KREUZBERGED BERLIN

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

UP AND AWAY WITH U1: FROM SCHLESISCHES TOR TO GÖRLITZER BAHNHOF

The next section of Kreuzberg line of U1: from Schlesisches Tor to the 3rd station, Görlitzer Bahnhof. Until 1926 “U-Bahnhof Görlitzer Bahnhof” – named after one of the big Berlin terminus railway station Görlitzer Bahnhof in Wiener Strasse (more about the station here) – was called “Oranienstrasse”.

Well into 1982 both names were used and the name-plaques at the stations read: “Görlitzer Bahnhof (Oranienstrasse)”.

Mind the pigeons while walking…

    Great addition to yesterday’s series. What camera are you using? Film or digital?

      Thank you. Those are all digital photos – Panasonic DMC-FZ45. I also have a Rolleiflex 4KA but am too new to TLR and bit rusty on analog to present the photos yet. But they will come as well.
