|List of railway stations in the Berlin area|
Westend is a station in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin. It is located on the Ringbahn circle line, served by the S-Bahn lines S41, S42 and S46. It is named after the Westend locality, which is immediately adjacent to the staion grounds.
It is located on Spandauer Damm near Charlottenburg Palace and its gardens, where the Ringbahn railway line runs parallel to the Bundesautobahn 100 (Stadtring). The platform can be reached from a road bridge crossing both the tracks and the motorway.
The station was opened as Charlottenburg-Westend in 1877, then on the area of the independent town of Charlottenburg, where the outward road led to Spandau in the west. From 1884 the installations were significantly extended, when the station comprised a Neo-Renaissance entrance building and four platforms connected by a pedestrian tunnel.
