Where Berlin - - ESSENTIALS -

Wit­ten­berg­platz sta­tion is easily one of the city’s most pic­turesque. The strik­ing Art Nou­veau en­trance hall was originally built in 1913, and de­spite sus­tain­ing sig­nif­i­cant dam­ages in WWII, has been care­fully re­stored to fit the build­ing’s land­mark sta­tus. Clas­sic ads and dec­o­ra­tive tiles adorn many of the walls, and look out for a sign on plat­form 1 in the dis­tinc­tive red-cir­cled style of the Lon­don Un­der­ground – a 1952 gift from Lon­don for the BVG’s 50th birth­day.
