to Jakob-Kaiser-Platz and the U7 straight to Hermannstrasse. Saves one change, and Hermannstrasse should have good Doener, too  Wink

Would be fun if there'd be some a.net group spotting in Berlin next month. I'm don't really care which airport, as either one of the three is a huge change to what I get in Nassau.

That's true. The X9 should stop there as well.
