Duivendrecht station (Dvd) is a combined rail and metro station in Duivendrecht, Netherlands. The station opened in May 1993 as part of the extension of the Zuidtak of the Amsterdam Ringspoorbaan, between Amsterdam RAI and Weesp. This station allows interchange between rail routes 20 and 30 which cross here on different levels. The lower level is a broad island platform which also houses the station hall. It serves line 30 from Schiphol to Weesp, Almere and Amersfoort. The higher level has two platforms each serving trains on line 20 from Amsterdam Centraal to Utrecht at the outer side and metros at the inner side. The metro line at this point runs between the two tracks of the main railway.

Duivendrecht is largely an interchange station: the village itself is quite small. However, the Duivendrecht railway station is near the Amsterdam ArenA and the Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA railway station. Since December 2006, fewer trains call at Duivendrecht because passenger trains heading from Utrecht towards Schiphol v.v. nowadays use the Utrechtboog.
