Residenzstrasse underground station
The Residenzstraße underground station is on the U8 line of the Berlin underground . It was opened on April 27, 1987, together with the stations Paracelsus-Bad and Franz-Neumann-Platz (Am Schäfersee) under the name Residenzstraße route . The train station is located in the Reinickendorf district of the eponymous district and is 746 meters from the Franz-Neumann-Platz underground station and 920 meters from the Paracelsus-Bad underground station. In the station directory of the BVG it is called RE .
The station has a central platform with an exit each at the two ends of the platform, which lead via escalators into vestibules. The architect Rainer G. Rümmler designed the space, as in many other Berlin subway stations. He deals with Berlin as a residence: the walls are kept in the color of yellowed paper, on which cityscapes of Berlin from the time of the fortification can be seen. The columns in the middle of the platform have the same pattern throughout, reminiscent of designs from earlier times. The ceiling - large, delimited squares with hemispherical lamps - is modeled on those of residence halls.
At the underground station you can change from the U8 line to the bus lines 122, 125 and 327 of the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe.
