Europe Transit > Germany > Berlin


The Berlin U-Bahn is one of the top 10 metros in the world. The city is well covered with expansion projects under way. With the Berlin Wall gone, several "Ghost" stations have been reopened and the U1 has been re-extended to its original terminal in East Berlin, and extensions are under construction/consideration.
