Brandenburg enjoys an ideal location at the heart of Europe, while a modern road, rail, waterway and air transport infrastructure ensures perfect connections to the European transport networks.
The German Capital Region is served by nearly 900 kilometres of autobahn (A2, A9, A10, A11, A12, A13, A15, A19, A20, A24, A100, A111, A113, A114, A115, A117) that are part of the trans-European network of north–south and east–west axes. Several successfully developed freight villages complement this excellent road infrastructure.
The railway network extends over more than 3.300 kilometres and has been extensively modernised. All the main lines are electrified, including those leading to the North Sea and Baltic Sea ports (Hamburg, Bremen, Rostock, Stralsund, Mukran). As many as 275 freight transport stations are available in Brandenburg. (Please visit www.gleisanschluss-brandenburg.de for detailed information on the region’s transhipment points.) Intermodal nodes are available in Wustermark (“Berlin West” freight village and trade station), Grossbeeren (“Berlin Süd” freight village and trade station), Freienbrink (“Berlin Ost” freight village), Frankfurt/Oder (Euro Transport and Trade Centre), City GVZ Westhafen (Berlin), Schwarzheide (BASF terminal) and Elsterwerda (Elsterwerda West).
Brandenburg’s freight waterway network extends about 1,300 kilometres and interconnects the region with the North Sea and Baltic Sea ports of Hamburg, Bremen/Bremerhaven and Szczecin. Moreover, eleven inland ports facilitate access to this excellent waterway network.
Last but not least, Schönefeld airport is currently being developed into a major European air hub, Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), and will further boost the region’s economy.
