There was an exit for foreign people (not for west-berliner citizens) but, of course, there was a border check point and you had to pass a passport control.

I would guess that's the only example of border control in a metro in world history?

The S-Bahn has its own thread. This one is for Berlin Underground only.

As lines share the same track inside the city and then fan out towards the edges, the innercity density is almost metro-like, while in the suburbs it is more like communter rail. If we take the planned schedule and not the catastrophic emergency transport of the last couple of months, it is a frequency of every 2, 3, 5 or off-off peak 7 or 10 minutes on the inner city strecth of the lines (on or inside of the Ring), and on the outer districts stretch dwindles from 5 to 10, 20 or on one off-the-beat strech even 40 minutes.

Not really the same situation but there is a border control between Shenzhen and Hong-Kong, with a metro station on both sides.

Yeah, Lo Wu Station of the Hong Kong MTR has a single huge exit through a border crossing into Lou Hu on the Shenzehn side (where the Shezhen Metro also terminates). 100000000+ people cross there a year, I think that gives Friedrichstrasse some serious compitition. Granted it is an technically internal border these days, but it is not treated as one and Mainland Chineese still need a visa to cross through it.

Similar deal at Lok Ma Chau/Huang Gang.

Actually the West/East Berlin crossing was also an internal border, between sectors of a city which was under Allied military occupation.

Yes I know that, but that's not answering my question, so I try again.
HOW did they build the subway? Machines, methods etc.

I love the pictures of the old stations (pre- WWII), do you guys have any more pics?
And, are they modernizing all the stations?

What is that? The Barbie Airport Express ? Glad they redid the interiors on those trains. My girlfriend and I may be visiting Berlin as part of our honeymoon this coming summer.
