I started one of my photo walking tours at U-Bahn station “Lindauer Allee”. I’ve never been there before and was fascinated by the colourful design. It looked like an Art-Deco design from the 1920s.

So I was very surprised to read that it opened on 24 September 1994, as part of the extension of the U8 to Wittenau. The station is tiled in green, violet light blue and yellow with trees depicted on the walls. The symbolize a lime tree because the name “Lindau” derives from the German word for lime tree (Lindenbaum).

Absolutely worth a visit.
