Fotograf dokumentiert Haltestellen

So haben Sie die Münchner U-Bahn noch nie gesehen

+
Die U3-Haltestelle „Oberwiesenfeld“.

München - Ein New Yorker Fotograf hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht alle U-Bahnstationen in München zu fotografieren und dabei echte Design-Schätze entdeckt. Hier sehen Sie die schönsten Bilder.

Rund 566 Millionen Fahrgäste transportierte die Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft im letzten Jahr quer durch München. Dabei ist die U-Bahn das meistfrequentierte Verkehrsmittel - das sieht man auch an den Zahlen: Insgesamt gibt es mehr U-Bahn-Züge als innerstädtische Busse. Doch wie aufmerksam ist man als regelmäßiger Fahrgast, dem die U-Bahn als reines Transportmittel von A nach B dient? Wann haben Sie sich zuletzt einen U-Bahnhof genauer angesehen? Wahrscheinlich ist das schon eine Weile her. 

Schade eigentlich, denn die Münchner U-Bahnhöfe sind für Design- und Architektur-Fans teilweise ein echter Hingucker. Ein Fotograf aus New York, Claudio Galamini, hat das ebenfalls erkannt und es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht so viele Münchner U-Bahnhöfe wie möglich zu fotografieren. 

Auf seinem Instagram-Profil sammelt er die Bilder zusammen mit ein paar Informationen zu der jeweiligen Haltestelle. Die Idee dazu kam Galamini nach seinem Umzug von New York nach Berlin, wo er bereits alle 173 U-Bahnstationen abgelichtet hat. Nun ist also auch München an der Reihe und das Ergebnis kann sich durchaus sehen lassen.

Die schönsten Münchner Haltestellen - eine Auswahl:

Good morning! Georg Brauchle was the vice mayor of Munich until 1968 and this station was dedicated to his memory when opened on 18 October 2003. The design of the walls has been directed by the artists Franz Ackermann. The rear track walls are decorated with pictures both from the nearby environment as well as from around the world such as Berlin or New York and the whole piece is called "The Great Journey". I read that the total amount of panels is 400 and that each wall weigh about 30 tons. The station is built bright and clear with its continuous 7.50-meter pillarless big hall. It was celebrated on the opening day as "Munich's most beautiful Metro Station" by local newspapers. A very impressive one, go and take a look if you're around.

Hallo and happy Sunday! Today we see the most used station to reach the Oktoberfest! During these 2 weeks, the station handles 21,000 passengers per hour each direction. How many of you have been through here but don't remember or didn't notice? The name is taken directly from the area where the Oktoberfest takes place and basically this is the main use for this station. Infact, in other times of the year, the platform is quite empty. A special feature is the supervisory kiosk in the middle of the platform, from which the passenger's flow is controlled during the Oktoberfest. In Munich, a similar feature is found only at the Fröttmaning station (we will visit it later on). The role of the station as the most important development for the Oktoberfest is also reflected in the design. The architect Alexander von Branca designed the platform to resemble a Bräukeller or beer tent, in the typical Munich's colors. The wall murals by Ricarda Dietz also recall the big event's attractions. The general effect is of a very beautiful but rather dark station. Prost! Leave your comments and tag your friends.

Good morning! This outside station opened on 19 October 1971 and up until 1994 was the northern terminal of the U6. The original name planned for it was Kieferngartenstraße but it was then decided Kieferngarten. Basically the message is that we find ourselves in an area strongly populated by pine trees. Yes, Kiefern means pine trees. Enjoy your day and see you tomorrow. Leave your comments and tag your friends.

Happy Sunday! 15 April 1983; this is when this station opened and around this period is when platforms in Munich started to be designed a bit more colorful. Before that, they were quite unexciting. We have already seen a few and we will see more in the next days. Anyways, here the walls go from cream to dark green repeatedly. Also green are the tiles covering the columns and various doors. I promise you, the effect is striking, I really like this station and will post more pictures of it in the future. One more thing, The Partnach is a Bavarian river, approximately 18 km long. This river also crosses Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Leave your comments.

