The Berlin – Görlitz railway line is a main line in Berlin , Brandenburg and Saxony , which was originally built and operated by the Berlin-Görlitz Railway Company . It leads from Berlin via Cottbus to Görlitz . The section from Berlin to Cottbus is electrified.


The route runs from Berlin , via Königs Wusterhausen , Lübben , Lübbenau / Spreewald , Cottbus , Spremberg , Weißwasser and Horka to Görlitz . It originally began at Görlitzer Bahnhof in Berlin, a terminus station that was demolished in 1962. Today the trains come from the Berlin Stadtbahn and Ringbahn . The route continues through the Spreewald , Muskau Arch and Upper Lusatian Heath and Pond Area to the southeast of Berlin, through Lower and Upper Lusatia to the railway junction in Görlitz.

The line is only double-tracked from Berlin to Lübbenau; it is electrified on this section and beyond to Cottbus. Only in the area of ​​the Königs Wusterhausen train station is only one continuous track available for both directions.

The continuation of the line in Görlitz is the Neißetalbahn in the direction of Zittau . The original continuation ran until 1945 along the Görlitz – Seidenberg railway to the former Prussian - Austrian border.

The route number 6007 of the S-Bahn on the Görlitzer Bahn now counts from Ostkreuz . This includes the Südringkurve there to Warschauer Straße , which is only used by trains from / to the Görlitzer Bahn.

Plan of the exhibition station in Treptow
The old station building in Görlitz

Plans for a railway line from Berlin to Görlitz had existed since 1852. Its construction was carried out by the "railway king" Bethel Henry Strousberg as general contractor . Strousberg only covered a small part of his costs with cash, the construction companies who carried out the work mostly received shares in return, the value of which changed with the progress of construction. The first groundbreaking took place on April 13, 1865 near Treptow . The project was considerably accelerated by the Austro-Prussian War . From June 13, 1866, the first military trains ran between Berlin and Kottbus , and on September 13, 1866, the Berlin-Görlitzer Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft started limited travel and freight traffic on the same section. The entire line went into operation on December 31, 1867. The construction costs amounted to 36 million thalers, the equivalent of 10 million marks .

On June 1, 1874, the second track went into operation between the Ringbahn, which opened in 1871 and crossed the Görlitzer Bahn near Treptow, and Grünau . Additional bus trains with box locomotives and double-deck cars ran between Berlin Görlitzer Bahnhof and Grünau . In 1882 the company became the property of the State of Prussia and thus became part of the Prussian State Railways . On September 17, 1890, the second track between Grünau and Königs Wusterhausen went into operation. In 1893 the section from Königs Wusterhausen to Kottbus followed, and in 1894 the short stretch from Görlitz station in Berlin to the Ringbahn.

In 1896 the station exhibition existed at km 2.7 with seven tracks, including five butt tracks, on four platforms. It was built especially for the public at the Berlin trade fair of 1896 and closed again after it ended. The station was connected to the Ringbahn via a separate pair of tracks.

On August 7, 1905, after a fault in the service, two trains collided head-on between Spremberg and Runde, killing 19 people and seriously injuring 40 others.

Around 1906 the entire railway line of the Görlitzer Bahn in the Berlin area was raised in order to avoid crossings with road traffic at the same level. As part of this, additional tracks were laid between Berlin ( city and ring line ) and Grünau for the heavy Berlin suburban traffic . The stations received additional platforms on these suburban tracks. These received power rails until 1929 and have been part of the Berlin S-Bahn network ever since . In 1951 the S-Bahn tracks were extended to Königs Wusterhausen.

As a reparation payment , one of the two line tracks was dismantled after 1945. From 1970 the re-installation of the second track began step by step, but the majority of the route is still single-track over a length of 112.9 km between Lübbenau and Görlitz.

In 1951, the Görlitz train station in Berlin was closed to passenger traffic, and freight traffic continued until 1985. In 1988 the section Berlin Grünauer Kreuz - Lübbenau and 1989 Lübbenau - Cottbus was electrified with overhead lines.

In February 2010, the double-track, electrified east connection of the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) was approved and completed just one year later. It joins the Görlitzer Bahn between Eichwalde and Grünau with a single-track northern and southern connecting curve at the same level. The old freight line to the tank farm Berlin Schönefeld Airport South ( " fuel rail"), which began at the station Grünau was taken end of March 2011 from service and subsequently degraded. Since then, the tank farm and the BER concrete plant have been operated on the new tracks of the east connection, with the connecting track branching off west of the BAB 113 and being electrified up to the transfer station .

