Berlin’s public transport is great. It is convenient and cheap. Many visitors to Berlin are, however, afraid to use it because they worry it is complicated.
Don’t worry. Berlin’s underground trains, trams and busses are safe and easy. Watch this quick guide to see how easy it is to buy U-Bahn tickets.
Just be sure to remember that once you’ve bought your Bahn tickets that you validate them. The city has crews of ticket inspectors checking and a common experience of many visitors to Berlin is being “controlled” (a rather direct translation for the German term) for having tickets that weren’t stamped. It is also no good trying to argue. In their view traveling with a U-bahn ticket that isn’t stamped is as good as having no ticket at all.
