31st August - 2nd September 2015, Berlin, Germany
This airport is very close to the conference venue. Take the airport shuttle bus (X9) to Ernst-Reuter Platz (15 minutes) and walk from here to the PTB (5-minute walk) or take a taxi from the airport directly to the PTB (ca. 10 minutes, ca. 20 €).
This is across the city, so a taxi is expensive unless you can share the costs (about 45 minutes; about 40 €).
There are many public transport connections with at least one change from the airport to “Zoologischer Garten”, a train and S-Bahn station close to the venue. The travel time is about one hour. One possible connection: At the S-Bahn station Flughafen Schönefeld take a regional train (RE7 or RE14) or S-Bahn (Line 9, destination Pankow) to Berlin Ostkreuz, then change at Ostkreuz to the S-Bahn (Lines 5, 7 and 75) in direction of Zoologischer Garten. Leave the train at Zoologischer Garten. From there you can walk to the conference venue via Hardenbergstraße and Ernst-Reuter-Platz (walking distance: 15 minutes), take a bus (M45, 245, or X9) or you can stop a taxi and take a fixed rate short ride (4€ for up to 2km).
At Berlin Hauptbahnhof take a regional train or S-Bahn (any line in direction of Charlottenburg, Westkreuz (Line S75), Potsdam (Line S7) or Spandau (Line S5)) to Zoologischer Garten.
