Due to the fire in Berlin's Grunewald forest, regional and S-Bahn services to the west have been interrupted. The S-Bahn line S7 only runs from Berlin to Grunewald, as a railway spokesman said. In regional traffic, the RE1 and RE7 lines are currently being diverted via Golm with a stop in Charlottenburg. The Potsdam Hauptbahnhof and Berlin-Wannsee stops are no longer available. The RB21 and RB22 lines are interrupted between Berlin-Wannsee and Berlin-Friedrichstrasse. Passengers can still take the S1 to Potsdam.
In long-distance traffic, only the intercity connection in the direction of Magdeburg/Hanover/Stendal/Amsterdam is affected. The IC trains are currently being diverted via Spandau. Stops in Berlin-Wannsee and Potsdam are omitted.
The fire broke out the morning after an explosion at a police detonation site in Grunewald. Due to further explosions and flying debris, the fire brigade has not yet started extinguishing the fire, the emergency services have initially withdrawn to 1000 meters.
