You did not provide sufficient details for us to give recommendations: how many days? Plans to visit Potsdam? Arrive at Schoenefeld or Tegel?

Here are a few details:


One Way Ticket:

A single fare ticket (Einzelfahrschein) is valid for one person and a two hour journey through the city. Note: It is not allowed to travel towards the direction of the starting point. For that purpose a new single-ticket must be purchased.


Tariff AB: 2.80; reduced: 1.70 Euros

Tarif ABC: 3.40; reduced: 2.50 Euros

Short Distance Ticket:

A short distance ticket (Kurzstrecke) costs 1.70 Euros, reduced 1.30 Euros and and is valid for three stops with S- and U-Bahn. Changing trains is allowed. The ticket is also valid for six stops in buses and trams, but only if not changing vehicles.

Tariff for Children:

Small children up to the age of five travel without charge when accompanied. Children from 6 to 14 years can use the reduced tariff, which costs 1.70 Euros for zone AB.
