Platform of the station

Cottbusser Platz is a Berlin U-Bahn station located in the borough Marzahn-Hellersdorf on the U 5.

The underground station is located south of the Hellersdorfer Straße, which runs parallel to the new line of the U5, at the level of the same place. In contrast to the other stations of the route, the station is not in the incision, but slightly excessive. A pedestrian tunnel gives access to Hellersdorfer Straße north as well as to Carola-Neher-Straße and the Auerbacher Ring south of the station.

History[edit]

Station building of 1989 in 2012.

The station opened in July 1989, just a few months before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The eastern extension of (what is now) line U5 was one of the last major construction projects of the former German Democratic Republic.[1]
