Summary

The capital of Germany is Berlin. The Berlin metro system is also known as U-Bahn (Ubahn). U-bahn is the name for Berlin underground. With an average of 2 million daily ridership (500 million per year), 10 city lines, about 150 kilometres of tracks and 173 stations it is considered as a medium sized metro (subway) system. Berlin began its operation back in the 1902 so it is quite an old system. Some stations are really old. Trains run every two to four minutes when there is most traffic (example during peak hours – morning rush hours / after work rush hours), every five to seven minutes during non-peak hours and about every ten minutes in the evening, when there is lesser traffic. The whole subway is divided into 3 areas. Area A is covering Berlin centre, Area B covers city borders and Area C connects surroundings to the city of Berlin.

Berlin metro timetable
Just select the station name where you will be boarding the metro and the station name of your exit and the system will show you the timetable. Usually you don’t have to check timetable because trains run frequently – the Metro runs trough the whole day. During the week from 05:00 in the morning to 01:00 in the morning and non-stop at the weekend every ten to twenty minutes, depending on the time of day. Night buses replace most services between 01:00 and 05:00. Trains are frequent – two to five minutes between each train during rush hours (in the morning and after work rush hours) and up to ten minutes on non peak periods.
