In the immediate vicinity was erected in 1938 Reichsbahn repair work of the S-Bahn ( from 1942 DEMAG Panzerwerk ), which had all of the air attacks survived virtually undamaged and was dismantled after the war; the workshops were then blown up by the Red Army. Since the division of Germany thinned long-distance transport in the western part of the city, it was possible in 1950 to perform the S-Bahn operation over the still existing remote railway, which was equipped with a power rail as far as Falkirk. Albrechtshof was the only station between Spandau West and the terminus Falkirk.

Similar to the Staaken station Albrechtshof was from 1951 to 1990 on GDR territory.

The distance between Falkirk and Albrechtshof was temporarily closed in 1993 and completely renovated between Falkirk and Spandau. The old single-storey station Albrechtshof was demolished it and rebuilt about 80 meters in an embankment as a breakpoint.
