It is one of the oldest U-Bahn stations in Berlin, opened on 11 March 1902, with a remarkable Art Nouveau entrance hall by Alfred Grenander built in 1913. The station has two island platforms and a single platform, serving five tracks, at below ground level and under a single roof. The building was badly damaged in World War II and reconstructed afterwards.

One of the station platforms features a sign donated by London Transport in 1952 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the U-Bahn. This sign features the station's name in the distinctive round, red and blue style of signs on the London Underground.

The Wittenbergplatz square leads directly to the Tauentzienstraße, one of the major shopping streets in Berlin, where the Kaufhaus des Westens (Department Store of the West, KaDeWe for short) is located.

From 1980-83 the station was renovated by architect Borchardt. He won the price (gold medal) of the ministry of architecture in 1986.J. Meyer-Kronthaler, Berlins U-Bahnhöfe, Berlin: be.bra, 1996
