Take a taxi in Berlin

Berlin is one of the European cities that receives the most tourism every year, and Germany is a very interesting country in every way. On some occasion we have already told you about Berlin and many of its places of interest, so today I would like to focus on transport, specifically in the taxi.

In Berlin you can move in different means of transport but I would like to focus on taxis since it is very certain that sooner or later you will end up taking one on some occasion. This is all the information you need to know to take a taxi in Berlin :

– Although there are many stops and special places to catch them, you can also stop them on the street . They are white and carry a small identification placard.

– They are very safe and have a fixed rate of € 3.50 for journeys of less than two kilometers. To be eligible for this rate, you have to tell the taxi driver as soon as you get on using the word “Kurzstrecke”.

– The prices are not much more expensive than in Spain and, for example, from the Schoenefeld or Tegel airports it will cost you about € 25 to go to the center of Berlin. The most recommended thing is that if you take a taxi at the airport, ask how much it will cost you before leaving, because if it tells you much more than that number, it is best to get off and ask someone else.

– When you get into a taxi, wherever it is, make sure that the taxi driver has perfectly understood where you want to go so that there is no problem in the middle of the road since maybe you do not speak German or that the taxi driver does not speak another language very well there can be confusion and waste time in a career that will be worthless.
