I´m planning a new series for my blog: train stations of Berlin!
There are many, as you will see, beautifully restored train stations that look very different from the modern ones, giving us a sense of what it felt like to enter the train over a hundred years ago.
Today, I´m showing you photographs I´ve taken last week from the underground station “Heidelberger Platz” that´s situated in Wilmersdorf.
The train station was designed by Wilhelm Leitgebel and has been opened in 1913, one year before the First World War began.
During my studies I used to change here daily from the above ground train station of Heidelberger Platz to this underground station to catch the train bringing me to my destination Dahlem Dorf where the Free University of Berlin is situated.
And although I did notice the train station´s splendor, it was only in passing. I never really took the time to appreciate and explore it like I did now.
Now it´s time to deal with these lapses of the past!
And I hope you will join me on my discovery tour!
