Eurolines and Flixbus have regular schedules of coaches to Berlin from London, all involving one connection at cities such as Brussels, Rotterdam, Dortmund, Cologne, Paris and Prague.

Travelling by coach to Berlin is straightforward and considerably cheaper than making the journey by train. Also, it does not involve the lengthy check-in times required when flying.

Coaches are modern and comfortable with onboard services that include toilets, individual power outlets, and wifi.
Berlin is a fascinating city of glamour, culture and history with plenty of conventional attractions to enjoy. If, however, you like something a little different to do that won't break your budget why not take the Berlin Underground Tour. Get a different perspective on the city as you wander through abandoned WWII bunkers and escape tunnels. Carrying on the theme of recent history is the DDR Museum that documents life in the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany). It's a fascinating insight into how its residents lived and the transport they used. Berlin has an extensive public transport network and a variety of ticket options depending on your length of stay and plans. The city is well-covered by S-Bahn and U-Bahn (underground) trains, buses and trams.
