During the Long Night
Shuttle buses are running on eight routes to take you straight to the doors of most of the museums. There are also old-timer buses waiting to take you through the neighbourhoods and helpers are on hand to help you find your way to your favourite museum. The shuttle buses are suitable for wheelchairs. Of course you can also use public transport – it’s included in the price of the Long Night Ticket! You can use it to travel on the underground (U-Bahn), suburban railway (S-Bahn), trams and buses in fare zone ABC from 3 pm until 5 am. Children over 6 years of age who can visit the museums without a ticket in the Long Night will still need a ticket to use public transport.
Here you can find the route plan.
