Eberswalder Straße is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U2. The station is a raised iron structure on stone columns, designed by architect Alfred Grenander. It opened 1913, named Danziger Strasse. It was closed during the last months of World War II when Berlin was heavily bombed. The post-war division of Berlin put it in the Russian sector. In 1950 it was renamed Dimitroffstrasse, in honour of Bulgarian communist leader Georgi Dimitrov. The name was changed to Eberswalder Straße in 1991, following the reunification of Germany.

The station is known locally for Konnopke's currywurst stand underneath the track at the south end of the station. Konnopke's dates back to 1930 and is a Berlin institution.[1]
