U-Bahn station Südstern

Südstern is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U 7.

History[edit]

Opened as "Hasenheide" in 1924 (built by Alfred Grenander), the name changed to "Kaiser-Friedrich-Platz" in 1933 and to "Gardepionierplatz" in 1939.

Two allied bombs hit the station on 24 May 1944 and the ceiling collapsed on Battle of Berlin.

In 1947 the station got the name Südstern. In 1958 the platform was elongated. The next station is Hermannplatz (change here for U8).[1]

From 2010 the station will have additional support features for the blind and partially sighted as well as an elevator.[2]
