Rosenthaler Platz is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U8, at Brunnenstraße.

It was opened in 18 June 1990 and was designed by A. Grenander, making prominent use of the colour orange. From 13 August 1961 to 22 December 1989 the station was one of the city's many "ghost stations".[1][2]

The station served as a temporary border crossing from 22 December 1989 to 1 July 1990, and the station had undergone renovation work, with the removal of bullet-riddled holes and interior refurbishment.[3]
