25th Congress of the International Society for Sandplay Therapy“Dreaming with the Hands“

By plane

Flying is often the fastest and cheapest way of travelling to Berlin. Both Tegel and Schönefeld Airport can be reached easily and quickly from the city's centre, and are optimally integrated into the airlines' national and international route network.

Route planning by Berlin Airport


By car

Berlin can conveniently be reached by using the motorways. Thus travelling by car or coach is another option.

Please note that you need an environmental badge for you car because the centre of Berlin is an environmental zone.

Route planning by google maps


By train

The German railway network links Berlin with all major German and European destinations. Long-distance trains to and from Berlin arrive at and depart from multiple train stations like "Berlin Hauptbahnhof" (central station), "Berlin Ostbahnhof", or "Berlin Brandenburg Airport".

Route planning by Deutsche Bahn


Local public transport

The local public transport service in Berlin and the surrounding region is also excellent, featuring train, tram, metro ("U-Bahn"), and bus services that will provide you with optimal mobility during your stay in Berlin.

The venue can be reached with a 100m walk from the bus and metro station "Freie Universität (Thielplatz)".

Public transport - BVG
