It was built in 1913 as one of the original U3 stations. At the beginning it was only an underground station, decorated in Jugendstil style. The Pop Art retro-futuristic building we can see today came into existance as a part of the extension on the U7 line. It was designed by Rainer G. Rümmler. The station was built between 1968 and 1972.
