The station opened on 1 August 1879 on the Wetzlarer Bahn from Berlin to Blankenheim and Wetzlar, the southwestern continuation of the Stadtbahn. It was originally named Hundekehle after a nearby lake and received its current name on 15 October 1884, when the former Grunewald station reopened under the name of Halensee. The entrance hall modelled on a castle gate was finished in 1899. Berlin-Grunewald was connected to the S-Bahn network on 11 June 1928.
Starting on 18 October 1941 the adjacent goods station until February 1945 was one of the major sites of deportation of Jews from Berlin. The trains left for ghettos in Eastern Europe such as Lodz, Litzmannstadt and Warsaw. In 1942 trains left directly for Auschwitz and Theresienstadt concentration camps. A total of 35 trains transporting 17,000 Jews departed from Platform 17 (German: Gleis 17) directly to Auschwitz. By the end of the war more than 50,000 Jews had been deported through this station.
On 18 October 1991 a monument was inaugurated at the ramp leading to the former freight yard.
On 27 January 1998 the Deutsche Bahn established a memorial entitled "Gleis 17" (Platform 17). The installation records the dates of the transports, the number of people they carried and their destinations.
