The **distance** between two places is usually measured as the crow flies. The direct length of the connection is calculated in kilometers or miles. The **distance** for cars or trains is measured by road or rail length.

To calculate the straight line, you need two points that are located at a distance from each other. The straight line is the distance between the two points by air.

## Examples of the distance (as the crow flies)

New York to Berlin | 6,377 km |

Hamburg to Chicago | 5,966 km |

Berlin to Munich | 467 km |

Vienna to Rome | 840 km |

Salzburg to Vienna | 251 km |

New York to Hong Kong | 8,568 km |

Los Angeles to New York | 8,562 km |

Berlin to Hamburg | 231 km |

Cologne to Berlin | 538 km |

Hamburg to London | 719 km |

The distance between two cities is usually given in kilometers, miles or nautical miles. This distance can be easily calculated using the **airline calculator**.

## Calculate distance

The distance between two cities can be calculated in different ways, depending on the type of distance you want to determine and the information available.

**As the crow flies**: This is the direct distance between two points and can be calculated using geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude). There are online tools and geolocation services that can perform this calculation automatically, or you can use the Haversine formula or other trigonometric methods to calculate the distance on the earth's surface.**Road distance**: This is the actual distance a vehicle must travel on roads or highways to get from one place to another. This distance can vary greatly from the airline distance as it is influenced by road layout, traffic rules and geographical conditions. Most GPS devices and online map services such as Google Maps can calculate this distance, taking into account various route options.**Public transportation**: The distance traveled by public transportation such as trains, buses or the subway can also be calculated. Online transportation services and public transport apps often offer route planners that can calculate the total travel time and distance based on timetables and connections.

The choice of method depends on the context and purpose of the distance calculation. For a quick estimate, the airline distance may be sufficient, while for trip planning purposes the road or public transport distance may be more relevant.
