Taking the train from Berlin to Warsaw is blissfully simple as direct trains link the German and Polish capitals.
Departing from Berlin:
These trains usually depart from the upper level (tief) in Berlin Hbf.
They also call at Berlin Ostbahnhof, so if your journey is commencing in the heart of east Berlin, it will be an easier journey if you take a S-Bahn train to that station and join these trains there.
The usual first train of the day does not depart on Sundays.
Arriving in Warszawa:
These trains call at three stations in Warszawa/Warsaw, so check your final location in your city to see which of these three stations will suit you best - leaving the train at Warszawa Centralna may not be your best option.
They will call first at Warszawa Zachodnia, so take care not to leave the train there if you are heading to the city centre.
They will terminate at Warszawa Wschodnia which is on the eastern side of the the city centre.

This is an exceptionally dull journey by train through forests and across hour after hour of largely flat farmland, so having something to watch or read is highly recommended.
