u bahn olympiastadion berlin
The station Stadion was opened on 8 June 1913 together with the Deutsches Stadion, predecessor of the Olympic Stadium. Due to World War I the 1916 Summer Olympics, for which the building of the stadium was intended, were cancelled and regular train service at the Stadion station was not available until 1922. Subsequent to Berlin’s successful application for the 1936 Summer Olympics, the renowned U-Bahn architect Alfred Grenander redesigned the building and the station was named Reichssportfeld.
