The majority of national and international bus services to and from Berlin are handled at the Central Bus Station ZOB, the larger of the two international bus stations in Berlin. The ZOB is located in the district of Charlottenburg, opposite the International Congress Center ICC and the exhibition grounds under the Funkturm.

The second major bus station is located at Ostbahnhof in the district of Friedrichshain, east of Alexanderplatz. From Ostbahnhof, Berlin's central station (Hauptbahnhof) can be reached within ten minutes by S-Bahn.

Traveling in Berlin

Berlin has an excellent public transport network. You can get almost anywhere by using the U-Bahn (subway), S-Bahn (suburban railway), bus or tram. The innercity zone is classified as Berlin A/B.

All tickets can be purchased at ticket machines located on platforms and stops. Make sure to validate your ticket before boarding an U- or S-Bahn (little red validating machines located alongside ticket machines). Tram and bus tickets can be validated inside the vehicle.
