Directions

IMPORTANT: Please note, that during the summer months vast reconstruction works within the public transport system in Berlin will take place. Especially the Regionalbahn connection between Ostbahnhof and Friedrichstraße will be involved, which might affect visitors of the European Swimming Championships as well. You will find an overview about cancelled, blocked and detour connections as well as the duration of these interferences on the website of Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) and S-Bahn Berlin.
