The entrance of U-Bahn station Kaiserdamm, 1908

Kaiserdamm is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U2. It is linked to the Berlin S-Bahn station of Messe Nord/ICC (former Witzleben).

Opened in 1908, this station was built by A. Grenander. In 1936, it was renamed to Kaiserdamm/Messedamm; in 1967 it got the name Adenauerdamm (Messedamm). However, protests from the people living nearby led to another change to the former name (Adenauer — the chancellor of West Germany was not well liked in Berlin in these days).[1]
