Frederikshavn railway station in 2008
The station is the terminus of the Aalborg-Frederikshavn railway line as well as the Skagensbanen railway line from Frederikshavn to Skagen. It offers direct inter-city connections to Copenhagen and regional rail services to Aalborg operated by DSB as well as local train services to Skagen operated by Nordjyske Jernbaner.
The first station in Frederikshavn opened in 1871 as the terminal station of the new Nørresundby-Frederikshavn railway line. The branch from Nørresundby to Frederikshavn opened on 16 August 1871, and on 7 January 1879, at the opening of the Limfjord Railway Bridge, the line was connected with Aalborg station, the Randers-Aalborg railway line and the rest of Denmark's railway lines.
The station became the terminus of the Skagensbanen railway line between Frederikshavn og Skagen in 1890. In 1899 it also became the terminus of the Sæbybanen railway line between Nørresundby og Frederikshavn via Sæby, until the branch between Sæby and Frederikshavn was closed in 1962.
In 1979 the station moved to its current location and the old station was closed and torn down.
Adjacent to the station is the Frederikshavn bus terminal.
