There is an express bus running from Tegel, called very appropriately TXL. It runs to Alexanderplatz (trip takes 25 min), and passes a few hundred meters from Stadtmitte at Unter den Linden. The closest stop would be Unter den Linden/Friedrichstraße. One ride costs 2.40 € for an adult. (The same ticket will be valid for 2 hours on U-Bahn or S-Bahn within ...

There is no train station at Tegel airport. You best shot is to take the TXL Jet Express bus to the central station (Hauptbahnhof). There are plenty of train connections to Halle. Every two hours there is a non stop high speed train that does the trip in a little over an hour. However it's pricey: 47 Euro (unless you book a few weeks in advance). There are ...

At Tegel, enter the Bus TXL in the direction of S+U Alexanderplatz. This bus leaves every 6-7 minutes, so just go into the first bus in that direction. Leave the Bus at S+U Brandenburger Tor. At Brandenburger Tor, take the S2 rapid transit train towards S Bernau. This train leaves every 20 minutes, so again the best bet is to simply take the next available ...

According to a comment by @simbaque: I asked at the Lufthansa check in booth at TXL. They said the airline takes you to a special holding room until the international connection is ready. I joked that it's probably a dark room in the basement. He said it is in the basement indeed. The police is not involved at all.

Any answer to your question will of course be slightly opinion based, but if you are more into shopping and getting some food and not necessarily into seeing historical sights (both is probably not manageable in 7 hours anyway), you don't have too many options. I would have taken the 109 bus from Tegel to Adenauerplatz, located on the famous Kurfürstendamm ...

Eventually, Berlin will open their shiny new airport, Berlin Brandenburg Airport, which is down in the south east of the city (next to Schönefeld). When it does open, transport should be easier. For now, Tegel Airport is fairly well connected by public transport, but only by using a bus to get to the S-Bahn or U-Bahn. Tegel Airport is located just south of ...
