Kurfürstenstraße is a U-Bahn station on Berlin's U-Bahn line U1. It was opened in 1926 together with the inauguration of a new stretch of line between Gleisdreieck and Wittenbergplatz. This stretch (German: Entlastungsstrecke) - built mainly in tunnels - complements the existing viaduct section of line between the two stations via Bülowstraße (U2) and was built to increase capacity between the eastern and western parts of the Kleinprofil network. It also enabled the connection of the U4 to the rest of the network.
Kurfürstenstraße was renovated sometime during the 1980s and is now tiled in faded pastel tones.
The area around the station - particularly the Kurfürstenstraße itself - is very salubrious and infamous for its street prostitution scene.
Note: don't confuse Kurfürstenstraße with Kurfürstendamm.
Kurfürstenstrasse is in VBB fare zone A.
