OK, I’m officially declaring this week Subway Week. After I shared with you the imposing beauty of the Moscow underground and the artistic metro of Stockholm, it’s time for a change of style: let’s take a look at the sleek design of Munich’s subway.
The U-Bahn, as the subway is called in Germany, stands for Untergrundbahn or “underground railway“. The Munich U-Bahn began operation in 1971, pretty late compared to other large European cities.
The Munich U-Bahn system currently comprises eight lines, serving 96 stations and covering 95 kilometers. It’s one of the safer subways in the world, with no major accidents ever happening there.
Photographer Nick Frank has taken some stunning photo’s of Munich’s sleek, modern subway stations. They are an attraction in their own right, well worth visiting should you ever get to visit Munich.
