Tickets & Timetables

Tickets

The S-Bahn in Berlin is a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn and is part of the Transport Association Berlin-Brandenburg VBB. Therefore S-Bahn tickets are also valid for buses, the U-Bahn, trams and vice versa. Tickets are available at ticket machines on the platforms or at sales points in the major stations.

Timetables

On weekdays, the S-Bahn starts running around 4.30 a.m. and stops service at 1.30 a.m. Depending on the time of day the trains run in five -, ten - or 20-minute intervals. On weekends, S-Bahn trains run 24 hours, at night in 30 minute intervals.

Important S-Bahn Lines:

East-West Traffic

A central axis of Berlin's transport system is the east-west line of the S-Bahn which connects the stations Westkreuz and Ostkreuz. In peak periods and under ideal conditions the trains S3, S5, S7 and S75 run in three minute intervals. The section between the stations Zoo and Alexanderplatz is especially worth seeing. There, the S-Bahn passes landmarks like the Victory Column, Central Station, Museum Island and Hackescher Markt.

North-South Traffic

Important north-south-lines of the S-Bahn are the line S1 between Oranienburg and Wannsee and the S2 which runs between Bernau and Blankenfelde.

S-Bahn Ring / Ringbahn

The so-called Ringbahn runs around Berlin's city centre on a route of about 37 kilometres. It stops at 27 stations and needs approximately 60 minutes to circle around the city.
Many stations of the Ringbahn have links to S-and U-Bahn lines running to the city centre or outskirts of Berlin. Important junctions of the ring bahn are the stations Westkreuz, Gesundbrunnen Ostkreuz and Südkreuz.
The ring bahn consists of the S-Bahn lines S41 and S42: S41 moves clockwise, the S42 anticlockwise. The trains run throughout the day, during the rush hour in five-minute intervals, in the evening in ten-minute intervals.
