The workshop will take place at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) - Telegraphenberg, Potsdam. The meeting will be held in the conference room of building A56 (see the map below).
Getting to the workshop
Airport to PIK
If you are coming to Berlin by air, you will most probably arrive at Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL). Outside the airport buildings you will find public buses (BVG). There are two buses you can take: X9 (to Zoologischer Garten) or 109 (to Charlottenburg station). In both cases you then need to get on an S-Bahn or Regio (RE) train to Potsdam Hbf.
If you arrive at Airport Schönefeld (SFX) the fastest way to get to Potsdam Hbf is to take the Regional Train from the airport direct to Potsdam Hbf. It leaves once an hour.
To reach Potsdam, you need only one ticket, a Berlin-ABC ticket (it costs 3.40 EUR). You can obtain it from the bus driver or at the underground or S-Bahn station at a ticket machine. When obtaining your ticket from the ticket machine, please make sure to validate your ticket by stamping it (red box, next to the ticket machine) before entering the train. If you buy the ticket from the bus driver it is valid immediately. The ticket is valid for 2 hours, and can also be used to travel on buses and trams within Potsdam.
If arriving late, you might want to check the time tables beforehand here.
PIK to Airport
To reach the Berlin airports from PIK, you can walk or catch a bus to the Potsdam Hbf, and there you can take regional trains (RE or RB) towards Berlin and change to a connecting bus/train to your airport.
Bus 691 – Direction: Potsdam Hbf
The bus leaves every 20 minutes at :01, :21 and :41 past the hour (from in front of the PIK canteen). The first Bus is at 15:01. For those leaving earlier, you have to walk (20 minutes) to Potsdam main station. It is very easy.
To reach Schönefeld Airport (SFX) – take the bus (or walk) to Potsdam Hbf, and then the RB train directly to Schönefeld Airport from platform 3 (this train runs only once per hour). The travel time is approx 1 hour. Alternatively, you can catch the RE train to Berlin Hbf, and then a connecting train to Schönefeld Airport. This option takes approx 1.5 hours.
To reach Tegel Airport (TXL) - take the bus (or walk) to Potsdam Hbf, and then change at Potsdam Hbf to the RE train (stopping at several stations in Berlin) from platform 4. Take the RE train to Charlottenburg, and then change to Bus 109 towards Flughafen (Airport) Tegel. The travel time is approx 1 hour and 10 mins.
