Travel to Berlin
The Central Bus Station is located in Berlin Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, in the western part of the city. Berlin is well connected by bus with other larger cities in Germany and in Europe. Detailed information and time tables can be found on the ZOB Berlin website. Also check the website of your preferred bus company.
Right in front of the ZOB is a bus stop, and the bus line 139 stops there.
About 200m away from the ZOB, in western direction, is the S Messe Nord/ICC train stop for the Berlin S-Bahn. The commuter trains S41 (a train circling Berlin in clock-wise direction), S42 (circling Berlin counter-clockwise) and S46 stop here, as well as busses 139, 218, A05, M49, X34 and X49.
Berlin is well connected on the German motorway system.
- from South: the A13
- from South-West: the A9
- from West: the A2
- from North-West: the A24
- from North-East: the A11
- from East: the A12
All these motorways lead to the A10, which is the motorway ring around Berlin. From there, smaller motorways diverge into the city. The inner zone of Berlin city (actually the part inside of the "S-Bahn Ring", where the S41 and S42 circle Berlin) is an environmental protection area. A so called "Umweltplakette" ("green sticker") is required on any vehicle which wants to enter the zone. German cars should already have one of the green, yellow, red of black stickers. Drivers of foreign vehicles can obtain a sticker online. More details on the berlin.de website. Driving a car without having a green sticker can result in a fine of 80€.
The venue has a parking garage, the entrance is on "Ebertstraße 1-3, 10117 Berlin", next to the restaurant "Midtown Grill". Look for an overhead parking sign.

- Sony Center: 10785, Ben-Gurion-Straße, 10785 Berlin
- CONTIPARK: Voßstraße 13-15, 10117 Berlin
Berlin currently has two operational airports:
