List of railway stations in the Berlin area

Berlin-Lichtenberg is a railway station in the Lichtenberg district of Berlin. Lichtenberg is also a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U5 and an S-Bahn station.

Overview[edit]

Until 2006, international trains to Kaliningrad, Warsaw, Kiev, Minsk, Moskow and Siberia (among others Omsk, Novosibirsk and Kazakhstan) used to stop at Berlin-Lichtenberg. However, after the completion of Berlin Hauptbahnhof, these trains now stop there. Night trains from all parts of Germany still terminate at this station, however, as do some trains from Warsaw and Kraków. Lichtenberg was featured in the opening scene of the movie "The Bourne Ultimatum" where it was made to look like a Moscow train station.

The subway station was built in 1930 by Grenander and until 1965 the term "Zentralfriedhof" (engl.central cemetery) was added to the name. From 1935 the station was called "Bahnhof Lichtenberg". In East Germany the station was an important train station also. The passenger tunnel has only a height of 2,25m. [1]