With a decision of July 23, 2012, the Federal Railway Authority cleared an area of ​​4.5 hectares in the Treptow-Köpenick district between 0.9 and 2.2 kilometers from rail operations. This is the section between the Landwehr Canal and the Ringbahn, including the former south curve.

Expansion of the route

The shortest travel time from Görlitz to Berlin by express train was 3 hours 19 minutes in 1900, 3 hours 8 minutes in 1941, and today it is 2 hours 41 minutes to the main train station with a change in Cottbus.

ABS Berlin – Görlitz

The expansion of the line is included in the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2003 as an urgent requirement. The ABS Berlin – Görlitz project envisages the double-track expansion between Lübbenau and Cottbus, the increase in line speed to 160 km / h and the electrification of the Cottbus – Görlitz section with a planned investment volume of 237.9 million euros.

In 2008 the Lübbenau – Cottbus section was renovated and prepared for a speed of 160 km / h. An electronic signal box (ESTW-A) was set up in Vetschau , which is connected to ESTW-Z Lübbenau. At the end of November 2010 another electronic interlocking followed in Cottbus, the cost of which amounted to around 50 million euros. It replaced 13 old signal boxes and is remote-controlled from the operations center in Berlin-Pankow.

Lübbenau (Spreew) railway station

Between May 2010 and (according to the original plan) the end of April 2011, the 60 km long section Königs Wusterhausen – Lübbenau followed. The track and overhead line systems were completely renewed as part of a full closure. New electronic signal boxes were built in Königs Wusterhausen and Lübbenau. Several bog areas made the work difficult. The restart of the line was then delayed. a. due to repeated cable theft until September 2011. When the timetable changed on December 11, 2011, the line speed between Königs Wusterhausen and Cottbus could be increased to 160 km / h. The expansion could be brought forward through the use of funds from the federal economic stimulus programs. A total of 130 million euros were invested in these measures.

In March 2016, the state of Brandenburg and Deutsche Bahn agreed to expand the Lübbenau – Cottbus line to two tracks. The state assumed planning costs of 2.4 million euros. The first two planning phases have been completed and a contract is to be concluded with Deutsche Bahn, which regulates the further planning for the route expansion. With the expansion to a double-track line, the capacities for regional and long-distance traffic from Berlin to Cottbus and Wroclaw are to be increased. The expansion is to be completed in the years 2025 to 2027. The Lübbenau - Cottbus section, which has been single-tracked since 1945, is to be expanded to two-track.

While the time for the electrification of the section between Cottbus and Görlitz was not foreseeable at first, costs of up to 100 million euros were forecast, this is now one of the projects included in the federal government's package of measures.

In Horka, an electronic signal box is to go into operation in autumn 2022, which will also control the Mückenhain, Kodersdorf and Charlottenhof operations.Template: future / in 2 years

To the south of Weißwasser, the section for the Reichwalde opencast mine must also be relocated to the east on the B 115 . The planning for this is already in progress. Construction work is expected to begin in 2025 and be completed by the end of 2026.

Complete renovation in the Berlin area

On July 12, 2006, the groundbreaking ceremony took place for the thorough renovation of the line between the Berlin Ringbahn and Königs Wusterhausen, including the branch to Berlin-Schönefeld Airport, as part of the renovation of the Berlin S-Bahn, S9 Süd project . In addition to the facilities of the S-Bahn, this also applies to the parallel long-distance railway tracks in this section. This includes the renovation of Schöneweide train station and the renovation of seven railway overpasses, including the construction of new arched bridges over the Britzer connecting canal and the Teltow canal to widen the waterways. Furthermore, the renewal of the tracks, the erection of electronic signal boxes and the complete renewal of the traction power supply including substations and overhead line systems are planned. The planned costs are around EUR 350 million.

The single-track bottleneck of the long-distance line is to be removed at Königs Wusterhausen station. In addition, DB Netz AG is preparing the construction of a new sweeping track for line RB 22, which is to go into operation in December 2022.

The work on the Baumschulenweg and Adlershof train stations as well as the renewal of the bridges over the Britzer connecting canal and the Teltow canal have been completed. The second track at Wildau train station went into operation on September 30, 2013, and 10.55 million euros were invested for this and for the barrier-free expansion.

As the last major sub-project as part of the complete renovation of the Görlitzer Bahn in Berlin, work on modernizing the Berlin-Schöneweide train station began in March 2013. The bridges over the Sterndamm and the platforms will be renewed, the reception building modernized and the northern forecourt redesigned. A total of 45 million euros will be invested in this renovation. The construction work was originally supposed to be completed by 2018.

