Before a station was actually built, there were two stops on the Görlitzer Bahn. The current station is approximately at the height of the recorded since 1876 in the plans of the northern requirement stop Bude 10 Adlershof on the village street Adlershof (now: Dörpfeldstraße), the southern breakpoint Glienicke was at the height of the Glienicke way. The breakpoint on open tracks was used already since 1872, however the passenger volume grew so fast, that already in 1874 two side platforms were built. On January 8, 1894 a reception building at the new station Adlershof-Glienicke was opened and the breakpoint Glienicke abandoned. Since October 1901 the station was called Adlershof-Altglienicke, later Adlershof-Alt Glienicke.

With the establishment of the Teltow Canal from 1900 to 1906, there were extensive renovations and an increase in the settled industry. 1905 began reconstruction work in the course of raising the Görlitzer Bahn on a dam. By 1907 so two middle platforms, each one for the now running on their own tracks suburban railway (today's rapid-transit railway) and for the long-distance traffic originated. At the same time began the construction of the shunting north of Adlershof at the present operating station Schöneweide, whose tracks led to Adlershof in the Görlitzer Bahn, and extensive track systems on the premises of Adlershof.

In 1909 the tram Adlershof-Altglienicke was opened. In 1912, the tram Adlershof-Cöpenick followed by the urban tram Cöpenick. Only with the establishment of the Berlin tram 1920/1921 both routes were tied to a common line.

With the electrification of the Vorortbahn 1928 drove this starting from 6 November 1928 from Adlershof electrically. From January 1, 1935, the name addition Alt Glienicke was dropped, the station is now called Berlin-Adlershof.

On September 29, 1957, the platform of the mainline was abandoned and then demolished. The old Gründerzeit reception building, which was about the height of the southern pedestrian tunnel, was demolished in 1964. The conversion work, in the course of which in 1960 new bridge superstructures over the Rudower Chaussee were used, brought a new cut of the entrances. The new lobby was built in tile style of the 1960s at the intersection Dörpfeldstraße / Rudower Chaussee. On 7 October 1969 the opening of the building designed by the architects Horst Schubert and Manfred Gross took place.[3] The station area remained unchanged for more than 30 years.

With the establishment of the science and business location Adlershof (WISTA) from 1992, the desire arose for a powerful modern station. First plans were made in 1996, and on 5 September 2002 the conception of the new station was completed. However, the conversion planned for the end of 2003 to 2006 was repeatedly postponed.

Until 1962, the tram was on the Adlergestell east of the dam of the Görlitzer Bahn, since then it led at the station Adlershof on the Rudower Chaussee under the railway bridges and then had a stop at the southern exit west of the dam. There lies since decommissioning of the route to Altglienicke 1993 a turning loop. During the rebuilding of the station, the tram stop was temporarily relocated to a triangular turn on the Adlergestell east of the dam. The extension of the tram on the median strip of the Rudower Chaussee to the west to the Karl-Ziegler-Straße was opened on 4 September 2011, the turning loop located at the station was retained for operational purposes.[4] Since then, the bus lines from direction Rudower Chaussee are being led onto the tram line shortly before the station to relieve the traffic lane.

The new platform area was opened on 15 July 2009. The southern access tunnel was extended to Adlergestell and the new exit opened on November 11, 2010.[5] The construction work on the underpass should originally be completed by the end of 2010, but retired until 30 November 2011. On this day, the Rudower Chaussee was released again for general through traffic.

From 2006 to 2011 there was a comprehensive renovation. The existing bridges, lobbies, stairways and platforms were completely replaced by new buildings.
