Even though construction was completed in 1994, it took over a decade until the subway line U55 went into service in August 2009. In the intervening period, the partially completed station with its high ceiling and unusual architecture served as a location for cultural events like performances of the opera The Magic Flute and saw use as a film set for the Resident Evil film series, for Æon Flux and for Equilibrium.
As of 2013[update], only the eastern face of the island platform is open where the shuttle service stops in both directions. When the full U5 line completed west of Alexanderplatz the western platform face will serve trains towards Alexanderplatz and the present eastern platform face will serve trains towards Hauptbahnhof.
