English Wittenbergplatz

Wittenbergplatz is a square in the central Schöneberg district of Berlin, Germany. One of the main plazas in the "City West" area, it is known for the large Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe) department store on its southwestern side.

It was laid out between 1889 and 1892 in the course of the urban development in the western suburbs of Berlin's Wilhelmine Ring according to the Hobrecht-Plan. The square was then part of a major boulevard running from Kreuzberg to Charlottenburg with numerous sections named after victorious commanders in the German Campaign during the Napoleonic Wars, colloquially called Generalszug. The westernmost section was named Tauentzienstraße after General Bogislav von Tauentzien, who had received the honorific title von Wittenberg after the storming of the French-occupied town of Wittenberg on 14 February 1814 (although General Lieutenant Leopold Wilhelm von Dobschütz had actually led the Prussian troops). Therefore, the adjacent square got the name Wittenbergplatz

Since then, the square forms the eastern terminus of Tauentzienstraße, today a major shopping street, connecting it with Breitscheidplatz in the west. In 1902 Wittenbergplatz station opened on the first Berlin U-Bahn line (Stammstrecke); ten years later, it was rebuilt including an impressive entrance hall in the centre of the square, designed by Alfred Grenander. The KaDeWe department store opened in 1907 on the corner of Wittenbergplatz and Tauentzienstraße, it is today the largest department store in Continental Europe. The northern side of the square is home to street markets four times a week. The south side of the square features the fountain Lebensalter.

Входит в состав так называемого «генеральского тракта», в составе которого улицы и площади названы в честь прусских военачальников эпохи наполеоновских войн. Прямоугольная площадь получила название в 1864 году в честь битвы против французов при Виттенберге 13 января 1814 года и была отстроена в 1889—1892 годах. Современный облик площадь приобрела в 1990-е годы.

Italian Wittenbergplatz

Wittenbergplatz è una piazza di Berlino, nel quartiere di Schöneberg.

È una delle piazze ornamentali (Schmuckplatz) dell'asse del Generalszug, posta fra Tauentzienstraße e Kleiststraße. È dedicata alla battaglia di Wittenberg del 1813, combattuta contro le truppe napoleoniche.

Al centro della piazza si trova l'edificio d'ingresso all'omonima stazione della metropolitana sotterranea. La stazione era stata aperta nel 1902; nel 1913 la costruzione di nuove linee rese necessario l'ampliamento, progettato dall'arch. Alfred Grenander. I forti danni riportati nella Seconda Guerra Mondiale vennero riparati nel 1951. L'interno della stazione acquistò allora un aspetto moderno e non corrispondente all'originale.

Solo nel 1982/83 venne riportato allo stile del 1913; soprattutto la parte interna corrisponde fedelmente all'atmosfera dell'epoca d'origine.

Wittenbergplatz continua ad essere un importante nodo della rete, con fermata delle linee U1, U2 e U3 e con diverse linee di autobus diurne e notturne in superficie.

Ai due angoli con Tauentzienstraße sorgono il grande magazzino KaDeWe e il Philipshaus.

Uma das principais praças da área "Cidade Oeste", é conhecida pela grande loja de departamentos Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe) no seu lado sudoeste.Foi construída entre 1889 e 1892 no decurso do desenvolvimento urbano nos subúrbios ocidentais do Anel Wilhelmine de Berlim, de acordo com o Plano Hobrecht. A praça era então parte de uma grande avenida que corre de Kreuzberg a Charlottenburg com numerosas secções nomeadas pelos comandantes vitoriosos na Campanha alemã durante as Guerras Napoleónicas, chamadas coloquialmente Generalszug. A secção mais ocidental foi designada como Tauentzienstraße em homenagem ao general Bogislav von Tauentzien, que recebeu o título honorífico de von Wittenberg após o assalto à cidade de Wittenberg, ocupada pelos franceses, em 14 de fevereiro de 1814 (embora o tenente-general Leopold Wilhelm von Dobschütz tenha liderado as tropas prussianas). Portanto, a praça adjacente obteve o nome Wittenbergplatz.

Desde então, o quadrado forma o terminal oriental da Tauentzienstraße, hoje uma importante rua comercial, conectando-a com Breitscheidplatz no oeste. Em 1902, a estação Wittenbergplatz abriu na primeira linha U-Bahn de Berlim (Stammstrecke); dez anos depois, foi reconstruído, incluindo um impressionante hall de entrada no centro da praça, desenhado por Alfred Grenander. A loja de departamentos KaDeWe abriu em 1907 na esquina da Wittenbergplatz e Tauentzienstraße, é hoje a maior loja de departamentos da Europa Continental. O lado norte da praça é lar de mercados de rua quatro vezes por semana. O lado sul da praça possui a fonte Lebensalter
