Using Public Transport in Berlin

Berlin public transport can be expensive when buying a ticket on a daily base. However, the ICD will provide you a proof of a study placement which in addition to your valid student ID, can get a monthly ticket at the reduced rate of €54 (for unlimited trips on trains, buses and trams). The transport network is comprehensive, and trains run all night on Friday and Saturdays. On other nights, for the few hours they are not running, night buses travel the train line routes.
