Graz Hauptbahnhof, abbreviated Graz Hbf,[1] (German for Graz Main Station;[2] sometimes translated as Graz Central Station[3]) is the main railway station in Graz, the capital of the Austrian state of Styria. The station is located some 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) west of the city centre, to which it is connected by the tram.[3][4]

The station serves as a major node on the Southern Railway, which links it to Vienna in the north, and Slovenia in the south. It is also the terminus of the Styrian Eastern Railway, which runs eastwards towards Hungary, and of the local Köflacherbahn to the west. In future, the Koralm Railway will provide a direct link from Graz to Klagenfurt and points further west.

Near platform 1a at Graz Hauptbahnhof is a two-storey weather-proof parking facility for up to 275 bicycles.[5]
