Through Berlin's underground with the U-Bahn Convertible

A special city tour for tourists and Berliners

People wearing hard hats sit on top of the subway convertible as it passes through a subway station.

One subway station as a potato cellar, another as a nuclear bunker for up to 3300 people? These are not wild fantasies on our part, but just two of many exciting and surprising stories that are hidden behind Berlin's subway stations. You can find out more about them on the most unusual city tour of the capital!

In an open subway car, you will travel at around 35 km/h through the Berlin subway tunnels. The tour lasts about 2 hours, during which our host will provide you with interesting facts and curiosities about the structural features and history of the Berlin subway.
