Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF)
(Berlin, Germany DE)
Sited within Brandenburg's suburb of Schönefeld, this airport is set for a meteoric rise in status, when in 2011 it will become the much-expanded, new look Berlin Brandenburg International Airport. This will be an amalgam of all three of the city's airports - Schönefeld, Tegel and Tempelhof. Currently Schönefeld Airport (SXF) enjoys fairly reasonable annual passenger traffic of around seven million, although this is expected to soar over the next few years.
Schönefeld Airport is easy to reach and lies around 18 km / 11 miles to the south-east of central Berlin, next to the areas of Bohnsdorf, Kienberg, Schulzendorf and Wassmanndorf. Onsite, the four terminals are home to just over 30 airlines, which fly to almost 100 different European destinations.
Close to the A100, Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF) is easy to reach by road. Taxis, limos and rental cars are all available onsite and link the suburbs of Fürstenwalde Spree, Königs Wusterhausen and Wildau. Buses are also available, along with Schönefeld Airport Express trains, which are connected by a covered walkway and run to the Hauptbahnhof (main rail station) in less than 30 minutes, terminating at the Berlin Spandau station, just past the Zoologischer Garten.
About Berlin Tourism
Germany's modern capital city lies in eastern Germany and relatively close to the Polish border. Berlin is a particularly green city and is filled with gardens and large parks, such as the Friedrichsfelde, Grunewald and the centrally located Tiergarten Park, a vast public park once used by German royalty for hunting.
Nearby Schönefeld Airport (SXF) offers good access to Berlin city centre and is close to many of the city's leading attractions. These include the iconic Brandenburg Gate, the new government district and the Reichstag, Museum Island, Checkpoint Charlie, the Berliner Dom (Cathedral) and the Potsdamer Platz, a trendy public square full of life and excitement.
