Klosterstraße (Berlin U-Bahn)

POI: 52.516944, 13.412222
Klosterstraße is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U2 in the central Mitte district. The eponymous street is named after the Graues Kloster, a medieval Franciscan abbey, which later housed the Berlinisches Gymnasium zum Grauen Kloster.
History
The station opened on 1 July 1913 in the course of the eastern continuation of Berlin's second U-Bahn line from Spittelmarkt to Alexanderplatz. Architect Alfred Grenander planned a station featuring three tracks serving a branch-off toward eastbound Große Frankfurter Straße that was never built and in 1930 was replaced by the U5 line. Today the broad platform between the two tracks with its asymmetric row of pillars is evidence of the original intention. The well-preserved station received protected landmark status as early as 1975. It was extensively restored in its original style prior to Berlin's 750-year jubilee in 1987, including the installation of a historic A-I type car of the U4 line at the northern end of the platform.
