The capital connects Western and Eastern Europe. It is the intersection of European transport routes for the largest economic region in the Western world.
Trans-European transport routes such as road, rail, aviation and inland shipping cross one another in the capital. The metropolitan region is enhanced by a network of regional and inner-city transport routes. With the new Berlin Brandenburg BER airport and modern design of the motorways, railways and shipping routes, the transport infrastructure in the capital has a secure future.
„The S-Bahn is the pulse of local public transport in the capital region. It connects Berlin and Brandenburg and brings hundreds of thousands of commuters to work and back home every day. The colleagues in the driver's cabs, control center and maintenance workshops ensure that the traffic runs on time and reliably. In 2019, we started to rejuvenate our fleet - with new and completely overhauled trains. That means more space and comfort for our passengers. Your satisfaction is our most important goal.“
Suppliers in the capital offer tailored services to companies to help make their work easier and more successful. In the energy sector as well as the supply and disposal industries, city suppliers support the requirements of each industry with efficient, sustainable services.
Berlin has set itself the goal of becoming a gigabit capital and is pushing ahead with the nationwide expansion of gigabit broadband. In the short term, a cost-effective fibre optic connection is to be made available for commercial users based on demand; in the long term, nationwide fibre optic supply based on FTTB/H is to be ensured by 2030. Currently, a stable, high-performance supply with a technology mix of FTTB/H, FTTC and HFC with bandwidths >50 Mbit/s makes Berlin based companies competitive. The telecommunications infrastructure is being fully developed with the 5G mobile communications standard by 2025.
As a health location, Berlin can look back on more than 300 years of tradition. A dense care network, highly specialised experts and world-renowned clinics such as the German Heart Center or Europe’s largest university clinic, the Charité, not only guarantee medical care for the Berlin population. More and more guests from abroad are also coming to the German capital for treatment.
The organisation of a large city requires ongoing debate when it comes to security matters. This task is overseen by security authorities, city planners and transport companies in Berlin. Prevention experts in the police force, transport company specialists and city planners make life in Berlin safer.
