List of railway stations in the Berlin area

Berlin Heidelberger Platz is a railway station in the Wilmersdorf district of Berlin. It is served by S-Bahn lines S41, S42 and S46 and U-Bahn line U3.

The station on the Berlin Ringbahn was opened with the name "Schmargendorf" on December 15, 1883. In 1980 the S-Bahn service was discontinued and the former entrance hall eventually became a nightclub. On December 17, 1993 the S-Bahn station was reopened, now directly connected to the adjacent U-Bahn station and therefore renamed Heidelberger Platz.

The U-Bahn station opened on October 12, 1913 (arch.W.Leitgebel).[1] With its high groin vault it is one of the most brightly decorated of the Berlin network. The eponymous square was named after the city of Heidelberg.
