U-Bahn Station MarienplatzEdit profile
Among the differently designed stations in Munich, the central changing station Marienplatz has a special role. The station is the most heavily used in the entire subway network. Architect Alexander Freiherr von Branca designed it in bright orange, dark blue and dark green. Von Branca was also responsible for the changes in construction during the years 2003-2006, when new parts of the station were carefully integrated into the already existing concept. Between 2003 and 2006, two approximately 100m long tunnels were carved in parallel to the platforms, connected in the form of a gallery to the present platform via 11 archways. After the construction of the second principal S-Bahn (city and suburban railway), the route will be completed. These tunnels, at their Northern ends, will then also provide access to the new S-Bahn station Marienhof.
