Berlin – away from the hustle and bustle


If you want to discover the other side of Berlin other than the Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt and Alexanderplatz, you’re in the right place in the Southeast! Experience pure industrial history and nature. Berlin Treptow-Köpenick is the largest district of Berlin and, at the same time, is the most forest and water-rich. We Berliners love to sail across the lake, jog in the forest, swim in the Müggelsee as well as discover new things or relax at an inn.

The Airporthotel Berlin Adlershof is a perfect starting point for exploration. With its good connection to the S-Bahn, bus and tram, you can reach the sights and the city centre quickly and easily. Additionally, our hotel is only a 10-minute drive from airport Berlin-Brandenburg BER.
