Munich-Berg am Laim station is a stop on the Munich S-Bahn in the district of Berg am Laim in the Bavarian state capital of Munich. The station is served daily from about 300 services of the Munich S-Bahn each day and is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 4 station.[1] It has two platforms tracks and lies on the Munich–Rosenheim railway and the Munich–Mühldorf railway.

History[edit]

No station was opened at Berg am Laim when the Munich–Rosenheim railway opened on 15 October 1871. Berg am Laim was only opened as a halt (German: Haltepunkt) on 1 in May 1897, but only on the line to Rosenheim, which then ran parallel but south of the line to Mühldorf at this point. The station was, however, closed on 1 May 1915 because the line to Rosenheim was moved to the north so that it was next to the line to Mühldorf, but no new station was opened. A year later, on 1 May 1916, another Berg am Laim halt opened, this time only on the line to Mühldorf. On 1 October 1938, the station's name was changed from Berg am Laim to München-Berg am Laim.[3] Until the introduction of the S-Bahn on Munich 28 May 1972, the station served only by trains on the Mühldorf line, but since the introduction of the S-Bahn it has been served by both lines. The platforms were made accessible for the disabled in 2008 with the provision of a separate underpass for the S-Bahn; previously travellers had to use the adjacent road tunnel to reach the platform.

Infrastructure[edit]

The station has two platform tracks on an island platform, which has been equipped for disabled people since 2008. The platform is accessible via a pedestrian underpass and it has a platform canopy and digital platform displays. Berg am Laimer Bahnhof bus stop is served by bus routes 146 and 185 of the Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (Munich Transport Company, MVG).[4] The station is located in the service area of the Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund (Munich Transport and Tariff Association, MVV).

Platform data[edit]

Platform lengths and heights are as follows:[5]

  • Track 1: length 211 m, height 96 cm
  • Track 2: length 211 m, height 96 cm

Rail services[edit]

The station is served at 20 minute intervals by S-Bahn lines 2, 4 and 6, with line S 6 only operating in the peak hour. In addition, S-Bahn line S 2 services run at 10-minute intervals during the peak hour.
