Berlin-Lichterfelde West (in German Bahnhof Berlin-Lichterfelde West) is a railway station in the district of Lichterfelde within the city of Berlin, Germany. It is served by the Berlin S-Bahn and several local bus lines.

The station was built in 1872 in the style of a Tuscan villa as a train station for the elegant development of Villenkolonie Lichterfelde West, a newly created expensive residential area for wealthy Berliners.

From 1946 until 1993 Lichterfelde-West was the terminus of the Duty-Train of the United States Forces in Berlin.
