Munich Harras station
|Location||Sendling, Munich, Bavaria
|DS100 code||MHAR |
München Harras is a railway and Munich U-Bahn interchange station. It is located in the Harras area of the borough of Sendling. It serves as an important transportation hub for the borough, providing interchange between U-Bahn, S-Bahn, local bus services as well as limited regional railway services on the Bayerische Oberlandbahn main line. The S-Bahn station is located down the road from the U-Bahn station, necessitating a short walk along Albert-Roßhaupter-Straße. The U-Bahn station, but not the S-Bahn station, has access for the disabled.
The station is named after a large road intersection, Am Harras, where Albert-Roßhaupter-Straße (east-west) and Plinganserstraße (north-south) meet. Before the rise of local buses, Am Harras used to be an important tramway interchange station, servicing lines 6 and 8. Evidence of this can still be found, as many of the tramway lanes have been converted to bus lanes. Plinganserstraße, running south from Harras, boasts a large green patch dividing the north-south lanes, where the former tramway used to run.
In its current incarnation, Am Harras is difficult to navigate—with the bus station in the middle of the square and traffic flowing around it—and there are plans to convert it to a 'T' intersection, with more space on the sides for cafés and shops.
