Overview[edit]

The station was opened on 29 May 1999 and is situated in the Messestadt Riem of which it covers the eastern part. It is situated below the Willy-Brandt-Allee. The walls consist of concrete that is covered by waved aluminium. It shall remind of the airplanes that used to land at the Munich-Riem Airport that once was situated at this place. The station is illuminated by 2 rows of neon tubes mirrored by a bended reflecting tube. The floor is covered by granite slabs with red lines perpendicular to the tracks. Escalators and stairs lead to a mezzanine at the eastern end. Here there are pictures exhibited from the time of construction. At the exit there is a sundial. The time can be read from the wall.
