Uhlandstraße (Berlin U-Bahn)
The station opened on October 12, 1913 (built by A.Grenander) as the first section of a projected metro line connecting Wittenbergplatz with Berlin-Halensee railway station which was never built. It is located in southeastern Charlottenburg on the Kurfürstendamm boulevard among a mix of chain and high end shopping facilities. The area is somewhat reminiscent of the period of promoterism (Gründerzeit) and the Wirtschaftswunder days of the 1950s. Quiet, green roads with mostly expensive flats make the area one of the most desirable but unaffordable in Berlin, comparable for instance to the area between Westminster and Kensington in London.
In 1945 the station was closed briefly, and again in 1957 for four years because of the construction of the new Kurfürstendamm underground station. From 1970, trains only went to this station (1,2 km length) but from 1993 trains are going to Warschauer Strasse again. 
In 2005 a second entrance was opened at the eastern end of the station, at the junction of Kurfürstendamm and Fasanenstraße.
