Berlin Brandenburger Tor (in German Bahnhof Berlin Brandenburger Tor) – formerly Berlin Unter den Linden – is an underground railway station in the central Mitte district of Berlin, Germany, located on the Unter den Linden boulevard near Hotel Adlon, Pariser Platz and Brandenburg Gate. It is served by the Berlin S-Bahn and U-Bahn, and local bus lines.
The station opened on July 27, 1936 in the course of the building of the Nord-Süd Bahn tunnel. Train service discontinued on April 21, 1945 and could not be resumed until December 2, 1946 as the tunnel was flooded. The station was again closed with the construction of the Berlin Wall on August 13, 1961 and for decades became one of Berlin's ghost stations, as both termini of the Nord-Süd railway line were located in West Berlin, the station itself however in the East. Unter den Linden reopened on September 1, 1990.
On completion of the new U55 line of the Berlin U-Bahn from Berlin Hauptbahnhof, the station started serving as its temporary southern terminus and as an interchange with the Nord Süd S-Bahn lines. Both the U-Bahn and the S-Bahn station have been renamed Brandenburger Tor in 2009 to distinguish them from a further planned U-Bahn station at the junction of Unter den Linden with the Friedrichstraße.
