Just like the current Berlin Schönefeld Airport, it can be reached from our region in just a few minutes’ drive on the outstanding Autobahn network or a short ride on the Berlin S-Bahn system, making it the ideal location to reach the rest of the world from here.
The A12 Autobahn crosses the region from west to east and is the primary motorway connection to Berlin and Eastern Europe. To the west, the A12 meets the 6-lane A10, the Berlin outer loop, from which it links to the wider Western European transit network. Find the route with Google Maps here.
