Template:Infobox station

Ebertplatz is a major underground station on the Cologne Stadtbahn lines 5, 12, 15, 16 and 18, located in Cologne. The station lies at Ebertplatz on the Cologne Ring in the district of Innenstadt.

History

The station was opened in 1974 and consists of a mezzanine and two island platforms with four rail tracks. Before 2008, the station also offered two side platforms on the outer tracks, so passengers could (de)board on both sides. This was due to the fact that the station was also used by single ended tram cars, so each track had to have a platform on the right. To gain accessibility, the platforms for the trains from and to Dom/Hbf had to be elevated, as high-floor cars operate on this route. However, the other tracks, leading to the Ringe tunnel, are, only used by low-floor cars, so the island platforms were split in the middle into a low and a high side. Therefore, the platforms were widened, using the space by the former outer platforms which thus were removed.
