The Most Extraordinary Subway Station Entrance Is In Frankfurt, Germany

Subway stations are not usually go-to spots to see cool architecture, but many cities around the world make commuting more fun by turning their transit hubs into works of art. While the best design is usually seen underground, an extraordinary subway entrance in Frankfurt, Germany brings artistic architecture to a new level.


Situated in the city center, the Bockenheimer Warte subway entrance looks like an old tram car crashing into the concrete sidewalk. This is not the work of the Hulk, but an innovative architect named Zbigniew Peter Pininski. Initially built in 1986, he was inspired by the work of surrealist artist René Magritte when creating it. Pininski intended to encourage a positive reaction from locals that were concerned about the extension of the city’s transport network.


The reaction from locals at the time is hard to determine, but undoubtedly, this unique subway entrance would jolt you out of your boring morning commute. Although it looks just like a tram car half-buried in rubble, it’s perfectly safe to climb down the stairs into the main station.


The subway station recently underwent an expansion in 2001, but the original entrance still stands. If you’re ever in Frankfurt, it’s worth hopping off the subway to take a look, even if it’s not your stop.
