] lacks sufficient ground transportation to the city centre, this is a good alternative to reach Berlin.
Certainly not. SXF
is one of the few German airports to have direct access to the German Rail network.
It´s easier to get to the Berlin city centre from SXF
than from TXL
to Main Station:
30 minutes with train (one connexion); TXL
26 minutes with bus (one connexion)
to Eastern Station (city centre of East Berlin):
17 minutes with train (direct link); TXL
43 minutes with bus and train (one connexion)
to Zoo Station (city centre of West Berlin):
27 minutes with train (direct link); TXL
21 minutes with bus (direct link)
to Potsdamer Platz:
35 minutes with train (one connexion); TXL
32 minutes with bus and tube (one connection)
(All of the above are best case scenarios.)
I´m really wondering why SXF
is always perceived as the ugly duckling and doesn´t get the attention it deserves.
