Rüdesheimer Platz is a Berlin U-Bahn station located in the Wilmersdorf district on the U3.

The station opened on October 12, 1913. The eponymous square was named after the town of Rüdesheim am Rhein in Hesse, famous for its Rheingau wines. Willy Leitgebel constructed it like the nearby station Heidelberger Platz and Breitenbachplatz in a very pompous way. Mosaics, a lot of details and granite columns can be found there. It was closed a few months during the war, opened in 1945 and renovated in 1988. Since then pictures are shown on the walls of the station. In 2005 the platform of the station was renovated again (new color, new floor) [1]
