Platform of the station

Adenauerplatz is a Berlin U-Bahn Station on the U7 line in the district of Charlottenburg, borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. It was opened on 28 April 1978 after the north-west extension to Spandau, and is located on the Kurfürstendamm/Lewishamstrasse intersection.

According to the station directory of the BVG (Berlin Transport Company), the station has an escalator but no elevator, and is therefore not completely accessible.


The development of the area around the present Adenauerplatz was planned in 1913. The Kurfuerstendamm line (later U3, today U1) was to cross further westwards from the Uhlandstrasse station, the present-day terminus, and terminate at Theodor-Heuss-Platz station. These plans were not initially put into action, meaning that the station was not built until the U7 line was extended in the 1970s. To accommodate the western extension of the U3, which was still in the planning stage, a second platform was built underneath the U7.

In 2004, the underground station underwent complete renovation. The supports and the ceiling were fitted with a lighter trim along with granite tiles for the floor. The architect Rainer G. Ruemmler originally designed the station, however during the renovation many of the station's original features were removed.
