Train station of the future

For most professionals, a short and uncomplicated journey to the workplace has long been an important part of a good work-life balance. The nearest Ostkreuz station is only 650 metres away from our Ostkreuz Campus. The station, which was completely rebuilt between 2016 and 2018 while remaining in operation, is becoming one of the most important stations in Berlin. This is because it already has the most train stops in Germany and is the busiest transfer station in Berlin, with around 250,000 visitors and travellers per day. No wonder, after all, nine S-Bahn, ten regional train, four long-distance train and six bus lines stop here. Transport connections to BER Airport and Berlin Central Station are also available.

The two new entrance halls ensure short distances from the surrounding city quarters to the trains, which are located directly under the upper platforms in the north and south and have exits in all directions. There is also direct access from Marktstraße and Hauptstraße. Bicycles can be transported in the barrier-free station, which is equipped with ten lifts, and people with limited mobility can easily get on, off and change trains here. By the way, an organic supermarket, a bakery and a bookshop are open in the station from early in the morning until late in the evening for quick everyday errands and physical well-being.
