Arth-Goldau railway station (German: Bahnhof SBB Arth-Goldau) is a railway station in the Swiss canton of Schwyz and municipality of Arth. The station is located in the centre of the village of Goldau, which forms part of Arth.[1][2][3]

The station is an important junction, where the Zug–Arth-Goldau line joins the main line of the Gotthard railway, and also where the Südostbahn line to Rapperswil diverges. Additionally the Vitznau–Rigi rack railway terminates in its own platforms above and at right angles to the main platforms.[1][2]
