Platform of the station

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

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

History[edit]

The development of the area around the present Adenauerplatz was planned in 1913. The Kurfuerstendamm line (later U3, today U1) should cross further westwards from the Endbahnhof-Uhlandstrasse and terminate at the Bahnhof Theodor-Heuss-Platz. These plans were not originally put into action, the station was built only due to the extension of the U7 line in the 1970s. To accommodate the western extension of the U3, whilst still at its planning stage, a second platform was built underneath the U7.

In 2004 the underground station underwent a 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 had redesigned the station, however during the renovation many of the station's original features were implemented into its design.
