HistoryEdit

The station was constructed from 1912 to 1914 and opened on 12 September 1918 on the Walddörfer railway line. The station was served by steam trains until 29 September 1919 and re-opened after electrification of one track on 6 September 1920. A second electrified track opened in 1923.[1]

The station was located in a rural environment until the 1950s, when a local community center developed east of the station. Because the main entrance was at Berner Heerweg west of the station, the entranceway was re-built and a second entrance from the east was added, the two entrances linked by a bridge across the U-Bahn tracks. A restaurant can be found in the former station building today.[1]

At the station, a third track without a platform is located. Originally built for goods transports of Altrahlstedt-Wohldorfer Kleinbahn (local railway), it was later re-built and used for brake tests and other U-Bahn test driving starting from nearby Farmsen railway workshop.[1]
