From Dorint Airport-Hotel Berlin-Tegel it is only about 20 minutes by underground and suburban rail to the Berlin hotspots of Friedrichstrasse, Potsdam Square and the Brandenburg Gate.
But why not deviate from the standard tourist routes and discover Tegel itself instead? The northern part of the city of Berlin has much more to offer than just the airport, for example, art and loads of culture and – with Lake Tegel – a wide range of outdoor recreational activities, too. Visit Tegel Castle, former home of Humboldt brothers and erstwhile meeting point for the intellectual elite of the city. The Humboldt Library also bears witness to this era, and today is a popular venue for numerous literary events, concerts and matinees. The Russian Orthodox Church, with its magnificent interior, is a cultural and historic gem.
And did you know that in Tegel, in addition to the airport, there is also a regular port? Lake Tegel offers not only beautiful cycling and walking paths, but also numerous water sports amenities with a typical Berlin bathing beach. Or relax aboard one of the excursion boats and enjoy a trip to the Reihenwerder peninsula with the Borsig Villa. This is a mini-vacation in itself!
