Bülowstraße

Metro station Bülowstraße ca. 1910Metro station Bülowstraße 2020

Named after the Prussian General Friedrich Wilhelm Freiherr von Bülow in remembrance of the Wars of Liberation fought against Napoleon in 1813 this station first opened in 1902 on what was then called the Stramstrecke, Berlin’s first Metro line, now called the U2.

Originally there was huge resistance to the erection of such a modern utility, an elevated urban rail system, as many were afraid that it would ruin the local ambience, although now, over a century later, it’s become an integral part of the neighbourhood’s city scenery. 

Although the station was heavily damaged during WWII, it was later rebuilt, which accounts for its slightly altered appearance.
