Direct train from Berlin Airport to Leipzig?

Is there any way to do this without a transfer? My mother is elderly and traveling on her own.

    Hi Judy,

    I'm sorry, however, there are no direct trains from the Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF) to Leipzig. There is only a small local station at the Schönefeld Airport serviced only by trains from city of Berlin. Therefore, your mother would have to commute into the city of Berlin in order to connect to a train to Leipzig. Trains from the Schönefeld Airport to the Berlin Hbf station take about 30 minutes in duration and depart twice every hour. The Hbf station is the main station in Berlin, where trains to Leipzig would depart from. Tickets for the trains from Schönefeld Airport to the city of Berlin can only be purchased locally upon arrival.

    You would purchase tickets for a train from Berlin to Leipzig by searching the route under 'Find Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    Trains from Berlin to Leipzig are either ICE (InterCity Express) trains or IC (InterCity) trains.

    Generally, trains in Germany now can be booked within 180 days of an intended date of departure.
