The images and aerial photographs below illustrate facts related to Seestraße (Berlin U-Bahn). Seestraße is a station in the Wedding district of Berlin which serves the and is operated by the BVG. It lies at the busy intersection of Müllerstraße and Seestraße, which are two of Wedding's principal shopping streets and thoroughfares.

Overview

Seestraße station first opened on 8 March 1923 (designed by Grenander/Fehse/Jennen) and was at that time the terminus of the newly-built line from Stettiner Bahnhof (now Naturkundemuseum). The station consists of two platforms, the more westerly of which is an island platform with two tracks. In normal service, only the two outer tracks are used. The middle track is principally used for access to the large depot located just north of the station, but is also used for service trains which are beginning or terminating in the station. 1955 the station was renovated by B. Grimmek.

This unusual arrangement exists because the station was the terminus of the line when it opened. A wall was originally provided between the two platforms but was later removed.

The U-Bahn station was at one time complemented by multiple tram as well as bus lines. The removal of tram lines in West Berlin meant that the last tram ran on 2 October 1967. However, the line running along the Seestraße was rebuilt and opened again on 25 October 1997, extended to Virchow-Klinikum. Today the station is served by two tram lines (one of which runs continuously), two bus lines during the day and three lines at night.
