The Berliner S-Bahn is a rapid transit system in and around Berlin which came into existence in 1924. It consists of 15 lines and crosses the Berlin city and state border into the surrounding state of Brandenburg, e.g. to Potsdam. Even if the poster above says it is the most loved transportation system in Berlin (not true! it’s the tram!) the poor S-Bahn has a reputation of never being on time, being frequently cancelled, specially in winter with – 15 degrees, and Schienenersatzverkehr (rail replacement bus service) is one of the worst things to hear. Still, I like the S-Bahn. It takes you everywhere. And there is a lot to see. As long as you are patient it’s fun.

Die Berliner S-Bahn (Schnellstadtbahn) wurde 1924 eingeweiht, sie besteht aus 15 Linien, die in und um Berlin fahren, und reicht sogar über die Grenzen des Stadtstaates Berlin bis hin nach Brandenburg. Brandenburg! Oha! Selbst wenn das Poster oben damit wirbt, dass die S-Bahn das beliebteste Verkehrsmittel der Berliner ist (stimmt nicht, das ist m.E. die Tram!) hat die arme, alte S-Bahn mit einem fürchterlichen Ruf zu kämpfen. Oft fällt sie aus (besonders gerne im Winter bei – 15 Grad), ist wenn sie dann mal ankommt verspätet und “Schienenersatzverkehr” lässt jeden Berliner erschauern. Ich mag die S-Bahn trotzdem, sie bringt mich jottweedee (jans weit draußen) und es gibt immer was zu gucken. Man muss nur geduldig sein.
