List of railway stations in North Rhine-Westphalia

Bonn-Beuel station is on the East Rhine Railway in the Bonn district of Beuel in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

It was opened on 1 March 1871 and has three platform tracks and several sidings. Next to it is the Rhein-Sieg-Eisenbahn station, the terminus of the Beuel–Großenbusch Light Railway (German: Kleinbahn Beuel–Großenbusch), which is used by special passenger services, especially during Pützchen’s market (a five or six day fair usually held in September). In addition, there is still a listed freight shed at the station.

The station is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 4 station.[1] If long-distance passenger trains are diverted from the West Rhine Railway to the East Rhine line, Bonn-Beuel station serves Bonn in place of Bonn Hauptbahnhof.

There is a stop in front of the station serving tram line 62 of the Bonn Stadtbahn, which runs through Beuel to Bonn city centre, Bonn Hauptbahnhof and Dottendorf and in the other direction through Ramersdorf to Oberkassel.
