As you may have heard, Berlin is an eternal construction site. Even better when something is finally declared open as it was with the new metro station Brandenburger Tor. Up to this point there are only 3 stations of the new metro line U55 opened, but at least no politician has to walk the 200m till the main station when the chauffeur is ill.
The station just for myself
As for the design of the new stations I was very positively surprised and am curious of the other stations that should be finished within the next ten years. To take photos, now is a great time. Almost no people are taking the metro and even if, it is only running every 12 minutes, so you have the station often all by yourself.
To get a bit of dynamic in the photo, I had to activate the escalator a couple of times. It seems that the station is built so energy efficient, that the escalator is only running for a couple of seconds.
