Public Transport

Nearest Station to the fairgrounds is S Messe Süd. Choosing this station to arrive at LinuxTag you need to take one of the following lines:

  • S 9
  • S 75

When coming from the east (e. g. from Alexander Platz or Berlin Hauptbahnhof), you need to take these lines in direction to "Spandau", otherwise to "Flughafen Schönefeld" respectively "Wartenberg".

When the S-Bahn Ring is easy to reach for you, you can take the Ringbahn (lines S 41 and S 42, S 41 runs in clockwise direction, the S 42 is the counterpart) to S Westend and change there for the lines S 9 or S 75 in direction to "Spandau".


When not coming from tarif zone C (you'll know when), the best choice is an AB Ticket for public transport services.

  • The standard ticket ("Einzelfahrausweis") costs 2.10 € and is valid for two hours but just for one direction!
  • A day ticket is available for 6.10 € and is valid for the whole day and until 3 a.m. of the next day. The day ticket is worth it when you want to travel to the LinuxTag and may want to explore the city or attend the LinuxNight also.
  • When your hotel is very near to the fairgrounds you can maybe also use a short trip ticket. With 1.30 € you can go 3 Stations by S-Bahn and Underground Train and 6 Stations by Bus and Tram.
