Birkenwerder (German: Bahnhof Birkenwerder) is a railway station in the town of Birkenwerder, Brandenburg, Germany. The station lies of the Berlin Northern Railway and the train services are operated by Deutsche Bahn including Berlin S-Bahn services.

Some of the station's tracks are electrified using both DC using the third rail system of the Berlin S-Bahn and AC using the overhead line system of the Deutsche Bahn long-distance lines.[1]

The so-called "Rote Brücke" (red bridge), a pedestrian bridge that leads over the railway tracks, is a protected monument.

On 31 May 1992, S1 trains were extended to Hohen Neuendorf, and to Oranienburg after the fall of Berlin Wall. The East Berlin stretch of the line (now S8) was shortened to terminate at this station.
