Getting around Berlin by car

Should you, despite ideal public transport options, decide to discover the city by car, be aware that the Berlin city council has introduced an environmental zone which restricts the amount of traffic permitted within the central area in an effort to reduce pollution. The zone is defined as the area within the suburban rail ring. Only vehicles which meet strict emission standards are permitted to travel within this area.

All drivers wishing to travel within this area (including foreign cars) must purchase and display a colour coded badge or incur a fine of 40,00€. Please order the environmental badge online prior to travelling to Berlin to avoid charges. Drive safely and buckle up.

Sightseeing in Berlin by taxi

If you are in need of a cab, you can ask the friendly reception staff to order a cab for you. They'd be happy to help.
