In 1968, the decision was made to build the subway. This also meant the end of the Stadtbahn (‘city railway’).

In 1971, preparations were started for a trial operation for the first section from Friedensbrücke-Heiligenstadt. On May 8, 1976, the first line, the U4, was put into operation.

As the second line, the U1 line was put into operation on 1978.
