Stadt­mitte

Where Berlin - - ESSENTIALS -

The name of the Stadt­mitte U-Bahn sta­tion is rather fit­ting: It lit­er­ally means “city cen­ter,” which aptly de­scribes the lo­ca­tion of this busy trans­fer sta­tion in Mitte at the junc­tion of Friedrich­straße and Leipziger Straße. The sta­tion’s long pedes­trian tun­nel con­nect­ing the U6 and U2 lines was bricked up from 1961–1990, as the for­mer be­longed to West Ber­lin and the lat­ter to the East.
