Berlin TXL airport - easy to transfer planes?

I have a flight from the U.S. connecting through Berlin TXL airport to Budapest, with the layover time of 1 hr 30 min. Is this easy to do? Do I have to go through passport control again? Not checking luggage and traveling solo.

TXL is not really set up for airside transfers. When you arrive, you go through immigration right in the exit gate area, and that drops you into the main concourse. You then go to your departure gate. Since Hungary is one of the Schengen countries, you will not have to go through an (immigration) exit check. However, your passport will probably be checked as ID before you get into the departure gate area. Security control is also integrated into the departure gate.

TXL is quite easy and 1h30 will be plenty of time. If both your flights are AB and you are lucky, then you may well land and depart from Terminal C, which would keep you in the same terminal.

The only other TATL coming to TXL is UA from EWR, which usually lands at A or D, however the walk to Terminal C from there is not really very far.

You can cross the entire airport in under 15 minutes even with the provisional terminals included. It's not designed as a transfer airport but it's also not designed as a big airport which evens things out. 1h30 is plenty assuming no major delays.