The recommissioning of the long-distance railway tracks between Ostkreuz and Schöneweide, which had been interrupted due to construction, was originally planned for the timetable change in December 2014. In October 2012, Deutsche Bahn tendered construction work for the renewal of the track and overhead line systems between Ostkreuz and Grünauer Kreuz. It was finally put back into operation in December 2015.

The 48 hectares of the former marshalling yard and depot Schöneweide are to be given a new use in the form of a commercial area. For this purpose, it is planned to clear and develop the area as well as to relocate three kilometers of the long-distance railway line leading out of town and to demolish some buildings. A new foot and cycle path bridge is to connect the Johannisthal landscape park with the Köllnische Heide via the railway line and the federal highway 96a . The Schöneweide S-Bahn station can then also be reached from the Johannisthaler side.

Today's train service

Today the route is mainly used for local passenger transport. The Berlin S-Bahn runs parallel to the regional trains on the Görlitzer Bahn. The regional traffic is realized by the regional train line 24 ( Eberswalde Hbf - Berlin Ostkreuz - Senftenberg , operated by DB Regio ) and regional express line 2 ( Wismar - Berlin - Cottbus Hbf , operated by the Ostdeutsche Eisenbahn ).

The RB 24 line uses the route from the beginning in the Berlin urban area and stops at all en route stations south of the Königs Wusterhausen train station to Lübbenau, where the trains change to the line from Lübbenau to Kamenz in the direction of Senftenberg. After the completion of the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport , the plan is to run the RB 24 loop through the new airport train station.

The RE 2 line uses the route from Grünauer Kreuz in Berlin to the terminus Cottbus Hbf and stops at Brand Tropical Islands , Lübben (Spreewald) and Vetschau, only individual journeys stop at all stations between Lübbenau and Cottbus.

On the Cottbus - Görlitz section runs the RB 65 (Cottbus - Zittau ) line of the East German Railway , which replaced the Lausitz Railway when the timetable changed on December 14, 2008 .

In addition, a pair of intercity trains ( Norddeich Mole - Cottbus) runs over the route. Until December 2014, a pair of Eurocity trains ( Hamburg - Cottbus - Krakow ) also operated Wawel .

In the section Berlin- Schöneweide - Königs Wusterhausen , the regional train line OE 36 (Berlin-Schöneweide - Beeskow - Frankfurt (Oder) on the Grunow-Königs Wusterhausen railway line ) operated by the East German Railway (ODEG) also ran until the timetable change in December 2011 . After that, the Schöneweide regional train station was closed for construction work, the OE 36 (since December 2012 RB 36) ran from Berlin-Lichtenberg and only reached the Görlitzer Bahn at Grünauer Kreuz, since December 2014 it has only operated to Königs Wusterhausen.

As part of the structural change process associated with the coal phase-out , the line is to be upgraded for long-distance traffic and an ICE connection from Berlin via Cottbus and Görlitz to Wroclaw is to be set up.

Berlin area

Railway bridge of the Görlitzer Bahn over the Landwehr Canal, on the left the roundhouse of the Görlitzer Bahnhof, 1869

In the urban area of ​​Berlin, the Görlitzer Bahn is still largely in operation today. Only the short section between the Berlin Ringbahn and the former Görlitzer Bahnhof has been interrupted since 1952 and was later removed. The route is served by long-distance and regional traffic as well as by the Berlin S-Bahn, which, however, travel on different sections.

Today the long-distance tracks lead to the intersection with the Ringbahn at Treptower Park , then swivel onto the eastern Ringbahn via Ostkreuz and continue to Gesundbrunnen or leave the Ringbahn via a branch north of Ostkreuz station to Lichtenberg station . Trains that run to and from the new central station are already routed to the outer ring in southeast Berlin, at Grünauer Kreuz , and then taken to the city ​​railway via the Silesian Railway . The East and Central Station are also on the tram.

Although the Görlitzer Bahn had its own suburban tracks, these never led to the end of the line, but were instead routed to the ring or city railway from the start. This is still the case today. In addition to the ring connection at Treptower Park, there is also a connection to the Südring, which leaves the main route in Baumschulenweg and runs via Köllnischer Heide to the Südring. Both routes - the suburban railway and the connecting railway - were switched to electrical operation in 1929 and have been used by the S-Bahn since then.

By decision of July 23, 2012, the Federal Railway Authority cleared the no longer used railroad areas of the Görlitzer Bahn between Landwehr Canal and Ringbahn (km 0.9–2.2) from railway operations. It is around 45,000 m² in the Treptow-Köpenick district.
