Frankfurter Tor (Berlin U-Bahn)
Frankfurter Tor is a station on U-Bahn line U5 in Berlin, Germany. It is situated under Frankfurter Tor, a large square. Built by A. Grenander in 1930 it was first named Petersburger Straße. The stations were renamed as follows:
- 1946 - 1958: Bersarinstraße (Nikolai Berzarin was the first Russian commander of Berlin)
- 1958: Bersarinstraße (Frankfurter Tor)
- 1958 - 1991: Frankfurter Tor
- 1991 - 1996: Rathaus Friedrichshain
- 1996 - 2006: Petersburger Straße
- 2006 - present: Frankfurter Tor after extensive refurbishment. It was planned since 1996.
In future, there are plans for U1 to be extended to Frankfurter Tor, but because it duplicates the tram route M10, there is also a possibility of extending U1 to Ostkreuz after the refurbishment in 2015.
