The whole U5+U55 can be seen under http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/70/Karte_berlin_u_u5.jpg
"Alexanderplatz" to "Berliner Rathaus" by 2014.
"Berliner Rathaus" to "Brandenburger Tor" by 2017/18.
The map is out of date since the extension to Tegel Airport, which will be closed in 2011, won't be built. If at all, an extension from "Lehrter Bahnhof" (="Hauptbahnhof") to "Turmstraße" might be attempted (transfer to U9). That would be the last extension of the U-Bahn for a long time. The system is fairly complete: http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Datei:Karte_ubahn_berlin.png&filetimestamp=20090809230456

I just saw that the Bundestag station was a location for a string of bad SciFi movies -- Resident Evil, Aeon Flux, Equilibrium. Compliment?!

Thanks for this update. They were in the final stages of completing the U55 when I was in Berlin, and it seemed pretty strange at the time that it was such a short line - but now I see how it will connect up with the U5 at Alexanderplatz. Keep posting, really enjoy your posts.
