Long Description:

Der U-Bahnhof Eissporthalle ist ein Bahnhof der U-Bahn Frankfurt, in unmittelbarer Nähe befindet sich die namensgebende Eissporthalle. Die Station wurde am 30. Mai 1992 eröffnet und wird von der Linie U7 bedient.
Die Säulen der Station sind mit blauen Metallplatten versehen. Die Wände sind rot mit Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografien des Künstlers Gerald Domenig. Sie zeigen Momentaufnahmen der näheren Umgebung aus den frühen 1990er Jahren.
Durch das starke Gefälle der über der Station führenden Straße, muß am südlichen Zugang auf die in Frankfurt übliche B-Ebene verzichtet werden. Daher wurde hier ein größeres Glashaus errichtet, in dem sich auch die Fahrkartenautomaten befinden. Der direkte Zugang zum Bahnsteig ist in dieser Form in Frankfurt einmalig.

Due to the strong gradient of the street leading above the station, at the southern entrance, it was done without the usual Frankfurt B-level. Here was build a larger glass house, in which there are the ticket machines. In this way, the direct access to the platform is unique in Frankfurt.
