U9 Osloer Straße - Rathaus Steglitz
 UrbanRail.Net > Europe > Berlin

Line U9

U8Total length: 12.5 km (underground) - 18 stations

Large-profile line with ~100 m long platforms (6-car trains of F and H stock).

Line U9 operates every 5 minutes during off-peak daytime service, and every 4 minutes during peak hours.

Line U9 was opened shortly before the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961. It runs entirely on former West Berlin territory and is an important north-south axis bypassing the historic city centre. It is completely underground, and thanks to its straight alignment one of Berlin's fastest lines.
