Metros in Germany: The Berlin U-Bahn (UPDATED 2017)

Berlin is the capital of Germany. It has a population of approximately four million people, making it the most populous city in the country. Berlin was divided into East and West by the Berlin Wall during the Cold War. The wall was later destroyed and the country was reunified. Berlin is famous for its street art, museums, historical sites, cafés and nightlife.

Berlin has two airports: the Tegel International Airport and Schönefeld. Most of the city's public transportation is owned by Berliner Verkhersbetriebe (BVG). This company owns ferries, buses, trams and the metro. There is also a train called the S-Bahn, but it is not directly managed by BVG. The metro service is called the U-Bahn.

History

The U-Bahn was officially inaugurated on February 15, 1902, with the opening of lines U1 and U2. The original stations for line U1 were Stralauer Tor and Zoologischer Garten. The year of inauguration for the rest of the lines were: 1913 for line U3, 1910 for line U4, 1930 for line U5, 2009 for line U55, 1923 for line U6, 1924 for line U7, 1927 for line U8, and 1961 for line U9.

Tips in Berlin Metro

  • 1) Get a map of the metro's route or download it. You could also use the map from BVG's app, which is called "Fahr Info."
  • 2) Buying a ticket can be confusing since there are tickets for different zones and for different times. If you want to avoid any confusion and save time, buy a monthly pass or any ticket that lasts over a day.
  • 3) Vending machines only accept debit cards from German banks. You cannot pay for a ticket with your credit card. Therefore, you will need to use cash at vending machines. You can pay with any coin above €0.10, or you could use bills of the amounts €20, €10, or €5. However, some vending machines do not accept bills. Also, vending machines only give change in coins. Therefore, use bills of small amounts to avoid having to carry too many coins.
  • 4) If you transfer from the metro to a bus, you only need to show your ticket to the driver to board the bus. You do not need to stamp it.
  • 5) You need to stamp your ticket before boarding the metro, even though nobody will ask you to see your ticket while you board. You can stamp your ticket at stamping machines close to the vending machines at the stations. If you have a ticket but it is not stamped, or if you did not bring a ticket with you, you will be fined for €60.
  • 6) You can transfer to the Nachtbus (night bus) between 1:00 am and 5:00 am from Monday to Friday.
  • 7) People on the metro do not speak much. If you speak a lot, people may get disturbed.
  • 8) Do not put your feet on the metro's seats, since it is considered impolite. Also, do not put your bag on a seat, since it may annoy a passenger that may want to sit there.
  • 9) It is normal that people stay too close to each other in the metro. You may feel uncomfortable, but people in Berlin are used to being too close to each other in crowded trains.
  • 10) Do not feel offended if passengers do not apologize if they push you while trying to get out of the train, since this behavior is common.
