Corona testing centers in Berlin

Suspected cases

If you suspect that you are infected with SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (e.g., if you are experiencing symptoms or have had 1st degree contact), you should contact your local health department for clarification or testing.

Several Berlin hospitals have established special Corona testing centers to test suspected cases. Please find out in advance when and how to get to the test center and observe the protective measures on your way there.

The screening centers are:

    Persons who do not have symptoms who require testing should contact their local (district) health department (especially after contact with a known COVID-19 case). Persons returning to/entering the country should please contact the testing center at BER Airport, Terminal 5 or the associated medical practices of the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians Berlin after entering the country.

    The SARS-CoV-2 outpatient clinic of the Charité also offers video consultation especially for cases which are initially unclear. You need to make an appointment for a video consultation. If necessary, an appointment for a test (at the Virchow Clinic) can be arranged for the same or the following day.

Regulations concerning costs

The assumption of the costs for the test is regulated uniformly throughout Germany. If a test is necessary from a medical point of view, or from the point of view of the public health department, the costs for the SARS coronavirus-2 test (according to the Coronavirus Test Ordinance € 50.50 for the PCR test) are covered by the health insurance companies. People without German health insurance would have to clarify cost coverage directly with their insurance provider.

COVID-19 doctors’ practices

Several doctors’ practices in Berlin have agreed to treat patients who have COVID-19 symptoms and suspect they are infected and who are unable to contact their own doctor. The COVID-19 practices have taken the necessary corona protective measures and ensure that the patients are treated separately.

The Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians Berlin (Kassenärztliche Vereinigung) provides information on its website about the “locations of these practices and the requirements for treatment“https://www.kvberlin.de/fuer-patienten/corona/covid-19-praxen.

Please note that the COVID-19 doctors’ practices are intended for patients with coronavirus symptoms. Testing options for people returning to/entering the country from risk areas who do not have symptoms have been listed separately by the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians in a PDF (786 KB).

Rapid tests

For their own protection and the protection of others, Berliners are encouraged to get a rapid test once a week. For this purpose, the Senate has created an additional service – free, weekly rapid corona tests for all Berliners, including free PCR retesting if necessary.

The testing centers are open daily from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, with the exception of the testing centers in Weissensee (Rathaus Weißensee), Spandau (Schönwalder Str.) and Steglitz-Zehlendorf (Kirchstr.). These are open from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm. You will receive a certificate showing that you have been tested.
