WiFi at the SBB

Registered readers of the Staatsbibliothek can use the WiFi service in each of the library buildings. The wireless network of the Staatsbibliothek is not a hotspot, but a secured WLAN, which provides access to various licensed databases.
To connect to the SBB WLAN you must:

  • Change your password:
    To use the WiFi Service you must change the default password for your library account. The password must be a minimum of six characters in length and must contain at least one letter, one number and one special character. Please wait approximately 30 minutes for your password to be updated. (It is possible to change your password at any of the terminals in the reading rooms).
  • Connect to WLAN-SPK-Erstzugang
    To connect to the SBB-WLAN, view the available wireless networks on your device and select ‘WLAN-SPK-Erstzugang’. Once you have connected to this network, a WLAN-Portal with further information will open in your browser. If the WLAN-Portal does not open automatically, please visit wlan.sbb.berlin to be redirected to the Portal. To complete setting up your WiFi connection, you must know which operating system your device is using. In the WLAN-Portal you can select the appropriate instructions for your operating system.
  • Having Problems?
    If you cannot connect to the SBB WLAN, perhaps our FAQs can be of assistance? If not, please do not hesitate to contact us at our information desks for additional help.
    For WiFi-problems that are more complicated, we also offer WiFi-Consultations at Haus Unter den Linden and Haus Potsdamer Straße.


It is possible to print files using the SBB WLAN. The service is provided by our in house copy service BiblioCopy. Further information can be found directly at BiblioCopy.

You may take your laptop, netbook or other portable device into the reading rooms – power sockets are available at the workstations. Please note that you may only bring clear plastic bags with you into the reading rooms – laptop bags are prohibited. We will gladly provide you with a clear bag to transport your laptop and other working materials.
