How to get to Cottbus?

From BER Berlin Brandenburg Airport the best way to get to Cottbus Hauptbahnhof (Main Station) will be via train. There will be regular trains between the two stations. You can book your train ticket either online via the Deutsche Bahn-Portal: http://www.bahn.com/en or buy the ticket at the ticket vending machine- at the station.

When you arrive at Cottbus Main Station the best way to get to the following hotels is:
