Berlin-Staaken is a railway station located in Staaken, a locality in the Spandau district of Berlin. It is, also with Berlin Albrechtshof, the only Berliner DB station not served by the S-Bahn.


The station is situated on the "Lehrter Bahn" Berlin-Wolfsburg-Hannover, between the stations of Berlin Spandau and Dallgow-Döberitz. The station has two platforms.

The first station in Staaken was opened in 1900. As the Iron Curtain after 1945 cut Staaken in two, West-Staaken became part of the Soviet Zone of Occupation while the rest remained with West-Berlin. Due to the lack of an own passenger station in West-Staaken the old goods station, now called Staaken Kr. Nauen has been used for passenger transport, while the West-Berlin part was still able to use the S-Bahn´ station. The S-Bahn station Staaken was then shut down after a major strike in 1980, and never reopened. Both stations were demolished after 1996 during the construction of the ICE route to Hanover. A brand new station, at the site of the old goods station, was then handed over to the public in 1998.
