Altstadt Spandau U-Bahn station

Red and white: architect Rainer G. Rümmler was responsible for the distinctive design and look of most of the U-Bahn stations in Berlin built or refurbished between 1970 and 1996, and among these is Altstadt Spandau lying on the U7 subway line through Berlin, fourteen meters below street level.

Rümmler often took inspiration for his designs from the station names themselves, and this one is no exception, the contrasting red and white tiled interior reflects the colours of the Spandau coat of arms.

The station first opened in 1984 and was awarded heritage listing in 2017 together with six other U7 stations.
