Berlin-Wilhelmsruh (in German S-Bahnhof Berlin-Wilhelmsruh) is a railway station in the neighbourhood of Reinickendorf right adjacent to the locality of Wilhelmsruh, in the city of Berlin, Germany. Until the 1938 administrative border shift the station happened to be within the boundaries of Wilhelmsruh. It is served by the Berlin S-Bahn and a local bus. The reconnection of the station with the Berlin–Groß Schönebeck Railway is planned.

The railway station also represented the junction of two abandoned branches of the Prussian Northern Railway and the Heidekraut Railway. Due to its position outside the Wall (in Reinickendorf), from 1961 to 1989 the S-Bahn station was usable only for West Berlin,[1] at the southern entrance.[2] The Heidekraut rail terminal was instead moved to Rosenthal station, now abandoned.
