Berlin Heidelberger Platz is a railway station in the Wilmersdorf district of Berlin. It is served by S-Bahn lines S 41, S 42 and S 46 and U-Bahn line U 3.

The station on the Berlin Ringbahn was opened with the name "Schmargendorf" on 15 December 1883. In 1980 the S-Bahn service was discontinued and the former entrance hall eventually became a nightclub. On 17 December 1993 the S-Bahn station was reopened, now directly connected to the adjacent U-Bahn station and therefore renamed Heidelberger Platz.

The U-Bahn station opened on 12 October 1913 (arch.W.Leitgebel).[1] With its high groin vault it is one of the most brightly decorated of the Berlin network. The eponymous square was named after the city of Heidelberg.
