Catching a train from London to Berlin is a good way to travel between these two great capital cities. Anyone traveling by train from London to Berlin will need to make a couple of changes along the way. The first leg will usually be a Eurostar train to Brussels. From there, you can transfer to Berlin via Cologne or Frankfurt. Some journeys require 3 transfers, usually in Brussels, Cologne, and Hannover. After the Eurostar, all services are provided by Deutsche Bahn.

Buses travel from northern and central areas, while overground trains stop at St Pancras from provincial towns as well. The Tube runs from about 5:30 a.m. and stops at 12:30 a.m.
Berlin is probably Europe's nightlife center. Packed with lively nightclubs, music venues, and bars, the city attracts young people from across the world. For everyone else, it also offers a rich history, cutting edge art galleries and vibrant street life. All trains to Berlin from London arrive at the Hauptbahnhof. From there, you can simply catch the Metro (U-Bahn) to anywhere in the city, or use the buses and trams to get to your hotel. The Metro runs from 4:00 a.m. until 1:00 a.m., so it should be running when your train from London arrives.
