Inside the Nordbahnhof S-Bahn station the exhibition “Border Stations and Ghost Stations in Divided Berlin” This was one of my favorite exhibitions since it was actually set in an old ghost station. Ghost stations were subway stations that were completely closed between 1961 and 1989. They were heavily guarded since they were West German subway lines which ran through East Germany. Bricked up entrances, guard stations and elaborate escape detection systems – fascinating stuff. It’s a small exhibition, and will only take you abut 30 minutes to go through in depth, but it’s well worth a stop if you want to learn more about divided Berlin.
