Between S+U Wittenau metro (U-Bahn) and urban rail station (S-Bahn) and S+U Hermannstraße metro (U-Bahn) and urban rail station (S-Bahn)
The U8 has 24 stations and is 18 kilometers long. It is the second north/south line, running from Wittenau via Gesundbrunnen to Neukölln.
Kaiser Wilhelm II was impressed by the suspension railway he saw during a visit to Wuppertal in 1900, so AEG drafted plans for both underground and elevated rail systems. A period of tough negotiations with the city of Berlin followed, until the two parties finally agreed on a contract in 1912 and work could begin. Not until the end of the twenties were major parts of the line completed.
