BERLINER UNTERWELTEN EV

It is our pleasure to inform you here about our various activities. What we do is to explore and to explain to the public Berlin's Urban History and Architecture from an unconventional perspective. Besides, we have worked over the past few years on the establishment of a permanent exhibition – a Berlin Underworlds Museum. The results are – in our view at least – quite presentable. Thus, we are hoping to see you soon within our facilities. Climb down with us into the fascinating subterranean world of Berlin!

Welcome to the website of Berliner Unterwelten e.V.
(Berlin Underworlds' Association – Registered Society)

On the occasion of the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany, we focus here our interest on the varied history of Berlin's Olympic Stadium, the place of the final match. We draw the attention to many aspects that are not mentioned in many of the publications that have been published in the days shortly before this big football tournament. Perhaps this concealment is due to a certain lack of knowledge, maybe the blank spots have been left behind intentionally. Please follow us on an exciting excursion into the hidden catacombs beneath the Olympic Stadium!

We also want to inform you here about our various activities. It is our aim to impart Urban History of a big city from an unconventional perspective. In addition, we would like to present our permanent exhibition – the Berlin Underworlds' Museum.

“They tore up the cobblestones at the Rosenthaler Platz. So, between others, he walked on wooden boards. Look, they are building the underground railway.”

What the writer Alfred Doeblin thus described in his famous novel “Berlin Alexanderplatz” was just one of many construction sites in the city. The engineers often dug very deep into the soil of Berlin and the subway system is only a part of its subterranean architecture. Many other objects are to b found in Berlin's sandy underground. Cemeteries, secret air raid shelters, sewers and even an aircraft factory were built under the surface of the city. A lot of these structures still exist nowadays.

In the autumn of 1997, a few enthusiasts got together in order to explore this subterranean world. The organization they founded, the “Berlin Underworlds' Association”, locates and documents such hidden installations, making some of them accessible to the public. Furthermore, it uses these sites for cultural purposes (such as exhibitions, theatre performances and concerts). The organization has already discovered numerous forgotten subterranean structures – but many other secrets are still to be discovered down there. Please come and climb with us down into the hidden secrets of Berlin's Underground. We are looking forward to see you!

Breitscheidplatz

The current plans for Breitscheidplatz are intended to upgrade a site of both city-wide and national significance, whose development as part of central western Berlin must be seen in relation to the modernisation of the eastern city centre.

* The square's specific Charlottenburgian characteristics are to be strengthened and its special urban profile highlighted.
* That is why both the spaces and the edges of Breitscheidplatz must be strengthened.
* The energy of the Kurfürstendamm will be channelled along a new, attractively-designed Breitscheidplatz to as far as Budapester Strasse.
* It is to be interwoven more clearly with neighbouring urban districts to the north and southeast.

While the new station looks like it's actually cohesivly planned station with wider platforms (nice), what's up with removing the track(s) connectin the left and the top (in the last map)?

Are you talking about the gap between the tracks?
Well actually there is a bridge with disused platforms to be demolished this year.
This line used to be a part of the "Nordkurve" which is completely out of service since ages

Not sure what you mean there...
The one I'm talking about is in the first aerial but not the rendering nor the map. In the aerial it comes in from the left edge and turns to also exit by the left edge of the pic.
