Location and structure edit

The Oldenfelde underground station was built between the Farmsen and Berne stops, which were about 2.6 km apart, the second longest distance between stops in the Hamburg underground network. It provides access to residential areas in which about 4500 people live.[7] Access to the station is from the street Busbrookhöhe to the west and, through a footpath leading to the southern end of the central platform, the street Am Knill to the east. An originally planned additional northern access was not realized due to a recently built playground.[8]

The existing service and test track running parallel to this section of line was not affected by the station's construction dimensions and was retained.
