Berliner Tor is a railway station in Hamburg, Germany, served by the underground railway and the trains of the Hamburg S-Bahn (suburban railway). The station is located in the quarter St. Georg in the Hamburg-Mitte borough.
Berliner Tor S-Bahn station opened in 1906.
The original Berliner Tor U-Bahn station was designed by the architect, Erich Elingius, and built between 1908 and 1910, opening on 1 March 1912. It had a brick wall on the North, and some glass walls on the South.
During the Battle of Berlin in 1943, the damage to the station was so great that the U-Bahn was no longer able to serve the line. On 19 January 1948, the station re-opened as a terminus for trains to Barmbek via Schlump, and from 1 July 1949, trains continued again to Mundsburg.
From 1962 to 1964, a new station complex was built to the North of the old one, and it opened on 10 May 1964, after which the old building was demolished. Between 1964 and 1966, the station was expanded from two platforms to four. From 2 January 1967, the U3 served the station, and between September 1968 and June 1973, the U21.
Berliner Tor is a station for the rapid transit trains of the lines S1, S11, S2 and S21 of the Hamburg S-Bahn and the lines U2 and U3 of the Hamburg U-Bahn. In front of the railway station exits, there are various bus stops.
The Hamburg U-Bahn is planning to open the line U4 in 2012:
