- Arriving by bus to Berlin
If you are travelling to Berlin using long-distance coaches, you will probably arrive at the central bus station (Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof), located next to the international fairground.
Guide yourself to the metro (subway) station "Kaiserdamm", about 5 minutes of walk from the bus station. Inside the station, you will find a ticket machine, where you should buy a single ticket AB. Use this map for your orientation.
Use the metro U2, direction "Pankow" and get off the train at the station "Zoologischer Garten". At the station, guide yourself to the platforms, where the regional trains are departing (upper level of the station). For your orientation, a map is available here. Before, you should buy a ticket to Frankfurt (Oder), ticket machines and counters are located in the hall of the station's main building.
You should take the RegionalExpress 1 (RE 1), with destination to Frankfurt (Oder) or Eisenhüttenstadt. The trains depart every 30 minutes and the journey time will be about 1h30. Please make sure, that you leave the train at the (main) train station of Frankfurt (Oder), not (!!) at the stop "Frankfurt (Oder)-Rosengarten.
