Entrance to Stadtpark u-bahn station

Stadtpark U-Bahn station

I love the old-fashioned style subway/u-bahn station. The station was originally built in 1899 as a train station. It was closed in 1918 and reopened in 1925 as a part of the city railway system (Wiener Stadtbahn). During the 1970s, the Stadtbahn was integrated into the u-bahn/subway system and became part of the U4 and U6 lines. Stadtpark station is part of the U4 line and is the only station on this line that remains mostly in it's original form.
