Platform at Samariterstraße U-Bahn station

Samariterstraße is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U5.

As of 2011, construction of an elevator has commenced in order to make the station grade-free accessible.

Built in 1930 by A. Grenander, it was tiled green and closed during a few months in 1945. During the GDR the station was covered with pictures of SED propaganda that was removed in 1990. After 1993 there were anti-violence ads hanging on the walls, put up after a 23-old was killed in this station by right wingers.[1]

Today, however, advertisements are on the walls of the station.
