The first Belluno railway station, located in Piazza Cesare Battisti, was opened on 11 November 1886, on completion of the Belluno-Cornuda portion of the historical line Belluno–Montebelluna–Treviso.
The current station was opened in 1912, upon the activation of the first leg (up to Longarone) of the Calalzo–Padua railway. The passenger building, which was a project of the architect Roberto Narducci, was constructed in 1928.
