Berlin's U-Bahn (short for Untergrundbahn, i.e. underground or subway network) is the oldest and largest metro network in Germany. The first section was opened in 1902 and it now has 9 lines, or 10 if you include the U55, which will later link up with the U5.
Trains run on all lines from around 5am to around midnight, and on Friday and Saturday night there is a night service on some lines.
