Halensee is a station in the Halensee (former Wilmersdorf) district of Berlin. It is served by the S-Bahn lines S41, S42 and S46.[1]


It is located at the prosaic western end of the Kurfürstendamm, one of Berlin's most famous and important boulevards and near the lake Halensee, after which the small locality of the city and the station take their names. The station is also served by four bus lines, two of which run continuously and one of which is an express service, as well as one line at night.


A first station named Grunewald south of the present platform opened on 15 November 1877 at the western Ringbahn railway line. It was shifted toward the Kurfürstendamm a few years later and reopened on 15 October 1884 as Halensee, including a Neo-Romanesque entrance building, while the present Berlin-Grunewald railway station received its name. Third rail S-Bahn service commenced on 6 November 1928. The entrance hall was heavily damaged by air raids in World War II and finally demolished in 1958.

Just north of the station, there is a single-track curve connecting to the Stadtbahn at Charlottenburg , which is not officially part of any line. However, the curve sees a handful of passenger services per day and there is thus an infrequent service between the Ringbahn and the Stadtbahn.[2]
