From airport Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF): take the train to Berlin-Ostbahnhof and a train to Wolfsburg (alltogether about 2 hours)

From airport Berlin-Tegel (TXL): From the airport, there is a bus to the railway station Berlin-Hauptbahnhof from which an ICE train reaches Wolfsburg in about one hour (alltogether 1:30 to 2:00 hours)
