The station is situated below Claudius-Keller-Straße in the borough of Ramersdorf. The walls are covered by grey-beige-colored panels, the floor is paved with artificial gravels that resemble gravels from the river Isar. The pillars are covered by grey-beige-colored tiles. The ceiling has rows of neon tubes and is faced with aluminium lamellae. At the western end you can get to the surface using a ramp. At the eastern end you use stairs to get to a mezzanine. From there you can reach the junction Claudius-Keller-Straße/Rosenheimer Straße.

The station was named after the Karl-Preis-Platz which was named after Karl Sebastian Preis (SPD), town councilor in Munich and founder of the local building society GEWOFAG.
