West Berlin's (Central-) Station was name sake for the song 'Zoo Station'. In addition the'Achtung Baby' booklet features a photo from one of the station’s subways. Zoo Station is also the starting point of the bus journey in the 'Stay'-Video.

The station became world famous already years earlier following the drug novel and film of the same name, 'Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo' (‘Christiane F.’).
The building has been extensively renovated in the meantime, and the historical rooms of the terraces at the zoo are now home to a specialist in system catering.

During the 2nd half of the Europa Leg of the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour U2 added the song Zoo Station to their setlist. The station-sign Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten appeared on the monitor below the catwalk.
