From skiing in the Alps to bicycle tours in France or golf holidays in Mallorca: Sometimes a suitcase or rucksack just isn’t enough for a flight. Alongside skis, bikes and golf bags there’s also child’s car seats, surfboards, musical instruments and prams that all count as oversized luggage, or as large and special luggage. Generally, this category includes all items of luggage which can’t be checked in normally due to their dimensions, weight or content. There are separate luggage conveyor belts for this kind of luggage at airports. At Tegel and Schönefeld, there are desks solely for the check-in of special luggage.