Happy Saturday everyone! Rough! This is how to describe the walls here. They are left almost exactly as during construction. This style is both saving the city lots of time and money and was often applied here in Munich. The concrete rustic piles are only painted in rusty-brown color, resulting in an interesting contrast in combination with the bright lights over the platform. The station, opened on 28 October 1989, provides a connection to the S-Bahn lines, as well as regional trains. However, between the U-Bahn and the S-Bahn stations, there is a walk of about 400 meters. So, do not bring heavy luggages, I guess Ciao, bis morgen.

Happy Sunday! What a beautiful station we visit today! You're looking at the south wall of this station's platform, covered in black and white labyrinth-like pattern. The north wall is completely covered in orange panels. Also, in addition to light bands, 15 pyramidal skylights illuminate with natural light the 120 meter long platform. Through one of these skylights an elevator leads directly to the surface. In my opinion the effect is amazing. The station opened on 28 October 2007; the originally planned name was Olympiapark Nord - since we are on the northern end of the Olympiapark, near the Olympic Village - but it was then changed before the opening. Ciao, see you next week (tomorrow).

Good morning! So, here is the catch: this station is very beautiful and it's probably one of the most photographed in Munich but ... not the walls It opened on 24 May 1998 and in 2001, 11 large lamps designed by Ingo Maurer, measuring 3.80 metres in diameter, were installed and bathe now the station in blue, red and yellow light. Let's just say that this station is very photogenic and is often used by advertising agencies - and instagrammers alike. It's also on an album cover: check out Keep On Movin' by The Haggis Horns. At the west end the station is reached by sunlight through a skylight, dividing the whole platform into different colors. Together with the rough untreated walls it is reminiscent of a very colorful cave. Originally the architect wanted a glass to cover the walls but then he liked it rough so much better that it was decided to leave it uncovered. However, the walls had to be secured in 2003 with a steel net as chunks were repeatedly falling off the walls. Also, big THANKS and ❤️ to @mucbook and @artsinmunich for featuring my project on their blogs! Ciao, bis morgen.

Good morning! The station opened on 31 October 2004 and it's connected directly to the shopping center by the same name. The "OEZ" was built as many buildings in the eastern Moosach in the time of the Olympic boom and therefore bears this name. The one pictured is the platform for the U1 line, which has here its most northern terminal. It's possible connecting to the U3, which was built later (we'll see that platform soon) and, at time of construction, this was already taken in consideration and planned accordingly. The pillarless station has side platforms and a wingspan of over 17 meters, the largest self-supporting reinforced concrete slab in the Munich subway. The walls are covered with folded steel plates and bright stone floors and mirrored wall panels provide a pleasant atmosphere- even though, in my opinion, the station looks older than it is. Amazing feature: a covered park-and-ride for bikes! Ciao, bis morgen.

Hello! Are you wondering what does the western terminus of the U5 line look like? Here it is. We are in the district called Laim. Originally its own independent locality, Laim existed even before Munich. It was first documented between 1047 and 1053 as a village. The municipality was successively formed in 1818 and consolidated into Munich on 1 January 1900. The name Leim comes from the German word Lehm meaning clay and Lehmboden meaning clay soil. I know you were wondering where the name came from and so, here it is! Opening day: 24 March 1988. The design is basically what you see pictured; the ceiling is also covered with the same yellowish panels. Ciao, bis morgen.

Good morning! We have seen these untreated walls before but don't be fooled, this station is architecturally unique and beautiful and is equally unusual for the Munich network. It is open on one side with a large "eye" toward the green area "Am Hohen Weg" and over it, it's an elaborate shell-shaped roof glass structure. Even looking from the outside, the glass dome is quite impressive. This provided for the engineers a major challenge since it had to be produced as cheaply as possible and yet satisfy the aesthetic demands of Munich's Building Department. My recommendation; go see this station with your own eyes, I believe it's worth it. About the name: for all I know, Saint-Quirin is a town in Lorraine, France. Opening day: 9 November 1997. Ciao, bis morgen.
