Description:
Theodor-Heuss-Platz is a station of the Berlin U-Bahn located in the Westend district on the line.

Overview

When the station first opened on March 29, 1908 it was named Reichskanzlerplatz after the eponymous square laid out between 1904 and 1908, referring to the office of Chancellor of Germany and its inaugural holder Otto von Bismarck. It had been built according to plans of Alfred Grenander in the course of the second western extension of the 1902 Stammstrecke route, which originally ran from Warschauer Brücke (today: Warschauer Straße) to Knie (today: Ernst-Reuter-Platz). At the same time the stations of Sophie-Charlotte-Platz and Kaiserdamm were put in operation. Two weeks before the opening Emperor William II had the occasion of a first trip on the new line on March 14, 1908. Reichskanzlerplatz remained the western terminus until the station Stadion (today: Olympia-Stadion) opened in 1913.

In the course of the Nazi takeover the square and the station were renamed Adolf-Hitler-Platz on April 21, 1933 (Hitler had an apartment nearby at the time ; the building of Hilterjungen was on this place). After the Second World War the Allies reverted the name to Reichskanzlerplatz, which remained until December 18, 1963, when square and station were renamed after President Theodor Heuss, who had died six days before.
