Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Berlin University
(Berlin, Germany)

Berlin is linked to other German cities by the autobahn, the third-largest superhighway in the world. This long stretch of highway connects Berlin to all the major German cities, Czech Republic, and Poland. Using the toll-free autobahn makes driving to Berlin easy and fast because it has at least four lanes in each directions. The 'minimum' speed limits on the autobahn are closely monitored and strictly followed by native motorists. Berlin is surrounded by the A10 motorway. It is connected to Stettin, Poland by the A11, to Frankfurt by the A12, to Dresden by the A13, to Leipzig by the A9, to Hannover by the A2, and to Hamburg by the A24.

Because of the autobahn, visitors with cars can easily get to Berlin from any German city. The autobahn has signposts that can direct them to the different exits of the superhighway. The main motorways in Berlin are the A100 and A111, which are connected to the city's airports. Visitors who want to rent a car can do so in any of the city's three airports. The car rental services on standby offer vehicles that can be rented for a day.
