    Am every time astonished how provincial and old fashioned this airport is. Especially the layout if the fates is unpractical. Each time you end standing for 30 minutes in an overcrowded corridor.

    German efficiency is no joke - quickest "immigration" I've ever been through. Off the plane and through customs etc to arrivals lounge in under 4 mins. I kid you not.

    The only one Wi-Fi is in the Starbucks cafe. Not free, not payable Wi-Fi does not respond to a lot of people's tried to connect them.

    Unlike most airports, there is no central baggage claim area. Make sure that you pick up your baggage at the gate before leaving the secure area.

    Those who complain about this airport obviously have not been to LCCT airport Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. TXL is heaven next to LCCT.

    It's all good if you depart from Terminal A. Short distances and fast boarding. Terminal C and D are a bit chaotic and improvised. A bit of a joke really for a city like Berlin.

    A very small airport (you can see the baggage claim from the immigration section) but a kinder surprise is the free Wi-Fi! Handy when waiting on a seat for your luggage.

    A tiny airport with very little in the way of shopping, food & entertainment facilities. Until the new Brandenburg superairport opens Berlin won't have a proper Flughafen.

    When flying airberlin on weekend day morning take the "2hours in advance" seriously. Checkin queues can be huuuuuuuge. When flying only with hand luggage - everything can go smoothly

    Security is odd; individual security lines for each flight that lead directly to the gate. Make sure you see an airline representative to answer "security questions" (even if you've pre-checked in).

    Hungry? Take the chance and get a burger @ Burger King before you fly. Don't forget your ADAC card if you have one and save 1€.

    This is one of the worst airports to get out. Long line and inefficient so give yourself a lot of time to catch the flight.

    Make sure you bring cash for the taxi. Not many taxis accept credit card (they have the equipment but insist on being paid by cash)

    Probably one of the most boring airports I've been to. There is a separate baggage return/immigration/security check point for each gate and it's really not the most efficient setup.

    Old school airport. If you are a compulsive early bird as I am, make sure you bring a book to read past the check in desk :-)

    I like small airports, makes you don't walk forever to reach your gate. But, be there there early coz you will find a long que at the check in counters.

    Welcome. Take a moment: wish the beloved Tegel Airport a fond farewell. She's soon to be gone. And on your way home, luxuriate in the fact you can check in 30min before takeoff with no hassle. Ciao. Read more

    Being left in the middle of the field to take a bus to the terminal is never a good start, and Germans looking for reasons to put you in place. Definitely a well organized "function over form" airport

    Airport that goes 'round and round'. Unfortunately couldn't get any wi-fi at Terminal C (which is a small one, do your shopings beforehand as after security controls there's only 2 duty free shops).

    Cabs to Berlin Mitte cost about €20. Traffic is low compared to, say, London or Paris. A 20 minute ride.

    One of my favorite airports. Compact and well connected to Berlin Mitte via the TXL. Very charming airport that will be missed when the new international airport opens.

    The worst airport. Long security times, terminals separated with stairs, not enough seats at gate lounges

    If there was an award for the shittest airport, Berlin Tegel will win it by a mile.

    Please check to make sure you seat belt is securely fastened. Your seat back and tray table are in the full upright and locked position & all carry-on luggage is placed completely underneath the seat.

    For most flights you need very little time to clear security as the security is very few gates

    Don't worry about heading to the gate too early. All the shops and restaurants are pre-security and publicly accessible
