    Terminal C got very crowded by the time my flight departed (on a Sunday afternoon). Also the TXL bus got more than full for the last stations nearing the airport.

    There's pretty much nothing after the security. So do your eating and shopping on the public side. Very boring.

    You can get tax free cash refund in terminal A rather quickly (unfortunately, it’ll be 3€ for each form!). Don’t expect to find good duty free in terminal C, it’s tiny and absurd

    Shitty airport, sorry to say. Long lines at security, too many small spaces. With a few delayed flights the place is overcrowded. Lounges are before security; very strange and not practical at all..

    Absolutely ridiculous airport. When entering the boarding area you have nothing to do, nothing good to eat and 4 ladies toilets. Not the standard you would expect from a European capital.

    Make sure you use the bathroom before getting off the plane. There is no restroom at Custom or the baggage claim area. Restrooms are in arrival hall after you exit the baggage claim.

    Super complicated to get around and not fully wheelchair accessible. There is an entire floor you can not get to if you can't walk.

    Everybody is just standing around waiting to enter their gates (since there are hardly any chairs to sit on), making it hard for others to pass. Airport is way too small for the amount of people.

    Taxis can sometimes be hard to find. The TXL bus comes very frequently and doesn’t take so long to Berlin Hauptbahnhof.

    You cannot dislike this airport. It's a very functional one. Minimum walking, waiting and seeking. Also, close to no shopping at all, so be prepared. Catch a flight even if you are terribly late.

    The worst airport ever. Still the same like during DDR period in 1980s. Wifi only for 1 hour, no restaurants, no shops, no plugs. Berliner airport represents the worst as well as German politicians.
